After sweeping last week's three-game series against two-time defending national champion Oregon State, the Trojan Baseball team (27-26, 10-11) needs to close out their regular season with convincing wins at Washington State this weekend, in order to gain an outside chance for an NCAA tournament berth. "The Trojans can use their strength-of-schedule as an arguing tool as Boyd's World.com credits USC with the fourth-toughest schedule in the nation." Fred Davis apologized for missing his last day of mini-camp before a Redskins press conference saying "It felt like I was about to go to the principal's office or something." USC is planning to tell the NCAA it was unaware of any improper exchange of money/gifts between promoter Rodney Guillory and Trojan basketball star OJ Mayo. In addition "USC will emphasize to the NCAA that it had banned Guillory from receiving tickets to USC games in order to avoid any accusations of impropriety involving Mayo." The USC women are "keeping it querque" taking an early 5-stroke lead in the NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championships in Albuquerque, N.M. And they're right on top of #2 UCLA...where they belong.
