Freshman guard Jeff Trepagnier, who has impressed coaches with several acrobatic dunks and plays this season, will move to his third position, against Ohio State on Saturday. Trepagnier, a 6-foot-4 standout from Compton High who has played shooting guard and small forward, will play power forward against the Buckeyes, USC Coach Henry Bibby said. In USC's last game, against UNLV, Trepagnier had 11 points, six rebounds and four blocks.

Institutional control, or just common sense? Let's retreat a few years, USC already has the Reggie Bush investigation on the NCAA table, and so you would think Athletic Director Mike Garrett might occasionally visit with basketball coach Tim Floyd . And maybe it goes something like this: Garrett: "Tim, how are you doing?" Floyd: "Who are you?" Garrett: "Heisman Trophy winner. Scored 30 TDs. Oh, almost forgot, school's athletic director, too, and so I better ask how recruiting is going."

Sophomore forward Jeff Trepagnier got the first double-double of his career Wednesday night with a game-high 18 points and a team-high 11 rebounds against Loyola Marymount. Those statistics represented a significant improvement for a player averaging 12 points and four rebounds this season. But the biggest news of the night was his eight steals, which broke a school record set by Cameron Murray against Cal State Sacramento in 1995. "I didn't have any idea [about the record]," Trepagnier said.

Their college careers complete, now USC's Brian Scalabrine and Jeff Trepagnier and UCLA's Earl Watson are anticipating one of the biggest events of their lives--Wednesday's NBA draft. But they and other area draft-eligible players also face one of their biggest challenges--making an impact in the NBA. UCLA has had 62 players and USC 26 who have spent at last one season in the NBA.

Still no paperwork from the NCAA clearing Jeff Trepagnier. Still no Jeff Trepagnier on the basketball court this season. By now the Trojans should be getting worried. USC officials were expecting to have Trepagnier back for Saturday's game against Long Beach State. He missed the first three games because of a stress facture in his left foot and has missed the eight others while under investigation for possible violations during a trip to Las Vegas last fall.

Jeff Trepagnier struggled again last week and was replaced for long stretches against Stanford and California. Against Cal, Trepagnier spent nearly the entire second half on the bench while Desmon Farmer provided the spark that helped the Trojans win. But Coach Henry Bibby said there would be no flip-flopping Trepagnier and Farmer in the starting lineup this week against Washington and Washington State. "Jeff is my starter," Bibby said. "He has deserved that over the years of playing here.

Jeff Trepagnier has put his problems with the NCAA aside, but his season is still not trouble free. The stress fracture in his left foot that caused Trepagnier to miss the first three games of the season has not healed completely. And Trepagnier aggravated that injury when he turned his right ankle in Thursday's game against Washington State. Coach Henry Bibby said Trepagnier may need surgery after the season.

If there was anything for USC to be encouraged about after Wednesday's 101-84 loss to UCLA, it was the season-high 18-point performance by freshman guard Jeff Trepagnier, one of four freshmen who were being counted on to produce this season but have struggled. Against UCLA, Trepagnier scored only two points in the first half but led a small Trojan rally after checking in with 16:11 left in the game.

Starting guard Jeff Trepagnier has recovered enough from the stress fracture in his left foot to play in the Trojans' opener Saturday against Bradley. "He'll test the leg in practice," Coach Henry Bibby said. "But he's shown no soreness in the last week-and-a half." Trepagnier, a senior, did not play in either of USC's two exhibition games. But he is coming off a solid junior season, in which he was the team's second leading scorer with a 15.9-point average and third-leading rebounder with 6.6.

Now the Trojans must wait by the telephone, hoping for a call and an invitation from National Invitation Tournament officials. Either way, Coach Henry Bibby says he is encouraged by the way his team won four of its final six Pacific 10 Conference games and by the improvement of newcomers Brian Scalabrine, Sam Clancy and Brandon Granville. "You are looking at so many guys on this team who came in here not knowing what to expect," Bibby said.

Jeff Trepagnier has caught the nation's attention with his gravity-defying brand of basketball. But Bibby says that Trepagnier's dunkfest in the first and second rounds did more to energize the Trojans than it did to demoralize the opposition. "We missed him tremendously this season [when Trepagnier was injured and suspended]," Bibby said. "He is one of our most important people. We played well without him but. . . . Now he is feeling what he can do, and his confidence made us a better team.

There were a handful of NCAA tournament sites where the selection committee could have sent USC that would have retraced the steps of Trojan Coach Henry Bibby's NBA career. There was New Orleans, where Bibby played with the Jazz. There was San Diego, where Bibby ended his playing days with the Clippers. As it turned out the Trojans went to Long Island, just an expressway and a tunnel away from where Bibby started his career with the New York Knicks in 1972.

Jeff Trepagnier has learned quickly. Give him that. Work the system, use it to your advantage. He has turned a situation that jeopardized his college eligibility into a reason to get married. And he appears ready to turn the high-pressure, high-visibility platform of the NCAA tournament into his personal showcase, a last-ditch opportunity to gain entry to the world of professional basketball.

Jeff Trepagnier is running out of time--and games. His senior season has been memorable for all the wrong reasons. A stress fracture in his left foot cost him the first three games of the season. Trepagnier then sat out eight more games under suspension while being investigated by the NCAA. He has been trying to fit into USC's season ever since. The results are mixed. Trepagnier has been helping out on defense, averaging five rebounds and contributing 11 blocked shots and 17 steals in 13 games.

In several games last season, Jeff Trepagnier was called upon to try to shut down the opponent's top scorer. Trepagnier will get a familiar assignment tonight. His mission: Keep Stanford's Casey Jacobsen from running wild against USC. Jacobsen isn't the only weapon the top-ranked Cardinal has, but he's where you start when figuring out how to beat Stanford. The 6-foot-6 sophomore is a candidate for Pacific 10 and national player-of-the-year honors. In averaging 17.

As promised, USC Coach Henry Bibby changed his starting lineup, replacing freshman guard Desmon Farmer with senior Jeff Trepagnier. Trepagnier made only one of six shots and scored six points, but he did grab a team-high eight rebounds in 37 minutes. "I'm still finding myself," he said. "Sam [Clancy] and Brandon [Granville] were doing well so I just played defense today."

Jeff Trepagnier will move into the starting lineup today against Arizona State, Coach Henry Bibby said. Bibby said Friday he had not yet decided whom Trepagnier will replace, but David Bluthenthal and Desmon Farmer are the likely candidates. Bluthenthal is having a good season, averaging 14.8 points and 7.8 rebounds. But Bibby was not happy that Bluthenthal had only three rebounds in 40 minutes Thursday against Arizona, and may want to send a message.
