Hours after the USC Women’s Basketball team climbed up two spots in the AP Women’s Basketball Top 25, the Trojans (3-0) jumped all over Seton Hall in the night cap of the Baha Mar Pink Flamingo Championship in Nassau, Bahamas on Nov. 20.
JuJu Watkins and Rayah Marshall led the way with 15 points a piece for USC, who went on a 14-0 run in the first quarter to take a commanding lead it never lost. The Trojans led by as many as 20 in the second half before Seton Hall was able to cut the lead to 10 points in final minute.
No. 8 USC, who along with No. 15 Ohio State, is one of two ranked team in the Bahamas this week. Ironically, it’s USC’s win over the then-ranked Buckeyes to start that season that has propelled the Trojans in the rankings.
While neither USC or No. 2 UCLA are playing in Los Angeles this week – the Bruins will play UConn in at Cayman Islands Classic on Friday, Nov. 24 – L.A. and the Pac-12 are well-represented in the top 25. No.3 Colorado, No. 4 Stanford and No. 10 Utah give the conference, in what is likely the final year of what most fans know of the Pac-12, five teams in the top 10.
USC looked the part against Seton Hall. Shooting 44 % from the field and out-rebounding Seton Hall 39 to 28.
