Bronny James had an opportunity to get in the USC Trojans starting lineup Saturday night and showcased some of his playmaking talent with the opportunity.

He scored nine points, grabbed three rebounds and added a steal in the Trojans 82-54 blowout victory over Oregon State. Passing the ball was James’ best attribute in the game, however, as he had a game-high six assists and was noticeably in sync with his teammates.

Thuc Nhi Nguyen @thucnhi21Bronny James grabs the defensive board off a Joshua Morgan block, leads the break and dishes pass to Boogie Ellis for three. USC up big: 46-27, 16:27 left.

Bronny eight points, two rebounds, four assists and Jordan Pope defensive assignment. Pope has 11 points with six turnovers

The Trojans will need to have a red-hot second half in order to be in play for the NCAA Tournament. A Pac-12 Championship and an automatic bid would get the team there, and seeing performances like this definitely helps that reality.

While Oregon State has a superior 11-11 record to the Trojans, it still is second-to-last in the conference standings. USC is currently occupying the last place spot, and navigating through the tournament will be extremely difficult.

Still, Saturday’s win was a positive and James’ strong play shows that this Trojans team is capable of doing some damage.
