Waiting for Dunk City … It's another slow night at the half-filled Galen Center, no lines at the gleaming concession stands, desolation on the wide concourses, the referee's whistle audible even in the men's restroom. The hearty few USC fans occasionally cheer, sing and even dance to the sort of energetic music and announcing that reminds one of a hot summer night in a desolate minor league ballpark. But, mostly, they just wait. They are waiting for fireworks promised with the arrival of new Coach Andy Enfield, who was hired last spring after winning two NCAA tournament games with unknown Florida Gulf Coast University.
