The USC Trojans have made a (4: 1) start to this season after defeating UC Irvine (91-56). . The Trojans made 12 three points and shot 51% off the field. Noah Baumann and Tahj Eaddy were a combined 7-11 for three. USC getting the production from their guards is huge considering what they get from the Mobley brothers.
The Trojan’s best player is star newcomer Evan Mobley. Mobley, considered the top pick in the 2021 NBA draft, averages (17). 6 PPG) and (9. 0 RPG) on the season. His inside-out play and ability to block shots has really helped USC so far this year. Mobley’s game is certainly something important to focus on.
Transfer Drew Peterson has been incredible for the Trojans this year. Peterson, a transfer from Rice, is the second top scorer at 12. 0 PPG and shoots 60. 6% of the field. The guard game has been a big unknown for USC this year and Peterson has built stability there.
Stanford is (2-2) in the season and wins against North Carolina A&T (78:46). Due to Santa Clara County’s Covid-19 protocols, the cardinal was unable to play a game at home this season.
Stanford is run by senior Oscar da Silva (17). 3 PPG) and Daejon Davis (14. 5 PPG). Freshman Ziaire Williams got off to a sluggish start during his freshmen season (9). 8 PPG). He is a very talented player and will get started soon.
The Cardinal is known as an excellent defensive team, ranking 5th according to Kenpom. Occupied place in the country. But they fight on the offensive end, where they make the 80. to take … place. In order for Stanford to beat the more talented teams on its schedule, players like Williams need to be reinforced.
This is a pretty even matchup and both teams are very talented. I think the difference is that Evan Mobley is going to be too much for Stanford and the Trojans should take the win.
