The USC Trojans (12-2, 1-0) are set to play a road Pac12 Conference matchup against the Washington Huskies (10-4, 0-1) at the Alaska Airlines Arena in Seattle on Sunday at 10 p.m. EST. Both teams last saw action on Thursday with USC knocking off Washington State by 9 on the road, while Washington is coming off of a tough 66-64 home loss to UCLA. These teams played twice last year with Washington winning both games by a score of 78-75 in the conference tournament and 75-62 on their home court. Washington will be looking to duplicate the results of last seasons’ game but USC is a better team this season that will present a challenge. 


The USC Trojans are averaging 74 points per game on 45% field goal shooting on the offensive end. The Trojans are allowing 67 points per game on 38% field goal shooting enforcing 13.6 turnovers per game and 7.8 Steals and adding 2.2 blocks per contest. The Trojans are led by Onyeke Okongwu 18.4 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 3.2 blocks per game. 


The Washington Huskies are averaging 73 points per game on 47% field goal shooting but poorly from 3 at only 33%. The Huskies are allowing 64 points per game on 38% field goal shooting and allowing only 31% from three-point land. The Huskies are forcing 14 turnovers while adding 6 steals and 2 blocks on the defensive end. Washington is led by Isaiah Stewart with 19.6 points 9 rebounds and 2 blocks per game. 


You can expect this to be a fast-paced high scoring game, especially since USC has won its last three road games, scoring an average of 73 points however they have not faced any competition other than LSU. Washington will be hungry for a win after losing 2 straight to very tough teams in UCLA and Houston.  Look for this to be a close game until the end with the Huskies pulling away to get a win and avoid a 3 game losing streak.
