LOS ANGELES — The USC men’s basketball team returned home to the Galen Center on Monday night and extended its win streak to four games after beating Dixie State, 98-71.
Boogie Ellis led the 24th-ranked Trojans with 19 points, five rebounds and three assists, followed by Max Agbonkpolo with 17 points and six rebounds.
Isaiah Mobley had 14 points, six rebounds and four assists for USC, which shot 53% (38 for 72) overall while holding Dixie State to 32% (24 for 76). Chevez Goodwin pulled down 11 rebounds for the Trojans (4-0), who had a 52-38 advantage on the boards.
Ellis assisted on a pair of 3-pointers within the first three minutes of the game – the first by Ethan Anderson and the second by Isaiah Mobley – as the Trojans sprinted to a 13-2 lead.
Anderson threw down the first dunk of the game minutes later, then Ellis followed with a dunk of his own and a jumper to extend the Trojans’ lead to 19-5.
While USC applied pressure in the paint on defense throughout the first half, its offense was 20 for 34, including a 6-for-16 mark from 3-point range.
Reese Dixon-Waters hit a 3-pointer to push the score to 22-5, then after two USC misses, hit another with less than 10 minutes left in the half. USC led the Trailblazers, 47-36 by the break.
Goodwin rebounded a missed 3-point attempt as Dixie State (1-4) crept within nine points a few times, but Ellis made back-to-back 3-pointers about a minute apart to build a 59-46 advantage early in the second half. USC cruised the rest of the way and eased into scoring plays. An Anderson steal led to an Ellis layup that put the Trojans up by 28 points with 7:52 left.
The win marks the first of three games in five days for USC. The Trojans next face Saint Joseph’s in the four-team Wooden Legacy tournament on Thursday at the Anaheim Convention Center.
