While the Trojans defeated Oregon in a bubble game on Thursday night, the win might have come at a steep cost, as star forward Bennie Boatwright injured his knee in the second half. In terms of USC’s profile, thanks to a down Pac-12, the Trojans’ two best wins are still the two they claimed over New Mexico State and Middle Tennessee in the Diamond Head Classic over Christmas week, giving Andy Enfield’s club a poor record of 2-5 in Group 1 games.
