  • Men’s basketball triumphs over Washington at Galen Center

    first_imgThe first 20 minutes of the game acted as an adjustment period for a USC offense missing star freshman forward Onyeka Okongwu, who was sidelined with a concussion. The Trojans went 9-33 from the field during the half and allowed the Huskies to gain a 5-point lead on the heels of a standout performance from freshman forward Jaden McDaniels. Stewart was guarded by Rakocevic, freshman forward Max Agbonkpolo and Mobley. Agbonkpolo, whose minutes have been limited by Okongwu’s dominant presence on the court, finished with a season-best six rebounds that contributed to a team total of 45.  USC finds itself tied at fifth place in the Pac-12 with a March Madness berth still up in the air. At halftime, USC alum and current San Antonio Spur DeMar DeRozan was honored by having his No. 10 jersey retired. The four-time NBA All-Star and Olympic gold medalist led the Trojans in the 2008-09 season to a Pac-10 title. DeRozan attended the game alongside his family and former teammates. But Rakocevic was the star of the second half turnaround. He poured in 14 points in the final 20 minutes, giving him a team-best 19 on the night to go along with nine rebounds in Okongwu’s absence.  The game represented a stark contrast to USC’s 72-40 blowout loss to Washington in January: USC limited the Huskies to a 35% shooting percentage Thursday.  USC’s shooting prowess eventually began to wear Washington down. After freshman guard Ethan Anderson went out with a hyperextended knee four minutes into the second half, senior guard Jonah Mathews got hot, sinking three 3-pointers and finishing the game with 16 points. By the end of the half, McDaniels had already bested his 12-point- per-game average with 14. The guard finished with a season-best 19 points.  “Great win for our team,” USC head coach Andy Enfield said after the game. “It was a good battle defensively … We had eight guys show up tonight and really compete.” The Trojans will take on Washington State at Galen Center Saturday. Tipoff is at 5 p.m.center_img The scoring explosion was coupled with a defensive surge that allowed USC to win the turnover battle, forcing Washington to cough the ball up 11 times. McDaniels didn’t see nearly as many easy buckets in the second half while teammate freshman forward Isaiah Stewart was limited to just 4 points in the paint. “It’s getting real, but you just have to stay focused,” Mathews said. “It’s all going to come together. We got to keep on winning.” USC returned to Galen Center Thursday and left with a 62-56 win against Pac-12 foe Washington. The victory broke the Trojans’ three game losing streak and improved their conference record to 7-5. The Huskies ran a tough zone defense, but it didn’t make the paint impenetrable. Once the Trojans got in the lane, it was just a matter of finishing their shots. Unfortunately for USC, their forwards proved unable to do so for much of the half. Senior forward Nick Rakocevic entered the break with only 6 points alongside freshman forward Isaiah Mobley’s 5. To keep their momentum going against Washington State this weekend, the Trojans will have to continue protecting the ball and rely on their defensive ability to shut opponents down. “These are the moments we should all be able to enjoy and express and feel the love and be with the ones you love and care about,” DeRozan told the audience before the banner reveal. “I appreciate everyone here, I appreciate USC for honoring me with this.” But the Trojans’ offensive energy dramatically improved in the second half. USC scored 9 unanswered points to start the half and reclaimed a 34-30 lead within just three minutes. Senior forward Nick Rakocevic nearly registered a double-double Thursday night with 19 points and 9 rebounds. (James Wolfe | Daily Trojan)last_img read more

(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Respect your elders. But hammer his fastball.The Dodgers found the senior slinging of 45-year-old Bartolo Colon to their liking, pounding him for eight runs on nine hits, including three more home runs, in the first four innings of a 12-5 victory over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.The win was the Dodgers’ eighth in their last 10 games – a stretch during which they have identified their starting pitcher each day like game shows call contestants out of the audience – and 18 of their past 24.“That ‘hitting-is-contagious’ thing is real,” said Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger, who was on base four times including an RBI double in a seven-run fourth inning. “We have a really deep lineup. I wouldn’t want to face us. Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense Dodgers bench slumping Cody Bellinger for a day It is. But no one expected it to play out with Muncy leading the team in home runs. But his second-inning solo launch off Colon was his team-high 13th – despite not joining the major-league club until mid-April and bringing with him a major-league resume’ that included all of five home runs in 215 previous big-league at-bats.“A grinder, a guy who is all in and will do whatever it takes for us to win,” Roberts said of his expectations when Muncy arrived from Triple-A on April 17. “I didn’t expect to see the consistent slug and the ability to barrel baseballs. This guy, he knows where the barrel’s at.“I just didn’t appreciate it. I didn’t know the player. In spring training, obviously it was a small sample. But the more you see him … there’s a lot to like.”Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.There’s a lot to see of Colon, too and he has become the Don Quixote, assaulting the windmills of age – and fitness – in the image of a beer-guzzling fan who somehow found his way onto the field. Tuesday, he was matched against an opposing starting pitcher who was nine months old when Colon made his major-league debut. In the home dugout, the manger was a teammate from another century.Colon has remarkably held back the hands of time, throwing his fastball 80 percent of the time even though it has lost 5 mph since he and Roberts were Cleveland Indians together. But these Dodgers feast on fastballs the way Colon … well, appears to have feasted on a lot of things over the years.They put up three runs in the second inning on a walk to Bellinger, a two-out double just short of clearing the fence by Puig and a two-run home run by Pederson.Related Articles For Pederson, it was one of seven home runs in his last 26 plate appearances after he hit just one home run in his first 151 trips to the plate this season.The Dodgers put the game away with a seven-run fourth inning that included a two-run home run by Puig – who had no home runs in his first 100 at-bats this season but now has eight in his last 77 at-bats. Yasmani Grandal drove in two runs with a single, Bellinger one with his double.The smoke billowing from the Rangers’ team ERA provided cover for Ferguson, who looked at least somewhat more at ease in his second big-league start. Ferguson lasted only 1-2/3 innings in his debut last week. This time, he was only asked to go four and did that ably enough before Roberts let the bullpen coast to the finish.“Caleb was better today,” Roberts said, non-committal when asked if Ferguson will remain in the Dodgers’ needy rotation. “I think with Caleb – he’s still green. He’s still learning the league and learning himself.“It’s in there. Caleb can pitch. He competes really well.” Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ center_img Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury “I think winning is contagious too. We finally got that monkey off our back.”That monkey was sitting comfortably when the Dodgers bottomed out 10 games under .500 (16-26) in mid-May. Since then, they have outhomered their opponents 46-19 and experienced a real June boom. The Dodgers lead all of MLB this month in nearly every offensive category, including runs scored (84 in 10 games) and home runs (29).Joc Pederson, Max Muncy and Yasiel Puig each homered in Tuesday’s win. Pederson (7) and Muncy (6) lead MLB in home runs this month.“It’s hard to explain homers. But, gosh, you see what Joc’s done this month, Max has done essentially all year,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “I think obviously they’re elevating the baseball, squaring it up, taking good swings, having good at-bats. I think across the board. Even the ability to use the opposite-field gap, take a walk, hit a line drive – I just think we’re taking a lot of good swings, grinding at-bats.“We’re built sort of on slugging, guys who can take the walk, identify strike from ball and it’s kind of playing out that way right now.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
