Overall Game Analysis
UCSB hung around and played hard in this one. They were great at time with a lot of ball movement, but then would fall into spurts of rushing bad shots. They needed to be move active on defense in the paint - they gave up way too many back door plays.

solid game. Played very short shifts, but was a presence when in.

Feisty, but too many bad shots in this one. Committed too often on penetration to only throw it away on a dish.

Comments On Offense
they did not test USC inside. They were getting good penetration at times, but then would dish and force some bad shots.
