USC basketball took the fight to Oregon in the Sweet 16, getting revenge for the Pac-12 title with a series of silky finishes and devastating dunks.

Are you still riding high on USC basketball's Sweet 16 victory over Oregon? You should be, but we'll guarantee you will be after reliving some of the action from Sunday night.

The Trojans downed the Ducks 82-68 in scintilating fashion, with contributions from all over the roster.

What were the best highlights of the game? We've got them here...

Isaiah White's swish and staredown

Oregon came out firing on Sunday. They scored the first five points of the game and held a lead past the 12-minute mark of the first half. It took a flurry of three-pointers to knock them down a peg.

Tahj Eaddy delivered the first one to give the Trojans their first lead of the game, but the Ducks quickly responded with a tip-in basket.

The tone really shifted when Isaiah White made a statement three. Literally.

The guard faded out to the left as Ethan Anderson shot a crosscourt pass through the defense. He took aim with his unconventional shooting style and hit nothing but net. Then he turned around and stared down the Oregon bench.

"I just wanted to let them know we weren't letting down," White told reporters after the game. We were gonna come at whoever and we were gonna keep battling."

Mission accomplished. From then on USC went on a 22-9 run and took a commanding lead into the half.

White, who averaged 7.7 points during the regular season, ended up with a team-high 22 points. He hit four of his five three-point attempts. He also had five rebounds, an assist and three steals on his best night as a Trojan so far.
