    The USC Trojans will welcome longtime rival UCLA to the Galen Center on Thursday night in hopes of sweeping the season series.

    The Trojans (17-5, 6-3 Pac-12) are back in a groove having won two straight at home against Washington State and Washington. USC dominated the first half and took an 11-point lead into the half. Washington fought back in the second half and actually outscored the Trojans, 55-54, but it couldn’t overcome the deficit as USC captured the 98-88 win. The Trojans held the edge on the boards, 42-36, and were sent to the foul line 37 times, where they connected on 32 attempts (86.5 percent). Nikola Jovanovic led all scorers with a season-high 28 points, and Jordan McLaughlin joined him in the 20-plus-point club with 21 points on the night.

    The Bruins (13-9, 4-5 Pac-12) have lost three of their last five, but their most recent game resulted in a victory as they drubbed the Washington State Cougars, 83-50, last Saturday. Washington State led early, but UCLA quickly took back the lead and never gave it back, keeping its foot on the pedal to capture a 33-point win. The keys for the Bruins were forcing turnovers (18 for the Cougars) and converting from the stripe, where UCLA hit 85.7 percent on the night (24-of-28). Isaac Hamilton led all scorers with 22 points, while Bryce Alford (12), Tony Parker (11), Aaron Holiday (10) and Thomas Welsh (10) all finished behind him in double figures.

    The Trojans and Bruins will renew their crosstown rivalry for the 244th time on Thursday, as UCLA holds a 138-105 all-time edge. USC will be looking to sweep UCLA for the first time since 2010.

    Prediction

    The Bruins have disappointed during their inconsistent season thus far, and being swept by USC would be the cherry on top of an off year. Unfortunately for UCLA, the Trojans have been too good at home this season and are off to their best start since the 1991-92 season. Look for USC’s balanced, inside-out offense to dominate the Bruins. The Trojans will vary the defensive looks for Bryce Alford and Isaac Hamilton to slow them down. UCLA has surprised before, but USC will get its first sweep of its hated rival since 2010. Book it.


    Game Notes

    • USC is currently 13-0 at home this season, its most consecutive home wins to start a season since it went a perfect 13-0 at home in 1943.
    • UCLA is the only Pac-12 team to have at least two scorers in the conference’s top 10 (Bryce Alford at 17.0 ppg and Isaac Hamilton at 16.6 ppg).
    • USC has made 182 three-point baskets this season, tops among Pac-12 teams through games of Jan. 30. The Trojans have finished 11th or 12th among Pac-12 teams in three-pointers made the last four seasons.
