    Enfield was thoroughly out coached but our athletes came through. This USC team is a much mentally tougher team than we’ve experienced in the past. They almost expect to win and that’s a great quality.

    Oregon and AZ both won by 5 or less. OSU was up by 9 at Stanford at the half. bRuins are up over the Buffs.
    There is a lot of parity. The Pac-12 tourney is wide open.

    I would say we and Oregon would be the favorites.

    meanwhile fucla is somehow leading against Colorado 64-53 3:26 left

    Goes to show that in the PAC, road games aren't gimmes no matter how crappy the opponent.

    Oregon and Zona also won by less than 5 on the road tonight.

    Disagree. about the coaching. He made the adjustments even when the players couldn't throw a pea in the ocean.
    Agree that they play tough defense and don't get rattled down the stretch,

    We couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn for the first 10 minutes.

    A win is a win.
    Ball movement and shooting is key.

    All five games in the Pac-12 last night were decided by 5 or less and included Fucla beating the Buffs and OSU beating Stanford on the road. The Wild West.

    Student section was packed, we had lousy alumni support, but Saturday looks pretty good maybe best crowd in a long time for a non UCLA game. This is our year, come and support the team. Games are fun, cheap, easy in and out, good for families. Get off the couch

    I agree. I have had concerns about Enfield's coaching in the past, but he and his assistants have done a nice job with these players. It is hard to get a young team to play with confidence consistently, but they seem to be that way. This young team is playing defense better than any previous team under Enfield. Perhaps the addition of Mobley as an assistant is helping?

    Holding an opponent to 52 points is going to result in a win almost every time. Enfield wasn't out-coached. Just a bad shooting night. Big O was off. Mathews was off. Luckily Nic played one of his better games and Weaver played well. Also, another nice night from the free throw line.

    Classic trap game looking forward to Colorado. But they got it done.

    Not pretty but I’ll take the W.

    How times have changed. Was the Buff game against the bRuins a trap game as they were looking forward to SC?
    GO SC!

    Pleasantly surprised with this team's ability to play defense. Always thought CAE's teams were very inconsistent defensively in past years. But, he has this team playing very strong D - and it's great to see.
