At first glance, the USC men’s basketball attempt to get revenge on the state of Oregon looked like a shame. While playing with an energy that revealed the added motivation to return the favor to a beaver team that defeated the Trojans last week, the USC’s offense didn’t seem up to the task.

But the Trojans came out with a different accuracy in the second half, shooting 61.5% off the ground and 50% on 10 attempts out of 3-point range to get a 75-62 win eighth in the last nine games.

Freshman Center Evan Mobley led the Trojans with 14 points (five dunks) and 13 rebounds, the fifth double-double of the 7-footer in eight games. Isaiah White added 11 points and five rebounds. Oregon state security guard Ethan Thompson led all scorers with 20 points.

USC (13-3, 6-2 in Pac-12) set an early tone defensively. The Trojans broke out a press in court early after a three-point game by Isaiah Mobley. A few possessions later, Evan Mobley blocked a 3-point attempt by Beaver to force a gunshot clock injury.

The Trojans’ offense was missing, but the efforts were still evident after their 58:56 loss to the Beavers last week (8: 6, 4: 4). USC scored five offensive rebounds in the first four minutes of play and 15 in the first half, adding up to eight second chance points.

This was vital as the Trojans couldn’t get the ball into the basket consistently in the first half and made a third of their 39 attempts. Evan Mobley ended the first half by finding Tahj Eaddy for a jumper and then delivering a dunk for a three point lead.

But the Trojans heated up to begin the second half, starting with a 3-pointer of second chance from White. It was only when USC became small that the Trojans were able to expand their lead to double-digit numbers.

With the Mobley brothers on the bench, Chevez Goodwin was surrounded by four guards. The group made an 8-0 run, six from Goodwin, to increase the lead to 12.

The advantage increased to 16 with a 3-pointer from Noah Baumann, who scored 11 points in 3-on-6 shooting from 3-point range. The state of Oregon responded with a 9-0 run on three 3-pointers to force a USC timeout of 3:33.

But the Trojans finished the game 8-12, holding the Beavers for the last 150 seconds with no field goal to end the win.
