On paper, it doesn’t look good.

Undefeated Arizona arrives at the Galen Center as the No. 1 team in the country with wins over Duke, Michigan and UCLA.

USC, on the other hand, has lost its last two games by a combined 53 points.

Feeling déjà vu? The last time the two teams met, nobody gave the Trojans much of a shot against then No. 11 Arizona. Yet USC managed to pull off the upset, allowing students a rare opportunity to rush the court:
