Game of the Week

12/3: College Men’s Basketball: USC at UCSB The Gauchos (2-3) have the rare opportunity Thursday night to host a Pac-12 opponent after going 0-3 in road games against one of the power conferences of college sports. It’s also their only home game in December. Their defeat at Arizona State last Sunday was a bummer, as the Gauchos squandered a lead and lost on a last-second put-back, 70-68. Michael Bryson (18.8 points per game), John Green (12.8), and Gabe Vincent (10.8) have carried their scoring load. USC (5-2) is starting to make waves under third-year coach Andy Enfield, who came to Southern California after turning Florida Gulf Coast into “Dunk City.” The Trojans are averaging 84.6 points a game, with six players averaging in double figures. The two teams have not played each other since 2002, when UCSB beat the Trojans for the only time in 12 meetings. 7pm. The Thunderdome, UCSB. $11-$20. Call 893-UCSB (8272) or visit
