USC Vs. Arizona State Basketball: Trojans Lose Again 62-53

Even with two starters and another rotation player not playing Thursday night due to team suspension, the Arizona State Sun Devils were too much for the USC Trojans to handle, picking up a 62-53 win at Galen Center. It was the fourth straight loss for USC, which fell to 0-3 in Pac-12 Conference play.

Arizona State (5-9, 1-1) shot a blistering 61.1% from the field, which must seem like a misprint to the Trojans. USC shot just 37.5% for the game, the seventh time in their last eight games and ninth time of the season that they have shot under 40% from the field.

Aaron Fuller led the Trojans with 14 points in defeat. Maurice Jones added 13 points and four assists for USC.

The Sun Devils suspended Keala King, Kyle Cain, and Chris Colvin for "unacceptable conduct" and they did not make the trip to Los Angeles for Thursday's game. Carrick Felix led ASU with 22 points in the win. Trent Lockett had 19 points and nine rebounds for the Sun Devils.

USC (5-11, 0-3) hosts Arizona on Sunday afternoon.

USC Basketball Looks To Take Advantage Of ASU Suspensions

The USC Trojans are coming off a Bay Area sweepfest (and they were the ones getting swept), and they'll need all the help they can get to try and start winning basketball games. So they have to be happy with the news that three of the most prominent Arizona St. Sun Devils basketball players will be out of commission in this contest.

Doug Haller of the Arizona Republic reports.

Starters Keala King and Kyle Cain, along with reserve guard Chris Colvin, have been suspended for "unacceptable conduct" and did not make the trip to Los Angeles. Their status will be revisited next week, which means they also will miss Saturday's contest against UCLA.

USC should now have a golden opportunity to put a win on their Pac-12 record tonight, as the Trojans have a rare game where they will have the deeper team and more talent on their roster. USC has Maurice Jones, Alexis Moore, Byron Wesley, Aaron Fuller and Dewayne Dedmon starting, which is no one's idea of an offensively-charged lineup, but they should have the requisite defense to hold down the Sun Devils.
