Social media was full of love for USC basketball after the Trojans pushed Baylor to the final seconds, but couldn’t complete the upset in the 2017 NCAA Tournament.
It was a disappointing end to USC basketball’s NCAA Tournament run on Sunday night when the Trojans fell, 82-78, to the No. 3 seed Baylor Bears in Tulsa.
USC once again overcame a double-digit, surging back from a five-point half time deficit in the early minutes of the second period. However, the Trojans came up just short as Baylor wrestled control back in the final minutes, then finished out the game from the free throw line.
Despite the loss, there was nothing but love for USC basketball on social media. Here’s the best of the reaction:
USC finished the season with a school-record 26 wins and a magical tournament run. The question now: Will Chimezie Metu and Bennie Boatwright return?
