In spite of their home court advantage and their victory over the Warriors last year, the Trojans are the underdog in this matchup, statistically speaking. Fifesports.com predicts the Trojans may come up short 58-47. If senior sharpshooter Kevin McCrossin ignites during the game and repeats the stellar performance he is known for, the Trojans could take the game and the esteemed position of league dominance.
