USC, which advanced to the second round of the Postseason Women's NIT in 2002, looks to carry its late-season momentum into 2003.

This season, USC will look to All-American candidates and returning All-Pac-10 first team selections Ebony Hoffman and Aisha Hollans, in addition to 2002 Pac-10 All-Freshman team selection Rachel Woodward to make the difference.

USC In Pac-10 Openers
USC is 11-6 all-time in Pac-10 openers - 5-2 on the road, 6-3 at home and 0-1 at a neutral site *** The Women of Troy are 8-8 in the first road game of each Pac-10 season, and 12-5 in the first home game *** In the opening series of Pac-10 play, USC is 20-11 all-time and has defeated both opponents eight times (2001-02 vs. OSU/Oregon, 1999-00 vs. Wash/WSU, 1996-97 vs. Wash/WSU, 1993-94 vs. Oregon/OSU, 1992-93 vs. Arizona/ASU, 1991-92 vs. Oregon/OSU, 1990-91 vs. UCLA and 1987-88 vs. Oregon/OSU) *** The Trojans have opened the Pac-10 season five times against the Oregon schools - four times against Oregon State (1992, 94, 95, 02) and once against Oregon (1988).

Last year, the Women of Troy defeated Oregon State, 69-65, and Oregon, 83-73, at home on Dec. 20 and 22 to begin the conference schedule.

Holiday Season Marks Start of Pac-10 Play
The Women of Troy barely had a chance to finish unwrapping Christmas gifts before jumping on a flight to Oregon for the first conference series of 2003. Thanks to the newly-added Pac-10 women's basketball tournament, last season marked the first time-ever the Women of Troy played Pac-10 games in the month of the December. Even as a previous member of the WCAA (1977-85) and Pac West (1986) conferences, USC had only played one conference game in December (the Trojans defeated San Diego State, 102-66, in San Diego on Dec. 14, 1982) before last season. This year, USC will meet Oregon State and Oregon on Dec. 27 and 29.

Rometra Craig Shines In USC Debut
Junior transfer Rometra Craig (Portola Valley, Calif.) made her USC debut against SMU on Dec. 19 and Colorado on Dec. 21. In just two games, she averaged 18.5 points, 4.0 assists and 4.5 steals off the bench. The Duke transfer officially became eligible on Dec. 19 (one full year after her transfer date). A unanimous prep All-American at Archbishop Mitty High in San Jose, Calif., Craig was a member of Duke's heralded recruiting class of 2002. Before transferring, the junior averaged 17.9 minutes, 6.9 points and 2.1 rebounds per game with the Blue Devils. Craig will have one-and-a-half years of remaining eligibility at USC.

Hoffman Seeing Double
Forward/center Ebony Hoffman collected her fourth and fifth double-doubles of the season last week against SMU and Colorado. Against the Mustangs on Dec. 19, she posted 11 points and 11 rebounds, then followed the performance with 23 points and 12 rebounds against the Buffaloes on Dec. 21. In the two games she was also perfect at the line, hitting 13-of-13 free throws.

Game Recap: USC def. SMU, 80-58
Rometra Craig made her season debut with 18 points and three three-pointers to lead the Women of Troy to a 80-58 win over SMU on Dec. 19. Aisha Hollans scored 14 points and added a career-high 15 rebounds as USC snapped a two-game losing streak and recorded a season-high for points. USC used a balanced attack as four players scored in double digits. Rachel Woodward scored 18 points while Ebony Hoffman registered her fourth double-double of the season with 11 points and 11 boards on the evening. Craig, who was eligible to play for the first time since transferring last year from Duke, sparked a 30-8 run early in the first half with a three-pointer. The run took shape after Meghan Gnekow drilled back-to-back threes and the Women of Troy never looked back. USC shot a season-high 54 percent from the floor (33-for-61) while going 6-for-8 (67%) from three-point range.

Game Recap: Colorado def. USC, 93-86
Despite an 18-point second half performance from Ebony Hoffman, USC fell to Colorado, 93-86, on Dec. 21 in Boulder. Hoffman led the Women of Troy with 23 points and 12 rebounds, including her second-half run, which helped the Women of Troy erase a 12-point deficit with 1:18 remaining. Rometra Craig recorded 19 points, while Rachel Woodward added 13 points. The first half was sluggish for both teams as USC was called for 16 fouls. The Buffaloes went 18-for-22 from the line while the Women of Troy did not have an attempt. Colorado used a 20-9 run in the final five minutes to take a 36-26 lead at halftime. Colorado led by 12 with 4:30 remaining in the game before USC used a spirited 16-4 run to even the game. After Hoffman made two free throws to tie the game at 86-86, she fouled out of the game with 58 seconds as Colorado scored seven straight points on free throws.

Oregon State Connections
The Beavers have three Southern California natives on their roster, including junior guard Leilani Estevan (Los Angeles), sophomore guard Juleen Smith (Inglewood) and freshman guard Tarika Campbell (Long Beach) *** OSU second assistant coach Jualeah Woods is a 1994 graduate and four-year letterwinner (1991-94) at USC *** In addition to Woods, OSU first assistant Todd Corman is also a Trojan alumnus. Corman graduated from USC in 1979 with a bachelor of art degree in cinema communication *** Oregon State head women's volleyball coach Nancy Somera was a former assistant volleyball coach at USC (1991-98) under then-head coach Lisa Love. Somera also played at USC (1985-88).

Oregon Connections
Oregon has one Southern California native on its roster - sophomore guard Brandi Davis from La Habra.

Top Point Production
After posting the lowest (39 points vs. Tennessee) and third-lowest (44 points vs. UConn) record for point totals in USC history, the Women of Troy successfully rebounded last week. Thanks to an improved shooting percentage, USC posted its highest point totals of the season last week with 80 points against SMU and 86 points versus Colorado. It's previous high was 64 points in a one-point victory at Pepperdine on Dec. 4.

Much-Improved Shooting

Going into the Texas-Colorado road trip, the Trojans' season high had been a 46.0 percent effort at Pepperdine (Dec. 4) and the season low was 18.2 percent against UConn (Dec. 7).

No Rest For The Weary
The Trojans spent no time at all warming up this season. In just the first month of the season, USC played 10 games, faced five ranked opponents (No. 29 Colorado State, No. 4 Kansas State, No. 10 Notre Dame, No. 5 UConn and No. 4 Tennessee), took five road trips with stops in Colorado (twice), Kansas, Connecticut and Texas, and played four home games.

Chris Gobrecht Collects 400th Career Victory

She is the third active Pac-10 coach to reach the 400-victory plateau behind Arizona's Joan Bonvicini and Stanford's Tara VanDerveer.
