News flash: USC is going to put a big guard on Boston College's 6-foot-1 star, Tyrese Rice. Rice shrugged his shoulders during Thursday's news conference at the Metrodome and all but said big deal.

By now, USC Coach Tim Floyd and his staff would like to think they know more about Boston College's basketball team than anyone this side of the Charles River.
