USC basketball absolutely blitzed Kansas in their Round of 32 NCAA Tournament matchup and no one loved it more than USC football players.

The Trojan Family is strong. It's a bond that doesn't matt which school you went to or which team you played on.

USC football has proven that over the years with their support of USC basketball. On Monday night, as the Trojans demolished Kansas in the NCAA Tournament, football alums were more ecstatic than anyone.

USC football players cheered on USC basketball in the NCAA Tournament

When USC pulled away by 19 points at the half, Trojans like quarterback Matt Leinart, tight end Dominique Byrd, cornerback Adoree' Jackson, safety Dion Bailey and more couldn't help themselves.

Defensive line coach Vic So'oto also got in on the action.

That's not to say USC basketball alumni were silent. Chimezie Metu was cheering on his brothers in real-time along with others.

USC had good reason to puff out their chests. Kansas isn't as strong this year as they have been in the past, but they have never lost an NCAA Tournament game by more than 20 points, according to Katie Sharp. With under five minutes to play, USC had a 30-point lead.

Assuming the Trojans close out the Jayhawks, the Sweet 16 awaits. It'll be USC's first appearance since 2007. They will have a shot to advance to the Elite Eight for the first time since 2001 with a win over Oregon.

The good news? The last time USC met Oregon they blasted them at the Galen Center without the services of Isaiah Mobley, who was out injured.

The bad news? The Ducks are hot as ever and will present a dangerous test for the Trojans.

In the grand scheme of things, Oregon will look at USC's latest performance and be just as worried. If the Trojans play as they did on Monday, they'll have to juice to beat just about anyone.
