What has emerged, very clearly, is a balanced team that has an identity on the defense end first and foremost, that plays through and off each other and moves the ball with vision and intent when it's at its best on the offensive side, and that is overall benefitting from some impressive individual player development over the offseason. All of that was evident Friday night as the Trojans moved to 6-0 in this young season with one of their best wins yet. No. 24 USC used a dominant run from the middle of the first half to early in the second half to pull away from San Diego State for a 58-43 victory in the Paycom Wooden Legacy tournament championship game at Anaheim Arena.
