USC, which advanced to the second round of the Postseason Women's NIT in 2002, looks to carry its late-season momentum into 2003. Under sixth-year head coach Chris Gobrecht, the Women of Troy return four starters and seven total letterwinners from last year's squad which posted a 16-14 overall record and 11-7 mark in the Pac-10 to finish tied for fourth place. 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 Home Openers
The Women of Troy are 12-5 in the first home game of the Pac-10 season *** Last season, USC defeated Cal, 69-53, in the Pac-10 home opener *** The last time USC faced Washington State and Washington in the first Pac-10 home series was in 1999-00 when the Women of Troy swept the Cougars and Huskies *** USC has swept the first Pac-10 home series eight times (2002 - ORE/OSU, 2000 - WASH/WSU, 1994 - WASH/WSU, 1993 - ORE/OSU, 1992 - WASH/WSU, 1991 - ARIZ/ASU, 1988 - ORE/OSU, 1987 - ORE/OSU *** The Trojans are 20-11 all-time in the first home series of the Pac-10 season.

Hollans Making A Name On The Boards
Guard Aisha Hollans has always been a threat on both sides of the ball. She is currently averaging 11.3 points per game (third on the team), but also ranks second on the team (behind Hoffman) in rebounding with 6.2 boards per game. Against Oregon (Dec. 29), she led in rebounding and collected her first double-double of the season (sixth of her career) with 10 rebounds and 13 points. Hollans ranks 12th in the Pac-10 in rebounding (second among guards) and 18th in scoring.

Hoffman Tops Pac-10 In Steals
She spends all of her time in the post, but forward/center Ebony Hoffman still manages to steal the ball more than any other player in the Pac-10. Averaging 2.83 steals per game, Hoffman tops the Pac-10 and is the only post player to appear among the top 10.

Game Recap: Oregon State def. USC, 63-61
In true USC-Oregon State fashion, the first match-up of the 2003 season between these two teams came down to the wire as the Beavers walked away with a 63-61 victory over the visiting Women of Troy on Dec. 27. Last season, all three games between USC and Oregon State were decided by a total of seven points. The Women of Troy started hot, hitting their first 5-of-7 shots and built a 10-point lead, 16-6, by the 14:27 mark. But USC began to turn the ball over thanks to fouls and poor passing, allowing Oregon State to climb its way back into the game. The Trojans were held without a field goal for nearly six minutes and OSU managed to knot the score at 26-26 and eventually took a 33-32 lead into the break. Both teams had trouble finding the basket for most of the second half. OSU held on to its halftime advantage and led by as many as five, 43-38, at the 13-minute mark. The Trojans tied the score 47-47 at 7:43, then took their first lead of the half 54-52 at 3:44. The two teams alternated with the lead nine times in the remaining minutes. Trailing by two, 63-61, with 0:23 left on the clock, USC had possession of the ball but was unable to convert three shot attempts as time ran down and the Beavers sealed the victory.

Game Recap: Oregon def. USC, 79-73
Ebony Hoffman scored 23 points in the second half, but it was not enough as the Women of Troy fell to Oregon, 79-73, on Dec. 29. Hoffman finished the game with a team-leading 25 points. Rometra Craig contributed 14 points, while Jessica Cheeks and Aisha Hollans posted 13 points apiece. Hollans led with 10 rebounds in the game. Thanks to a 66.7 percent shooting effort in the second half, Oregon shot 56.0 percent from the field, while the Women of Troy tallied a 39.7 shooting effort. Despite a depleted nine-player roster, Oregon came out firing in the first half, while the Trojans could not get a shot to fall. The Ducks led by as many as 11 points (23-12 at 10:58) at one point, but the Women of Troy steadily improved. Thanks to two final three-pointers by Cheeks, USC used a 14-2 run in the final five minutes to enter halftime ahead, 38-34. USC was outscored 8-0 at the start of the second half to put the Ducks back in the lead, 42-38. At the 10:50 mark Cheeks hit a jumper to knot the score, 55-55, and the Trojans held a brief advantage when Hoffman scored on a fastbreak to make it 57-55 at 10:23. But Oregon outscored USC 24-to-16 in the final 10 minutes to earn the 79-73 victory.

Washington State Connections
Washington State has two California natives on its roster - freshman guard Charmaine Jones hails from Rolling Hills Prep in Los Angeles and junior transfer Bianca McCall, a 6-foot-1 forward, attended Santa Rosa (Calif.) Junior College *** Cougar head coach Sherri Murrell spent four seasons at Pacific prior to moving to Pullman, Wash. She graduated from Pepperdine in 1991 and played two seasons for the Waves.

Washington Connections
From 1986 to 1996, USC head coach Chris Gobrecht 'put Washington women's basketball on the map. In 11 years (as Washington's head coach), she created a product that the city of Seattle embraced...,' according to the 2002-03 Husky media guide. Gobrecht was the first women's basketball coach to lead the Huskies for five consecutive seasons, win 100 games, and reach the 300-win milestone in her career. She became the winningest coach in Washington history in just her fourth season, and in 10 of the 11 years, her teams posted 17 or more wins. *** Washington has two Southern California natives on its roster - Guiliana and Gioconda Mendiola who hail from Lake Forest.

2002 Elimination Rematch
Sunday's game against Washington will be last year's end-of-season rematch for the Women of Troy who were knocked out of the 2002 Postseason Women's NIT thanks to a 97-87 loss to the Huskies in Seattle on March 17.

Keep Your Eye On The Ball
There is one category that the Trojans have definitely dominated this season - turnovers! Despite averaging 22.7 turnovers in the first 12 games, the Women of Troy have used it to their advantage by forcing opponents to turn the ball over 25.7 times per outing. With a fast-paced pressure defense, USC has also managed to collect 11.5 steals per game.

Nonconference Schedule Provides Maximum Test
There were no 'easy' games for the Women of Troy on the 2002-03 nonconference schedule. Prior to the start of the Pac-10 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.

Opponent Notes

Washington State (0-9, 0-1 Pac-10) -- Last Saturday, the Cougars were nearly able to do what they have not done in 33 tries - win a game. Washington State rallied from a 19-point first half deficit to take the lead over its instate rival Washington, before the Huskies pulled ahead on free throws in the final two minutes. Despite the loss, Washington State is coming to Los Angeles with momentum. The Cougars are led by forward Bianca McCall who is averaging 11.3 points and 7.8 rebounds per game, but did not start against Washington. Head coach Sherri Murrell is in her first season at the helm of the WSU program. She inherited eight letterwinners and two starters from a team that went 2-27 overall and 0-18 in the Pac-10 last season.

USC-Washington State Series Record -- Friday's game will mark the 34th meeting between these two teams. The first was in 1981-82 in a preseason game before the Cougars had joined the Pac-10. USC owns a 22-11 overall record against WSU and has won the last five of six meetings. The Women of Troy are 13-4 against the Cougars at home.
