USC Battles Stanford Seeking Rare Bay Area Road Sweep

The USC Trojans are looking for their first road sweep of the Bay Area schools since 1992 tonight when they face the Stanford Cardinal at Maples Pavilion. The Trojans got their second Pac-10 conference road win of the season on Thursday night when they defeated the Cal Bears 78-75 at Haas Pavilion. USC clobbered Stanford at Galen Center 65-42 on January 20.

USC held Stanford to just 22.2% shooting (14 for 63 from the field) on January 20, including just three for 18 from three-point range. It was the lowest shooting percentage allowed by the Trojans in the last 30 years. Tonight's game features the top two defensive teams in the Pac-10, as both USC and Stanford have allowed 63.4 points per game this season.

Here are tonight's probable starting lineups:

USC (14-12, 6-7)

Smith made his first start of the season Thursday night against Cal, but scored just four points in 24 minutes before fouling out.

Stanford (13-12, 6-8)

USC is 9-0 this season when they allow fewer than 60 points. Tonight's 7:30 p.m. PST game will be televised on Fox Sports West. Paul Sunderland, former Trojans point guard Brandon Granville, and Nischelle Turner are on the call.
