A bunch of USC-related news on this Sunday:
  • Trojan baseball is in the middle of a doubleheader with New Mexico as we speak. Saturday's game was rained out at Dedeaux Field, so the Lobos and Trojans are playing two today. USC won the first game, 6-2, on the strength of a strong outing from new weekend starter Ben Mount. Mount gave up just one earned run in 5 2/3 innings. But Kevin Couture, on the mound to start the second game, didn't have similar luck. Couture faced nine batters and retired just two of them — with a final line of four runs in 2/3 of an inning. And it's gone downhill from there, as the Trojans currently trail 16-7 in the ninth inning. Follow along here.
  • In more USC news, men's basketball lost Saturday afternoon in Arizona to end its season on a five-game losing streak, but the women are on an exact opposite streak. Ashley Corral and Co. have won five in a row, culminating in a 62-52 win at home against Arizona State on Saturday. Each of the past five victories for the Women of Troy have come by margins of 10 points or less.
  • USC-bound forward Bryce Jones of Woodland Hills Taft had a monster game in last night's City Division I title game. Jones, at times matching up against former USC commit Dwayne Polee, exploded for 29 points on 8-of-14 shooting. He also had 12 rebounds, by far the most active player on the Galen Center court. But his Taft team fell, 70-60, to Westchester for the second consecutive time in the city finals. We profiled Jones in advance of Saturday's game, and you can also hear from him after the loss.
  • A few links: Stanley Havili is interviewedby USCfootball.com, the Daily News' Tom Hoffarth tells a remarkable storyof USC long-distance runner Greg Woodburn, and an Arizona Daily star columnist writeson USC coach Kevin O'Neill's blowup at the end of Saturday's game.
