No. 24 University of Southern California will be hoping to breeze past St. Joseph’s on Thursday night in this semifinal matchup in the Wooden Legacy tournament.

The University of Southern California Trojans are led in scoring by Boogie Ellis who is averaging 17 points per game to go with 4 rebounds and 4 assists.

The Saint Joseph's Hawks are coming off of a loss to Old Dominion in their last game. Sophomore Jordan Hall scored a career-high 24 points and added a team-high 10 rebounds and five assists versus Monmouth.

Taylor Funk is averaging 18.5 points and 6 rebounds a game to lead the Saint Joseph’s Hawks. Jordan Hall averages a balanced stat line of 15.5 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists per contest. Erik Reynolds II and Ejike Obinna both average 10 for the St. Joe's Hawks. 

The Hawks are averaging 74.8 points per contest and are shooting 43.3% from the field. The Hawks are giving up 73 points a game which has them barely winning their matchups.

The St. Joe's Hawks are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600 and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The USC Trojans are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 Thursday games.

I am not rushing to bet on this one, but the USC Trojans are clearly the better team in this one. Their offensive firepower should allow them to cover the spread in this one.
