As in college football, USC women’s basketball quickly remade itself in the transfer portal

Just like football.

USC, a football school, received national recognition on Sunday for its hardwood feat. The Trojan women’s basketball team inflicted Stanford’s first Pac-12 conference loss since January 2021. Stanford – still in first place in the Pac-12, still a juggernaut still expected to make it to the Final Four – couldn’t solve the problem of USC’s defense. . The women of Troy only allowed 10 free throws. They forced Stanford to take 3-pointers. The Cardinal only made 4 of 21. Stanford couldn’t recover enough missed shots to easily get layups and kickbacks near the rim. USC beat Stanford with great defensive play.

All three players who led the charge were transfers.

Destiny Littleton came to USC from South Carolina. Taylor Bigby came to the Trojans from Oregon. Okako Adika transferred to USC from TCU.

These three players only played 119 minutes. Bigby rested for only one minute. Littleton and Adika went to the wire, banning Stanford despite no rest (except for timeouts). That’s 119 minutes of elite defense, rebounding and basketball with few errors.

The transfer portal has changed USC women’s basketball in a short period of time, just like the transfer portal has changed USC football in a short period of time.

The Transfer Portal simplifies and accelerates large-scale change in collegiate sports.

Just like in addition to football.

USC women’s basketball is living proof of that.

List

The relationship between Mike Bohn and Lincoln Riley will be tested if the USC defense does not improve.
