The USC Trojans and the Cal State Fullerton Titans face off on Tuesday Night in college basketball action.
The USC Trojans dropped their season opening game to Utah but since then they have bounced back with two wins. The Pac-12 looks to be tough this year and when all is said and done South Cal should play one of the tougher schedules in the nation. Byron Wesley leads the Trojans averaging 20.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game. Omar Oraby is averaging 13.3 points and 7.3 rebounds, J.T. Terrell averages 10 points and 3.0 rebounds, and Julian Jacobs averages 5.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 4.3 assists. USC averages 75.7 points per game shooting 46.1 percent from the floor, 25 percent from beyond the three-point arc, and 61.5 percent from the free throw line.

The Cal State Fullerton Titans started the season with a win but followed it up with a loss to Seattle in their next game. With just nine teams in the Big West it should be wide open but CS Fullerton will need to play better if they hope to get into the picture. Alex Harris leads the Titans averaging 17 points and 3.5 rebounds per game. Michael Williams averages 15.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 2.5 steals per game, Marquis Horne averages 13.5 points and 4.5 rebounds, and Jared Brandon averages 9.5 points and 5.0 rebounds. CSF averages 80.3 points per game while shooting 50.6 percent from the floor, 42.6 percent from beyond the three-point arc, and 75.5 percent from the free throw line. Cal State Fullerton has what looks to be a tough one against Marquette in nine days.
USC is 4-1 against the spread against the Big West, 105 against the spread in their last six non-conference games, and 10-25-1 against the spread in their last 36 home games. Cal State Fullerton is 4-0 against the spread against the Big 12, 11-5-1 against the spread in their last 17 road games, and 1-4-1 against the spread following a win.
This line opened at 10 which is absurd and even at 7.5 where it is now it is still too big in a game Cal State Fullerton could win outright.
