When: 8. Where: Galen Center. On the air: Radio: 710. Records: Season opener. Record vs. opponent: USC leads all time, 4-1. Update: USC is surrounded by question marks. The only certainties are the Trojans will work hard on defense and guard Maurice Jones will be the No. 1 scoring option. The tallest player expected to be in Northridge's starting lineup is 6 feet 6, so expect USC's post players to be a main focus. Northridge, which returns two starters from a team that finished 14-18 last season, beat USC the last time they met, in 2005.

The $125-million arts center, which opened Saturday, could become the signature landmark of the 52-year-old campus, drawing world-class orchestras, productions and entertainers while enhancing the university's academic arts programs. Patrons attending the opening gala, however, passed near a far different symbol of the campus: bent and pockmarked remains of a parking structure that collapsed during the 1994 Northridge earthquake.
