This Time, Trojans Hope to Keep Lid on Washington State's Quinnett

USC Coach George Raveling hopes the Trojans can do a better job of defending against Washington State forward Brian Quinnett in tonight's game against the Cougars in the Sports Arena.

Quinnett, a 6-foot 9-inch senior, scored 44 points against USC in a 72-65 Cougar victory last month at Pullman, Wash.

"We're just going to try not to let him get 44 points this time," Raveling said. "In Pullman, we let him start thinking he was Superman. He went into a phone booth and changed and he came out and killed us."

Washington State is 8-15 overall and 3-11 in the Pacific 10 Conference. USC is 8-18 and 1-13.

Trojan Notes

Turi Carter, USC freshman forward, will miss the rest of the season with a toe injury. "The trainer said he has turf toe," Coach George Raveling said. "Don't ask me how you get a turf toe (which results from playing on artificial turf) on a basketball court." . . . Ronnie Coleman, USC sophomore forward, has averaged 19.3 points in his last eight games. . . . Tonight's game begins at 8. The USC women's team will play Washington at 5:45 p.m.
