When: 11 a.m. PST.

On the air: Radio: 710.

Records: USC 7-4, Dayton 9-2.

Update: Despite Coach Andy Enfield's complaints about the Trojans' rebounding deficits, USC ranks 36th nationally in rebounding at 40.2 per game. Leading scorer Byron Wesley, who did not start in USC's 72-71 loss to Long Beach State, was on the bench at the start because he missed the team bus, according to people with knowledge of the situation who were not authorized to speak publicly about it. Enfield would only say that Wesley broke a team rule. Wesley leads the Trojans in scoring (15.9) and rebounding (6.9). The Flyers are ranked No. 23 in the most recent RPI, the computer program that is key to picking at-large NCAA tournament teams. Guard Jordan Sibert leads the Flyers in scoring at 13.2 points per game. Dayton's losses were to then-No. 17 Baylor and Illinois State.
