    In this thread, we discuss all things USC.

    USC

    Projected Starters

    Jordan McLaughlin - Freshman PG will be expected to run Dunk City West.
    Katin Reinhardt - UNLV transfer has the talent, but no one is sure if he'll ever put it all together.
    Julian Jacobs - Athletic guard who is a perfect fit for Enfield's system.
    Malik Price-Martin - Freshman from Miami who Enfield knows well from his FGCU days.
    Nikola Jovanovic - Surprisingly athletic for a 6'10" guy but may get pushed around a bit.

    McLaughlin, Reinhardt and Jovanovic will start. That much I can pretty much guarantee. As for the other two spots, you're seeing my best guess there. They have lots of guards, so Dunk City West should be able to run a lot more this year than last, but they may also go with Strahinja Gavrilovic in the middle to join with Jovanovic and provide some serious size inside. Brendyn Taylor could also provide some defense for the Trojans provided that he has recovered from his knee injury. Fun fact - if you have a hard time pronouncing Gavrilovic's name, just call him "Luis". Apparently former coach Kevin O'Neill couldn't either, so he just started calling him Luis.

    USC won't win a ton this year, although they'll be better. But with a charismatic coach, Los Angeles / USC recruiting, and a fun style to play... they're going to be good soon. And entertaining to watch.

    What I don't know a lot about is the noobs. It's been thought that they've added a lot on the athleticism front and that's exactly what we should expect them to be doing from now until the ENDfield (get it?).
