The USC Trojans became the latest First Four team to reach the Round of 32, making them a perfect 7-of-7 since it was introduced. It was also the biggest upset of the tournament so far, with the Trojans as 7.5-point underdogs to the SMU Mustangs.
The Trojans came back from a 12-point deficit, and were down as many as nine points in the second half. A big shot and good defense in the final seconds secured their 66-65 victory.
More on the matchup: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers can play spoiler again, as Greg Schiano’s squad handed the Carolina two losses in 2012 during a season where the Panthers were thought to be a playoff team. They last met in Carolina on 11/18, when Cam Newton and Josh Freeman threw for a combined 500 yards in an overtime win for the Buccaneers. Pressure will be on Mike Glennon to keep the Buccaneers’ offense afloat without running back Doug Martin, who is expected to miss Thursday’s game with a shoulder injury. Glennon is coming off his best game, throwing for 256 yards and two touchdowns against the Atlanta Falcons.
Freshman De¡¯Anthony Melton has also been a key contributor. He¡¯s not the most prominent scorer by any means, but has been good for the Trojans since taking over a starting role in late December. Chimezie Metu has been great in his sophomore season, averaging 14.5 points and 7.9 rebounds per game.
A comeback victory and having overcome so much during the season makes for a great celebration like this one. The Trojans certainly earned it.
Alex Tanguay Authentic Jersey After the game, a dismayed Bucknell locker room got a surprise visitor: Villanova¡¯s Jay Wright. Wright graduated from Bucknell and played for the Bison from 1979-1983. He is perhaps the most accomplished alumnus in the history of the athletic department.
