Mobley Bros. Lead No. 6 Seed USC to 85-51 Rout of Kansas
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Southern California coach Andy Enfield is taking another program to the Sweet 16.
The only surprise about this one? How handily his Trojans took apart No. 3 seed Kansas.
Isaiah Mobley hit four 3-pointers and scored 17 points, All-American little brother Evan added 10 points and 13 rebounds, and sixth-seeded USC rolled to an 85-51 victory Monday night inside Hinkle Fieldhouse — more than doubling the worst margin of defeat for the Jayhawks in 49 trips to the NCAA Tournament.
“This game meant a lot to our program and our fans. USC basketball is on the rise,” said Enfield, who coached No. 15 seed Florida Gulf Coast to the Sweet 16 in 2013 and now has the Trojans there for the first time in 14 years.
They will face seventh-seeded Oregon in a Pac-12 showdown Sunday night.
