USC aims to bounce back without Hackett

The USC Trojan basketball team will try to split this home series against the Arizona schools tonight as they take on the Arizona State Sun Devils. To do so, they will have to rebound from that tough 80-69 loss on Thursday to Arizona. Complicating matters further will be the absence of Daniel Hackett, whose presence was sorely missed in the loss to Arizona. The LA Times is reporting that Hackett is not expected to play today. The sophomore guard took a nasty fall in the opening minutes of Thursday's game, but his injury is believed to be "not serious." The diagnosis appears to be a "deep pelvis bruise," according to Hackett.

Arizona State comes into this game with a record of (14-4) overall and (4-4) in the Pac-10 after suffering an 84-51 beat down at Pauley on Thursday. We had a great college basketball atmosphere at the Galen Center on Thursday (just ask ESPN's Jay Bilas), so lets come out and support our guys again.

Fight On!
