The careers of Drew Peterson and Boogie Ellis in a Trojans uniform have come to an end, and this team will once again see some drastic changes after losing the Mobley brothers over the past couple of seasons.
While the offensive performance wasn’t pretty for USC, there are two players that should give Andy Enfield hope going into the summer: Kijani Wright and Josh Morgan.
With Vincent Iwuchukwu missing the game with an injury, Morgan stepped up and led the team in scoring with 14 points on 7-9 from the field and 5 rebounds.
The junior forward should be an integral part of USC’s team next season, assuming he returns to Southern California for another year.
Kijani Wright played sparingly in this game against the Spartans, finishing with just 1 point with a rebound, assist, and block. However, Wright earned more playing time toward the end of the season, and the freshman forward from Los Angeles will definitely see a massive increase in usage with Peterson and Ellis leaving this offseason.
Yes, it’s another early exit for Enfield and USC, but the future remains bright in Trojans Land.
