USC basketball has a new mascot ... named Traveler
USC has introduced a new mascot to hang with Tommy Trojan during basketball. His name … wait for it … is Traveler.
Yes, Traveler for USC basketball games. Apparently “Airball,” “Brick” and “Double Dribble” were taken.
The horse costume will be at men’s and women’s basketball games this season.
Some might also point out that USC having a mascot named for a violation is not the best PR move.
