USC Women’s Volleyball and Basketball Shine Amid Conference Changes

USC Trojans women's teams excel as they prepare for new challenges in the MPSF league.

In recent developments beyond the realms of football and men’s basketball, the USC Trojans women’s sports teams have been making waves. The USC women’s beach volleyball team is gearing up for the 2025 season in a new seven-team league, the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF), following the crumbling of the Pac-12 conference. In 2024, the Trojans will bid farewell to the Pac-12 alongside California, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, and Washington, with Grand Canyon University joining them in the MPSF.

Key Takeaways:

  • USC women’s beach volleyball team will join the MPSF for the 2025 season after a final Pac-12 season in 2024.
  • The Trojans will be accompanied by other Pac-12 schools, including California, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, and Washington, as well as Grand Canyon University.
  • USC women’s non-beach volleyball club continues its impressive season with a 3-1 victory over Cal, maintaining an undefeated record.

On the volleyball court, the No. 24-ranked USC women’s non-beach volleyball club displayed their dominance by defeating Cal with a score of 3-1 on the 17th. This victory extends their undefeated streak for the season, with an impressive record of 18-9 (12-5 in the Pac-12). Skylar Mays, a 6’2″ senior outside hitter, was the star of the match, securing her eighth double-double of the year with 21 kills and 12 digs.

In the world of women’s basketball, the eighth-ranked USC Women of Troy, led by standout freshman guard JuJu Watkins, continued their winning streak in the 2023-24 NCAA season. USC emerged victorious against Seton Hall, maintaining their undefeated status early in the season.

Rayah Marshall, a 6’4″ junior center and 2023 Naismith Defensive Player of the Year semifinalist, made her presence felt with a 14-point, 14-rebound double-double. Watkins led the team with 15 points, contributing to USC’s 64-54 victory over Seton Hall on Monday night.

As USC’s women’s teams prepare for the challenges of the MPSF league and continue to excel in their respective sports, Trojan fans have plenty to look forward to in the coming seasons.
