When the crosstown rivals USC Trojans meet the UCLA Bruins in today’s college basketball game, it will be the Bruins who will be defending an eight game win streak and a chance to win the PAC-12 Conference. However, the Trojans frontcourt will be the deciding factor in today’s matchup. Freshman Onyeka Okongwu should be a top-10 selection in June’s NBA draft. Senior Nick Rakocevic has five double-digit rebound performances in his last seven games. The Trojans will pound the offensive glass with relentless determination, flummoxing the Bruins in their fast break attempts. Both teams are on the bubble as far as the NCAA Tournament. The Bruins are currently 19-11, while the Trojans are 21-9. This game could go a long way in determining who will make the tournament.
