USC forward Jarvis Turner was awarded a fifth year of college eligibility for the upcoming basketball season after being granted a medical hardship by the NCAA. Turner's college career appeared over after suffering a fractured ankle midway through his senior season last year. He played in only seven of the Trojans' 30 games, appearing in only four games before fracturing his ankle Jan. 20 against Arizona State.

It's a good thing the Trojans don't resume Pacific 10 Conference play until next Thursday, because they want to savor their first victory in five years over rival UCLA. "To finally get this [10-game losing streak] off our backs is huge," said Jeff Trepagnier, whose career-high 26 points were integral to USC's 91-79 victory. "They walk around town and don't think anything of us, don't give us any respect. So now they have to look at us in different way."

The one thing Jarvis Turner wanted more than anything else in his senior season was to be injury free. "I really haven't played a whole year of college basketball," the 6-foot-8 swingman said. "My first year I was out eight to 10 weeks with a back injury. My sophomore year I broke my hand and missed another six to eight weeks. "I'm looking forward to a healthy year, and bringing some type of leadership role to the team as an older guy."

USC got some good news Saturday when 6-foot-8 swingman Jarvis Turner, who missed the last two games of the Maui Invitational because of a sore left foot, was able to dress for the Duke game. Coach Henry Bibby said an MRI exam revealed that Turner has a bone bruise. "He probably needs a week off," Bibby said. "We're not sure yet if we're going to play him against Santa Barbara on Wednesday, but he'll be ready after that." Turner scored two points and had a steal in 12 minutes Saturday.

Jarvis Turner is listed as a probable starter against St. Bonaventure tonight despite nursing a sore back through the start of the Trojans' nonconference schedule. The 6-foot-8, 230-pound forward has started all three games but has been receiving therapy for the injury. That might explain a slight dip in his numbers from last season, when he averaged 10.6 points and 5.3 rebounds. Turner, playing 16 minutes a game, is scoring seven points and grabbing three rebounds.
