OKLAHOMA: Last season: 11-20
Who's gone: G Jordan Woodard. He was the team's leading scorer with 14.6 points per game in an injury-shortened senior campaign.
Who's back: G Kameron McGusty. He was the team's No. 2 scorer last season as a freshman; G Rashard Odomes, who averaged 10.1 points last season as a sophomore; F Khristian Doolittle, who was one of Oklahoma's best players in league play but is suspended for the fall semester; C Khadeem Lattin, a senior holdover from the team that reached the Final Four two years ago.
Who's new: G Trae Young. A McDonald's All-American who opted to stay in his hometown of Norman. He averaged 42.6 points per game as a senior at Norman North High School; F Brady Manek, who was a standout during Oklahoma's foreign tour this summer; C Hannes Polla, a freshman from Finland.
The Skinny: Oklahoma reached the Final Four two years ago with Buddy Hield, then rebuilt with young, talented players last season. The players who scraped and clawed through the Big 12 last season now have an elite point guard in Young to tie it all together. The Sooners should be exciting to watch and much improved. A return to the NCAA Tournament is a legitimate goal.
USC: Last season: 26-10.
Who's gone: F Charles Buggs.
Who's back: F Bennie Boatwright. The junior was dominant after returning from a knee injury that cost him 17 games last season, averaging 15.1 points and 4.5 rebounds. G Jordan McLaughlin. He could break the school's career assists mark after finishing third in Pac-12 last year. F Chimezie Metu. Had a breakout sophomore year, averaging 14.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks. G Elijah Stewart. Had 23 games in double figures last year. G Shaqquan Aaron. The junior started 20 games last season, averaging 7.6 points. He had a career-high 23 in a home win over rival UCLA.
Who's new: G Charles O'Bannon Jr. The highly touted recruit from Las Vegas is the son of the former UCLA star who led the Bruins to the 1995 national championship. G-F Jordan Usher. He can help the team on offense and defense. F Victor Uyaelunmo helped lead his Miami high school to the Florida state title.
The Skinny: The Trojans have their top eight scorers back, making them a title threat to traditional Pac-12 powers Arizona and UCLA. Boatwright, Metu and Stewart all withdrew their names from the NBA draft to stay in school. The Trojans' 26 wins last season were a school record and they have serious potential to make a deep run in the NCAA Tournament, where they last appeared in the Sweet 16 in 2007. There's a cloud over the program, however, with associate head coach Tony Bland on administrative leave after being accused of accepting $13,000 to help steer two players to certain business representatives. USC is conducting an internal investigation.
Oklahoma embraces marquee matchup with No. 25 USC

LOS ANGELES -- Since it opened in 1999, Staples Center has hosted countless great basketball games, a legacy not lost on the participants of Friday's 2017 Basketball Hall of Fame Classic matchup between No. 25 USC and Oklahoma.

"That's a legendary place to play. I've only seen the outside and all the statues," Oklahoma freshman Trae Young said following the Sooners' 97-85 win over UTSA on Dec. 4. Young referred to the monuments to such Los Angeles Lakers legends as Shaquille O'Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson that stand outside the venue.

"It's crazy because I'm still a freshman and getting to do all this so it's going to be fun. I can't wait for it."

On the same floor Kobe Bryant scored 60-plus points on four occasions, the ballyhooed first-year phenom Young leads Oklahoma (6-1) into a potentially pivotal matchup.

Young comes in leading the nation in scoring at 28.7 points per game, and third in assists with 8.7 per game. The Basketball Hall of Fame Classic is a premier platform for one of the nation's most impressive players early in the season.

Oklahoma is making a trek of about 1,400 miles for Friday's contest -- roughly 1,397 more than USC, which sits just south of Staples Center. The Sooners' ultimate goal on this trip is not to take in the sights of a "legendary" venue, but rather to extend the woes of a Trojans team that recently fell out of the Top 10.

USC (4-2) dropped its second straight game on Dec. 2, losing at SMU, 72-55. That unfolded quite similarly to the Trojans' Nov. 26 loss to Texas A&M, as coach Andy Enfield explained to reporters postgame.

"We had trouble making shots again in the second half," he said.

The Trojans shot just 8-of-22 from the floor after halftime, and a three-point Trojans' lead at intermission quickly became a double-digit SMU advantage. Against Texas A&M, USC went ice cold from the floor after forcing a 42-42 tie, surrendering a 19-3 run that was essentially the difference in the final result.

Oklahoma comes in allowing opponents to connect on 38.8 percent of 3-point attempts, ranking 292nd in the nation. That could be a difference for USC this time around, after two games in which the Trojans failed to make on 30 percent of their attempts.

Meanwhile, UTSA was the fourth opponent to score at least 80 points against the Sooners in seven games this season. Friday's game may well provide the catalyst USC needs to reinvigorate its offense -- but the Trojans may also have to keep up with the torrent pace at which Oklahoma is playing.

"They're very skilled, very talented," Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger said of USC. "Their inside guys are very talented. They've got a ton of guys who are very good."

Jump-starting its offense begins with Chimezie Metu and Bennie Boatwright finding their groove. Metu went just 5 of 14 from the floor against Texas A&M. He was better against SMU -- 4-of-7 -- but Boatwright is just 6-of-22 over the past two games.

USC will have a size advantage over Oklahoma, but the Sooners' backcourt of Young and Christian James promises to test the Trojans' perimeter defense.
