    You can bet that Galen Center will be buzzing on Thursday as USC plays host to Colorado in a Pac 12 clash of two evenly matched teams. Tip-off will be at 10:30 EST.
    Colorado is in 3rd place in the conference, USC is in 12th place. The Buffaloes check in at 13-6 overall including 5-2 in the Pac 12. Meanwhile, the Trojans have a record of 5-15 and are 0-7 in the conference. The RPI also gives the Buffaloes the advantage, ranking them at #64 and the Trojans at #182. Additionally, there is a momentum story, where Colorado is looking to capitalize on USC having lost its last eight games in a row.
    Colorado has a statistical edge over USC in two categories. The Buffaloes boast an advantage in rebounding, 37 per game to 28 per game. Colorado also leads in scoring, 69 pts/game to 54 pts/game.StatSmack! Colorado is better than USC
