In a thrilling Friday afternoon showdown, the No. 23 USC basketball team narrowly fell to a 4-2 record in the early stages of the college basketball season, facing a tough 72-70 defeat against Oklahoma.

The game was a nail-biter from start to finish, with USC holding a slim 39-36 lead at halftime. Despite the Trojans' efforts, Oklahoma managed to secure a remarkable victory with a late tip-in.

Notably absent from the USC lineup was the highly anticipated freshman Bronny James, who suffered a health scare over the summer.
