Update: February has not been kind to USC (19-8, 8-6 in the Pac-12 Conference). The Trojans have lost three of five games in the month, after going 6-3 in January. Still, the Trojans have built a cushion for their NCAA tournament chances. The first game of the road trip, against Stanford (13-12, 6-8) is a good opportunity for USC to put aside its road struggles. The Cardinal has a winning conference record at home, but not by much, at 4-3. Forward Rosco Allen leads the team with 15.6 points per game.
