What a transformation.
At this time last year, USC was finishing up an 8-20 season. Now, the fifth-ranked Trojans are 17-9 as they head into Thursday’s MPSF semifinal match with arch-rival UCLA. No matter the outcome, USC has had the biggest positive turnaround of any team playing NCAA Division I-II men’s volleyball this season.
Consider that USC is the only team to beat top-ranked and defending NCAA champion Long Beach State, went 12-0 at home, and is coming off an MPSF sweep of Grand Canyon this past Saturday night.
So how good are the Trojans?
