USC lost its second point guard in three months when junior Quincy Wilder announced Wednesday he plans to transfer.
Wilder, at home in Puyallup, Wash., for spring break, said he was unhappy with his inconsistent playing time this season.
"Some games the minutes would be there, other games they wouldn't," he said. "You're out there worrying about whether you're going to be taken back out of the game."
His departure leaves USC with only freshman Brandon Granville at the point and puts greater pressure on Coach Henry Bibby to recruit another ballhandler.
Less than a year ago, Wilder transferred from Highline Community College in Des Moines, Wash., arriving at USC with teammate Brian Scalabrine and coach Joe Callero. Recruited as a scorer, he switched positions after sophomore Kevin Augustine left the team in December.
