USC guard Byron Wesley will play this week, Coach Andy Enfield said Tuesday. Wesley, the Trojans' leading scorer, was suspended for USC's games at Stanford and California last week for violating an unspecified team rule. He will be in the lineup against Oregon State on Thursday and Oregon on Saturday. “Byron has another whole year here and he needs to understand, he needs to be a leader,” Enfield said. “We're doing our part as a coaching staff to help him understand that.” Wesley averages 17.6 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.

USC Coach Andy Enfield praises Byron Wesley after nearly every game. The 6-foot-5 junior guard leads the Trojans with 17.6 points and 8.0 rebounds per game. Omar Oraby , the 7-2 center, says it is a joy to watch Wesley practice. "He is so fundamentally sound," Oraby said. "Just to pay attention to everything he's done is a good way to get better at the game. " Enfield said he's impressed with Wesley because Wesley never tries to do the fancy things. "He does the fundamentally sound thing," Enfield said.

There was a typical start, and the usual finish, to a USC basketball game at the Galen Center earlier this month. Trojans guard Byron Wesley wasted little time doing what he does best: driving hard through the defense toward the basket. After being fouled, he sank two free throws to boost USC into an early lead. By the end, Wesley had again led the Trojans in scoring, this time with 20 points against Utah. Yet the result was all too familiar - another loss in a Pac-12 Conference game.

Pe'Shon Howard scored 13 and Julian Jacobs added 11 for the Trojans (10-16, 1-12), who have lost seven straight games under first-year Coach Andy Enfield.

AT DAYTON 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.

If atmosphere counts, if having fans in seats, fans who make noise, who clap or boo or even just go buy a hot dog, if any of that matters, then USC had no chance Sunday at Galen Center against Cal State Bakersfield. But if it is the team that should provide the atmosphere, if it is the team that is supposed to make the fans clap or boo or stand and shout, then USC also should have had no chance against Bakersfield. The Trojans, coming off their two best victories of the season, against Xavier and Boston College, played with the energy of Santa Claus after he traveled around the world and dropped off his last gift.

LAS VEGAS -- Andy Enfield successfully guided Florida Gulf Coast's transition into being a NCAA Division I basketball team. Now he can try the same thing with USC. Enfield and Florida Gulf Coast were the feel-good story in the NCAA tournament a year ago. The Eagles, with a “Dunk City” nickname, upset second-seeded Georgetown and seventh-seeded San Diego State. It was a spotlight dance that had just about anyone with a coaching vacancy wooing Enfield. But his first season at USC ended Tuesday with far less fanfare.

Southern California got some rain, but the drought continued for USC's basketball team as the Trojans dropped their ninth consecutive game Thursday night at the Galen Center, 76-66, against Oregon State. The Trojans made a second-half push, going on a 14-2 run late in the game to cut their deficit to 70-64 with a minute left. But the Trojans (10-18, 1-14 in Pac-12 Conference play) could not overcome a 37.3% shooting percentage and saw the Beavers improve to 15-12, 7-8. Oregon State led the entire game, starting with a 6-0 run before the Trojans' leading scorer, junior guard Byron Wesley, got USC on the board with a jump shot.

Byron Wesley had a career-high 31 points. He had nine rebounds. He seemed to be everywhere doing everything for USC, but it was a clever pass from point guard Pe'Shon Howard to center Omar Oraby that was the winner. Oraby scored a layup off that pass with 54 seconds left that gave USC a lead finally and the Trojans (2-1) hung on and beat Northern Arizona, 67-63, Friday night at the Galen Center. There was no real explanation for this USC basketball win though. The Trojans were two of 12 from three-point range.

More notable than USC's 73-57 beating of West Alabama on Thursday night at the Galen Center was an announcement before the game. J.T. Terrell, who had led the Trojans with 20 points in their opening loss to Utah State and who led USC last year in Pac-12 Conference scoring, is ineligible for the rest of the fall semester because of academic reasons. USC Coach Andy Enfield said it's possible Terrell, a senior guard, could regain his eligibility as soon as the Long Beach State game Dec. 19, depending on when first-semester grades are posted.

It was more of the same for USC's basketball team Sunday night in what has become a season of frustration for the Trojans. With five players scoring in double digits, Colorado defeated USC, 83-74, at the Galen Center. The Trojans have lost a season-high six consecutive games and 11 of their last 12. The latest loss dropped USC's record to 10-15 overall and 1-11 in Pac-12 Conference play, leaving the Trojans last in the conference standings. "It is frustrating for all of us," USC Coach Andy Enfield said.
