Big Problems: USC is led by the Mobley brothers: newbie Evan, a 7-foot and likely 2021 NBA lottery player, and older brother Isaiah, a 6-10 year old averaging 11. 3 rebounds per game. Add runner-up scorer Drew Peterson, a 6-8 guard and trio of players 6-9 or more from the bench, and the Trojans boast of size the Huskies haven’t faced yet – and possibly in not anymore this season.
« There aren’t many teams in the country that put their size or length or focus on throwing the ball in, » said Dan Hurley. « Obviously, the Mobley brothers – you have an NBA player, then you have a potential top pick. Peterson played great and is a tough matchup because of his size and skill . . . and they have this depth in which they bring greatness to this forecourt again and again. ”
Carlton fits ?: If the huskies leave with a larger line-up, this could open the door for Josh Carlton to finally log a few minutes. The 6-foot-11 senior, who started 66 games in a row earlier in the season, saw just three minutes off the bench in UConn’s season opener win over Central Connecticut and then spent the entire November of the Huskies. 27 win over Hartford on the bench. It’s clear he hasn’t shown much in practice and has fallen into Hurley’s favor, but maybe Thursday night will give him a break.
« There were reasons Josh was on the rotation – the coach’s decision or just things to bring up, » said Hurley. « This is obviously a game where all of our front court players have hands on deck with the size and quality they throw at you over and over on the front court. Even (newbies) Javonte (Brown), Richie Springs, all of our front court guys have to be ready because they throw it in and these guys are a problem out there because they are super adept and know how to play against doubles. ”
Tahj my-hall: Tahj Eaddy from West Haven, a high level transfer, is the starting point of the USC. He averages 12. 7 points and a team best time 3. 3 assists per game, 45 shoot. 5 percent from the 3-point range in USC’s first three games. Eaddy never played in Mohegan Sun when visiting Notre Dame-West Haven for three years, but was in the building several times to watch games.
Eaddy is a UConn fan rooted in the 2011 and 2014 national championship teams.
