Yesterday in men’s basketball: Pennsylvania 99, USC 61.
That’s right, the Trojans were creamed by the Quakers (5-4), an unranked, thoroughly mediocre Ivy League team that boasts losses to such powerhouses as Drexel and Delaware. And the game was in Los Angeles, for heaven’s sake. USC is now 6-5, with notably ignominious defeats at the hands of Rhode Island, UC Santa Barbara, and now, Penn. Hey Trojans — how do you spell NIT? (And guess what: On Thursday, we get to play #2-ranked Arizona. Oh, goody.)
Another ouch, in women’s basketball this time: the Women of Troy (6-9) lost to archrival UCLA, 72-64.
I miss football season already.
