Oklahoma makes their stand in the Big 12/Pac 10 Hardwood Series tonight against the USC Trojans. The Trojans are off to a 5-2 start causing them to lose their #18 pre-season ranking. They have dropped games against Seaton Hall and Missouri this season while beating the likes of UC Irvine, New Mexico State, UT Martin and San Francisco.

Southern Cal is led in scoring by guard Dwight Lewis who averages 16.6 points a game. Lewis is shooting .494 from the field and has made a team-high 10 treys on 28 attempts.

My son has a Jr. High basketball game that tips off at 6:00 as well. Hopefully I’ll be back for the second half but feel free to keep the game thread going in my absence. Post all your comments here before, during and after the ball game.
