Every day during the summer, campus workers gathered in the USC North gym for basketball. On one hot June afternoon, however, the game was postponed because a broken rim hung from the fiberglass backboard by a single bolt. Like detectives, the lunch-hour players tried to figure out who had so thoroughly disrupted their daily workout. Had it been Shaquille O'Neal, filming a commercial? Could it have been Daryl Dawkins making a comeback? Maybe a displaced football player just showing off?

USC waited more than 11 minutes before trying a three-point shot Monday night against Gonzaga at the Sports Arena, and it wasn't until the second half that the Trojans really made use of their favorite weapon. After trailing the West Coast Conference preseason favorite by 10 points in the first half, the Trojans rode the long-range shot and a tight defense to a 77-59 victory before 1,438. Dating to last season, it was the Trojans' 11th home-game victory in a row and their 20th in the last 21.

After a fast start in which they scored 22 points in less than eight minutes, the Trojans went back to their sloppy ways.

Ron Coleman made three free throws in the final 19 seconds Sunday to give Lamar an 80-78 victory over USC. The sophomore guard led Lamar (3-1) with 23 points. The Trojans built a 43-40 halftime lead by connecting on 17 of 33 shots from the floor, 52% compared to Lamar's 43% shooting. But Lamar's shooting improved slightly after intermission as the Cardinals made 46% of their shots in the second half. More importantly, the Cardinals became more selective in their shots.
