RECORD: 11-10 overall, 3-6 Pac-12
COMING UP: Tonight vs. USC, 7:05; Saturday vs. UCLA, 2 (Root)
OUTLOOK: Tonight could be a get-well game of sorts for the Cougars, who are facing a USC team badly depleted by injuries. The Trojans (6-16, 1-8) won their first conference game of the season on Saturday against Utah, but have otherwise struggled. They’re dead last in the conference in scoring offense, field-goal percentage and 3-point field-goal percentage. And they’ve lost forward Aaron Fuller and center Dewayne Dedmon to season-ending injuries. Just about the lone bright spot is sophomore guard Maurice Jones, who scores 14.5 points per game. UCLA (12-9, 5-4) earned a home sweep over Utah and Colorado last week.
