USC vs. Washington: And the winner is...

By Lara Boyko - March 03, 2007

USC, 81-77

The bubble has popped and USC is still standing. Hopefully the NCAA tournament selection committee paid attention tonight and agree that the Pac-10 should send five teams to the dance. If USC does make it into the NCAA tournament, Cinderella could be wearing cardinal and gold this year.

This emotionally charged game where neither team was ready to let up was fun for fans to watch, but as USC's coach Mark Trakh said "Terrible to coach."

Leading the way for USC were Chloe Kerr with 14 points and Shay Murphy with 14 points and her 11 rebounds were huge for the Women of Troy.

Just as ASU's coach put it "If you control the boards, you control the game," and with 42 rebounds from USC compared to 30 from Washington, I think it may be the quote of the day.

The Huskies were paced by Cameo Hicks with 18 points and the team's second best of five boards. While Breanne Watson led the Huskies on the boards with six rebounds.

Even though carrying this emotion into tomorrow's game will be a challenge, USC's coach Trakh plans on letting his players enjoy this win for tonight and the promise of another day in San Jose.

USC will face Stanford tomorrow at 4:30 pm. See you then!
