Every time the USC baseball team has taken the field this year, they have left with a win. Seven games and seven victories mean that for the first time since 1988, USC baseball is 7-0. The 1988 team ended up 15-0 before finally dropping a game, so this 2012 team has its work cut out if it wants to match that record.Tuesday afternoon, the Trojans begin their toughest week of the season as they travel to Malibu to face Pepperdine at 2 p.m.The tough stretch continues this weekend when they travel to North Carolina to take on the No. 6 Tar Heels in a three-game set, and will come to a close a week from today when the Trojans host No. 17 Cal State Fullerton back at Dedeaux Field.With two ranked teams on the horizon, it would seem fairly easy to look past the Waves (6-2), but one look at the Waves’ record indicates that would be a bad idea.“Pepperdine has played really, really well this year,” USC coach Frank Cruz said. “We’re gonna have to be really prepared, really focused and just execute.”“Just execute” is exactly what the Trojans have done this year, getting both expected and unexpected contributions.Among those expected: right fielder Alex Sherrod. While the senior hit just .259 to start the year, he is tied for the team lead in RBIs with seven and homers with two, including a mammoth grand slam against Akron on Sunday.“Winning makes everything better,” Sherrod said. “It makes you feel 10 pounds lighter. We dance in the locker room after wins. It’s just fun.”But for every player like Sherrod, who is an experienced senior and expected to make a significant contribution, there are also younger players who have stepped cleanly and successfully into their roles.Freshman Dante Flores has established himself as the starting second baseman, and freshman Garrett Stubbs, recruited as a catcher, has locked down center field.“I’d never played center field before in my life,” Stubbs said. “I’d actually never even played outfield in general.”Stubbs has turned into a bit of a prodigy. He not only bats leadoff, but he is hitting .346 and has a .500 on-base percentage.“It’s been pretty unbelievable,” Stubbs said of his first few weeks as a Trojan. “It’s just fun to be around all of these guys and winning a lot.”Players like Stubbs are one of the principal reasons for the Trojans’ success: They simply don’t make outs. As a team, the players’ on-base percentage is an incredible .450. Stubbs is just one of five players with an on-base percentage above .500, led by sophomore walk-on left fielder Kevin Swick’s .556.Both Swick and Stubbs are incredibly versatile players. Stubbs has played catcher, left field and center field. Swick can play both left field and third base. Senior catcher Kevin Roundtree can also play either corner infield position. Junior third baseman Adam Landecker can play both shortstop and second base as well.Perhaps most impressive is the versatility of senior Brandon Garcia. On the weekends he serves as the Trojans’ designated hitter and leads the team in both slugging and walks. Today, he will take the mound for his second start of the season in his second year as USC’s midweek starter.

Related Stories Syracuse misses too many shots in upset loss to St. John’sSyracuse basketball stat of the dayMalachi Richardson: ‘Shots will fall eventually, that’s what I’m here to do’ Facebook Twitter Google+ NEW YORK — Federico Mussini tilted his head to the roof of Madison Square Garden and let out a scream. Both arms extended at his sides fully flexed. His 3-pointer from well beyond NBA range gave St. John’s its largest lead of the day.A game in the balance for most of the first half was now 11 points in the Red Storm’s favor. Thirty-five seconds remained in the opening period and Madison Square Garden erupted, courtesy of the thin, 6-foot-1 freshman.“My teammates need me open,” Mussini said. “We have great shooters on the team, they make space for me to be open and take my shot.”On Sunday, Mussini and fellow Italian Amar Alibegovic torched Syracuse from behind the arc, combining for 32 points and 8-of-11 shooting from deep. It equaled the number of 3-pointers the Red Storm hit in its three games before Sunday and contributed two-thirds of SJU’s 12 3s on the afternoon.Syracuse’s zone was exposed at times by intentionally focusing on St. John’s big men in the high post. Others, it was simply a touch from deep that the Red Storm (7-3) hasn’t seen this season that propelled it to an 84-72 upset win over Syracuse (7-3) on Sunday at MSG.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“They shot the ball really well today,” Syracuse wing Malachi Richardson said, “better than they probably ever shot it.”Alibegovic came into Sunday averaging 3.9 points per game and a meager 26-percent clip from behind the arc. On his first make of the day, he pumped his hands down at his sides as he retreated past midcourt. Each of his ensuing 3s drew a similar reaction, thrusting three fingers into the side of his head after one second-half make before Syracuse called a timeout.After a comfortable win against Colgate on Tuesday, SU interim head coach Mike Hopkins said the perfect recipe to beat the zone is shooters who can hit from deep. The Raiders flashed that potential, but couldn’t find the solution to pull an upset. Five days later, it was that exact formula that exposed a Syracuse zone often too slow to get out.“When they make nine, 10, 11, that is not a good formula for our success,” Hopkins said. “A couple of the kids like Mussini, they were like Steph Curry shots.”SJU big men Kassoum Yakwe and Yankuba Sima would flash to the elbow, receive the ball on a bounce and turn. Yakwe often took a dribble before putting up a floater and Sima did more distributing. When the ball was kicked back out by either, it was often one more pass to the corner that did Syracuse in.“Sometimes we wanted the ball to go into the post,” SU guard Trevor Cooney said, “and we were rotating out of it and sometimes we took the gamble and that’s when they swung it and made a deep 3.“Sometimes, there’s really nothing we can do.”Just like other opponents, Alibegovic noted the spaces in Syracuse’s zone allowed St. John’s to grab offensive boards and hit 3s off second-chance opportunities.The Red Storm is just the next team to solve the 2-3 with that formula. And to avoid slipping deeper out of the national spotlight, Syracuse has to find its own solution.

Rucci is a five-star recruit who ranks fifth among offensive tackles in the country’s 2021 class, according to 247 sports. Not only is Rucci the top player in Pennsylvania, but he also ranks as the No. 14 overall prospect in the class of 2021. He is only the fifth five-star to commit to Wisconsin since 2000, and just the second five-star to commit to the Badgers, along with 2019 offensive tackle Logan Brown.

But, his athleticism and the fluidity of his footwork are skills that make him stand out. Along with his nimble movements, Rucci is incredibly physical at the line of scrimmage and shows the nastiness that Head Coach Paul Chryst’s program seeks out of an offensive lineman. When Rucci arrives at Wisconsin, the assumption is that he will redshirt his freshman year. After a year under his belt, Rucci could jump into a starting role as a redshirt freshman in the 2022 season. Nevertheless, all signs point to Rucci becoming the next spectacular lineman to come out of Wisconsin.
