Trojans’ story is not yet complete

Eric He

When the Trojans take the floor at the Galen Center on Saturday afternoon for their final regular season game against the Oregon Ducks, they will already have had achievements this year that couldn’t have been imagined back in early November. For a team that hadn’t had a winning record in four seasons and hadn’t made […]

Nikias is making mark on athletics

As Athletic Director Pat Haden prepares to retire in June, a vacancy opens for one of the country’s most renowned posts in college sports. A national search firm has been employed and an advisory committee has been assembled in order to help find the University’s next head of athletics, but ultimately, President C. L. Max […]

Success comes in the spring

Football season is nowhere to be found and men’s basketball has their final two home games this week before heading to Las Vegas for the Pac-12 tournament and hopefully a more fruitful postseason than some in recent memory. So as USC sports fans it may seem like the dog days where nothing exciting is going […]

Trojan brand on the up and up

As a whole, the USC athletics department is flourishing. Great teams, good coaching hires and a constant flow of national titles all do well to strengthen the overall athletic brand. Couple that with an incredible state-of-the-art facility in the McKay Center and the natural attraction of Los Angeles, it is easy to see why USC […]

On Wednesday, Forbes ran a story titled “The American Sports Fan at Ten,” in which Henry, a 10-year-old sports fanatic, talks about how his experience following sports. It got me thinking back to my childhood, how I fell in love with sports and how much the sports landscape has changed since I was in grade […]

Present are the trophies won by the Trojans greats Mike Garrett, Charles […]

Women’s lacrosse is flourishing

A year ago, just being there was special enough. Making it to the next step in the journey, the NCAA tournament, was enough. Winning a first-round playoff game and making it to a second-round matchup against powerhouse Duke was icing on the cake. The expectation wasn’t to come away with a win, but merely some program […]

Trojans outpoised by Utah

Josh Cohen

As Utah applied the finishing touches to an 80-69 victory over USC at the Galen Center on Sunday afternoon, a unique feeling likely kicked in for many Trojan fans. It was not the worst feeling in the world, but it was a distinct one. It was the unmistakable feeling of falling to a team that […]

Trojans proving that they belong

What a difference one year makes. On Jan. 29, 2015, the USC men’s basketball team took on the Colorado Buffaloes in a three-overtime thriller that unfortunately ended in a loss. Up until the Arizona epic earlier this season, it was the most exciting game I had seen the Trojans play. In that game, current redshirt […]

Racism appears in sports again

Eric He

Last weekend, I was taking a Lyft back to campus when small talk with my driver led to reactions to the Super Bowl. I told him I was disappointed that the Carolina Panthers lost because I like Cam Newton. My driver, a middle-aged white man, was incredulous. “Why?” he asked. “I’ve never seen a more […]
