USC Trojans head coach Andy Enfield knows that a top priority for his team over the Christmas college basketball break is to get his roster fully healthy.
The Trojans earned a convincing 91-49 win over the Southern Utah Thunderbirds on Friday night, which allowed USC to get back to .500 at 6-6 on the season.
Of course, one of the main reasons why the team has struggled to find consistency is due to a variety of injuries, and that’s limited what the Trojans have been able to do against high-quality opponents.
And Enfield understands having his full roster available will be crucial to winning games in the Pac-12 this year.
“Need to get healthy over the break and get ready for Pac-12 play. We need to take some momentum into the second half of the season,” Enfield on his team, with the start of conference play less than two weeks away.
When healthy, USC can undoubtedly be among the best teams in the conference, especially in a season like this one where the Pac-12 may struggle to land more than a few bids in the NCAA Tournament.
The USC Trojans will return to the court on Dec. 30 for a clash with the UC Davis Aggies before preparing to host the California Golden Bears to open up league play on Jan. 3.
