Trojans can’t handle tough Ducks defense

first_imgThe cold streak continues for the USC men’s basketball team.Struggles · Senior guard Dwight Lewis only scored eight points against a surprisingly stingy Oregon defense while playing nearly the entire game. Lewis and the Trojans scored just 12 points in the second half on Thursday night at the Galen Center. – Geo Tu | Daily Trojan Mired by offensive ineptitude and missed opportunities of late, the Trojans (16-11, 8-7) brought their shooting woes home on Thursday, losing just their fourth game at the Galen Center this season to visiting Oregon 54-44.“We just couldn’t do the job tonight,” said USC coach Kevin O’Neill. “I thought we were low energy, and we just didn’t come out with any boost at all. We didn’t make shots. And when you have 18 turnovers, it’s hard to win.”Despite a 32-23 lead at the half, the Trojans were only able to muster 12 points in the second half while shooting just 24 percent from the field. Guard Tajuan Porter scored 16 for the Ducks (13-14, 5-10), but it was USC’s late-game offensive breakdown that proved to be the deciding factor.“It is frustrating,” O’Neill said. “I’m sure our players are frustrated too. They didn’t line up those wide-open shots to miss them.”Unlike later in the game, USC showed signs of dominance in the first half; the Trojans jumped out to an early 6-0 lead on two 3-pointers from senior guard Marcus Johnson and maintained control of the ball game for most of the early proceedings. USC led by as many as 12 in the half and entered the break nine points ahead.But the second half was where the wheels fell off for the Trojans, as they went on scoreless runs of nine and six minutes while the Ducks took the advantage. Guard LeKendric Longmire had 11 points and Porter had eight for Oregon, including a late 3-pointer that sealed the victory, in the second period.“We really failed to capitalize,” said USC senior guard Mike Gerrity. “We settled for outside shots. [Our] confidence started to lower. It was very frustrating.”Longmire contributed 13 points and four rebounds in total on the night, and Oregon guard Malcolm Armstead added seven points coming off the bench.If there is a silver lining to be found, it comes in the form of the Trojans defense. Despite their continued struggles on offense, the Trojans have maintained consistency on the opposite side of the ball throughout the season, and their defense now ranks fourth in the nation at 56.4 points allowed per game. Against Oregon, USC did not allow a point for the first 4:05 of the first half and held the Ducks under the Trojans’ season average.“It would be our hope to try and bounce back here,” O’Neill said. “It’s just a shame to play that poorly in the second half.“The Trojans will now face Oregon State on Saturday in their last home game of the year. The second-to-last-place Beavers enter the game at 12-15 and 6-9 in the Pac-10 but have already beat the Trojans once this season in Corvallis, Ore.last_img read more

Capital One Cup round-up: Man United humiliated as MK Dons seal huge victory

first_img MK Dons celebrate their 4-0 win over Man United 1 Louis van Gaal’s start to his reign as Manchester United manager went from bad to worse on a drizzly night in Buckinghamshire, as his side were knocked out of the Capital One Cup by League One side MK Dons.It was a humiliating evening for the Red Devils, who were never at the races as two goals from William Grigg and on-loan Arsenal forward Benik Afobe secured a 4-0 win to see the Dons safely into the third round.Van Gaal perhaps underestimated his lowly opponents by naming an under-strength starting line-up, with Johnny Evans, Javier Hernandez and Anderson their most senior players.It was United’s first appearance in the second round since they lost to York in 1995, and it was a similar scenario this time around as an inexperienced back-four were torn apart by the third tier outfit.A mistake from Evans on the edge of the box gifted Grigg his opener, the forward calmly stroking the ball home into an open goal, and he notched his brace after the break when he nudged a cross past David de Gea with his chest.United continued to struggle in the second-half half and their exit from the first competition of the season was confirmed when Afobe, who replaced Grigg with 20 minutes left, notched his first after just seconds on the pitch, later putting the shine on a historic victory for MK Dons with a brace of his own, taking advantage of a series of defensive blunders to smash past De Gea.Van Gaal is still searching for his first win as United boss.Three other Premier League sides also suffered second round shock exits, with West Ham losing to League One side Sheffield United on penalties following a 1-1 draw after extra-time.Burnley also lost 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday, while Leicester slumped to the same result at home to League Two Shrewsbury Town.West Brom, meanwhile, needed a penalty shoot-out to see off Oxford United.Elsewhere, Fulham claimed their first victory of the season thanks to summer signing Ross McCormack, the £11million forward’s strike sealing a 1-0 triumph over fellow Championship outfit Brentford, while Dwight Gayle’s first-half hat-trick led Crystal Palace to a 3-0 win at Walsall.There was also a frantic finale at Crewe, as Jermaine Beckford looked to have given Bolton a 2-1 triumph in the 90th minute before Marcus Haber immediately struck back to force extra-time.But the hosts failed to complete a fairytale comeback, as Beckford found the net again in the first-half of extra-time to send Bolton through 3-2.Capital One Cup second round results:Bournemouth 3 – 0 NorthamptonBrentford 0 – 1 FulhamBurnley 0 – 1 Sheff WedCrewe 2 – 3 Bolton (after extra-time)Derby 1 – 0 CharltonGillingham 0 – 1 NewcastleHuddersfield 0 – 2 Nottm ForestLeicester 0 – 1 ShrewsburyMiddlesbrough 3 – 1 PrestonMillwall 0 – 2 SouthamptonNorwich 3 – 1 CrawleyPort Vale 2 – 3 CardiffScunthorpe 0 – 1 ReadingSwansea 1 – 0 RotherhamSwindon 2 – 4 Brighton (after extra-time)Walsall 0 – 3 Crystal PalaceWatford 1 – 2 DoncasterWest Ham 1 – 1 Sheff Utd (Sheff Utd win 5-4 on pens)MK Dons 4 – 0 Man UtdWest Brom 1 – 1 Oxford Utd (West Brom win 7-6 on pens)last_img read more
