If Washington was looking for an opponent to fatten its shooting percentage against, USC filled the bill nicely Thursday. Before the game, the Huskies were shooting 48.9%, largely because of 7-foot center Todd MacCulloch, who gets a lot of dunks and layups. But Washington shot 54.1% against USC and the longer the shot, the better. The Huskies made 14 of 22 three-point shots, a staggering 63.6%. The 14 three-pointers set a school record.

USC's basketball team should be easy to defense this season. If opponents can shut down Harold Miner, they'll have a good chance of beating the Trojans. After losing forward Ronnie Coleman, the all-time leading scorer in USC history, and guard Robert Pack from last season's team, the Trojans may be a one-man team this season.

The quest has been for an identity for the USC basketball team. Harold Miner already had his. Against Cal State Sacramento on Saturday and St. Louis on Monday, Trojan Coach George Raveling held Miner out for extended periods to see what would happen. Wednesday, in a 77-60 victory over Gonzaga before 3,251 at Spokane Coliseum, the strategy bore fruit. Miner was held to six points--one in the second half--and made only two of 13 shots.

Freshman James Forrest made a lunging three-point shot at the buzzer Saturday as Georgia Tech stunned USC, 79-78, to advance to the NCAA Midwest Regional semifinals. Rodney Chatman's jumper with three seconds left had given USC a 78-76 lead. Tech inbounded the ball to Jon Barry and he lost his dribble at midcourt, but the ball went off USC with eight-tenths of a second left.

Rodney Chatman, who could have played football at Notre Dame, instead chose to play basketball at USC, and for that the Trojans are thankful. Chatman, USC's top reserve, scored a career-high 15 points as the Trojans routed Oregon, 85-56, before 3,137 at the Sports Arena Saturday. It was USC's most lopsided victory ever over the Ducks. Chatman was one of the best high school football players in Florida.

USC made only 37% of its field-goal attempts, 52% of its free throws and was outrebounded by Stanford, 53-33. And the 15th-ranked Trojans won, 73-72, Saturday at the Sports Arena. Harold Miner's driving layup with 24 seconds remaining in overtime broke a tie. His two free throws with four seconds left made it 73-69 and clinched the Pacific 10 Conference victory for the Trojans (19-4, 11-2), who overcame an eight-point deficit in the final 1 1/2 minutes of regulation.

USC Coach George Raveling sarcastically thanked fate after the Trojans overcame a five-point deficit in the final 41 seconds and defeated Cal, 85-83, before 6,578 at Harmon Arena on Saturday. "We were lucky," Raveling said after Harold Miner made two free throws with eight seconds to play to lift the Trojans (13-3, 5-1) to their fifth consecutive victory. "I'd like to sit here and tell you it was some great coaching," Raveling said.
