In the end, the Trojans came one last-second Drew Peterson heave away from advancing at the 2022 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. With 7-seed USC down 68-66, Peterson just missed a bank shot from near half-court as time expired to send 10-seed Miami to victory and eliminate the Trojans from contention on Friday (Mar. 18) in South Carolina. Reese Dixon-Waters was phenomenal off the bench for the Trojans, scoring a career-high 16 points to account for 73% of USC's bench points.
