Andy Enfield and the USC Trojans got an important win on Wednesday against the Colorado Buffaloes to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive. Enfield said that’s all the team is focus on and there wasn’t any extra incentive because of a prior history with Colorado.
“We just focused on the task at hand, that was to try to play our best basketball here,”Enfield said, per ESPN, via the Associated Press. “We knew it was an important game and now we’re going to focus on Utah.”
Earlier this season Colorado coach Tad Boyle admitted that he takes extra pleasure beating teams like Arizona and USC due to the FBI’s ongoing corruption probe involving the two schools. Enfield figuratively got his revenge when he called a timeout with USC up by 12 with under 30 seconds remaining in their first meeting.
The Trojans have now swept the Buffaloes this season. USC plays Utah next before closing out the regular season at home against crosstown rival UCLA. It’s vital for the Trojans to win at least of those games if they want to keep their tournament chances afloat.
