USC has two extremely good players: 6'11" Metu, recruited by Harvard, who can shoot 3s', drive to the basket and slam dunk along with 6'1" senior PG who just tied Pac 12 record with 19 assists. Metu is probably the most talented player that they have faced this year. 2nd leading scorer, 6'10", missed last game and Tigers only slim hope is that he misses this game as they simply cannot handle height. Another top flight player is out -- FBI investigation. Other players are very talented although the sum of the parts is less than individual components.

Who guards Metu? -- Stephens with help or Much/Brennan -- depends on if 6'10" Boatwright plays. Bell will take on PG in all likelihood. Not a good match up as Tigers always have trouble with height/power as Henderson plays small. Middle Tennessee will be a much better test as they are more representative of IL teams.

One of these days, maybe tonight, the Tigers can lightening in a bottle against a very talented team but it will be very challenging to put it mildly. Tigers need to shoot very well to stay in the game.
