USC Trojans Soar to Victory Over Eastern Washington State Eagles Led by Boogie Ellis

Senior guard's standout performance propels USC to a resounding win

The USC Trojans rediscover their winning form with a dominant 106-78 victory over the Eastern Washington State Eagles, led by senior guard Boogie Ellis.

Key Takeaways:

In a much-needed turnaround, the USC Trojans delivered a commanding performance, triumphing over the Eastern Washington State Eagles with a resounding 106-78 victory. After a challenging defeat at the hands of the Oklahoma Sooners, the Trojans found their rhythm and secured a crucial win, largely thanks to the exceptional display of their senior guard, Boogie Ellis.

Ellis showcased his prowess on the court, delivering one of his standout performances of the season. He tied a season-high in points, contributing 28 to the scoreboard while shooting an impressive 69% from the field. Ellis displayed remarkable accuracy from beyond the arc, connecting on 80% of his three-point attempts. Additionally, he made valuable contributions with two rebounds, one assist, and two steals.

The Trojans established their dominance early in the game, building a substantial 44-22 lead in the first half, ultimately reaching a 22-point advantage. While Ellis undeniably stole the spotlight, his teammates also made significant contributions. Four other Trojans recorded double-digit scores, with Kobe Johnson adding 12 points, Isaiah Collier contributing 15, Kijani Wright tallying 12, and Vincent Iwuchukwu delivering 13 points.

This victory was undoubtedly a team effort, with Ellis leading the charge. Although USC currently finds itself outside the AP Top 25 rankings, there is ample opportunity for the team to regain its footing. The Trojans have a series of important matchups ahead, including a showdown with the 11th-ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs. A victory in this upcoming game could be the catalyst needed to propel USC back into the prestigious Top 25.

As fans eagerly await the Las Vegas Invitational, set to kick off this weekend, the Trojans have a chance to build on their recent success and establish themselves as a force to be reckoned with in collegiate basketball once again.
