Elijah Stewart isn’t big on predictions.
Informed USC was picked by the media to finish seventh in the Pac-12 Conference men’s basketball standings, the junior guard said the prognostication was essentially meaningless.
“Oh. You know, if people could tell the future, I feel like they should probably work for the government,” Stewart said Friday at Pac-12 media day. “That’s a very useful skill.”
Stewart might have a point. The Trojans were picked to finish 10th last season before climbing into a tie for sixth with Oregon State during a season that ended in the NCAA tournament.
