The USC Trojans and the New Mexico State Aggies will both be trying to pick up a win on Monday when they battle at Stan Sheriff Center.

ABOUT USC (8-4): Boatwright turned in one of his best efforts of the season Saturday, scoring 23 points along with a career-high six assists, six rebounds and two blocks. “I thought he was great. He was efficient. He made the right decisions,” Enfield told reporters. “He got to foul line 16 times, so he put the ball on the floor when he had to. He drove it hard. He posted up and then he made threes when he was open.” Enfield was also pleased by the play of guard Shaqquan Aaron, who scored 10 points off the bench and had two assists, two rebounds and a steal with no turnovers.

ABOUT NEW MEXICO STATE (11-2): Guard Zach Lofton had 15 points and nine rebounds in the upset of seventh-ranked Miami, which was held to 34 percent shooting by the tenacious Aggies defense. “It’s a defining program win,” coach Chris Jans told reporters. “We don’t get many opportunities like this to play a highly-ranked team on a neutral court. Couldn’t be more proud for a group of a guys than I am right now.” The Aggies, picked to finish second in the WAC preseason coaches poll, are holding opponents to 64.5 points per game with a rebounding margin of plus-8.8 — 18th-best nationally.

Oddsmakers opened the Trojans as -4.5-point favorites versus the Aggies, while the game’s total opened at 146.5.

USC coach Andy Enfield has started a different lineup in six straight games because of injuries, but forward Chimezie Metu has been one of the few constants. The 6-11 junior looks to continue his strong play as the Trojans face New Mexico State on Christmas Day in the championship game of the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu.

Metu scored 27 points and grabbed nine rebounds in Saturday’s 89-84 victory over Middle Tennessee State as the Trojans won for the fourth time in their last five contests following a three-game losing streak. The short-handed Trojans are playing without dynamic guard De’Anthony Melton, who did not make the trip to Honolulu and has yet to play this season while the school investigates his eligibility. Forward Bennie Boatwright has looked strong in Honolulu after missing two games because of a plantar wart, but guard Jonah Mathews has missed two of the past three contests with a sprained right ankle and is listed as day-to-day. The Trojans figure to be tested by upstart New Mexico State, which recorded its first victory over a ranked team in 10 years with Saturday’s 63-54 win over previously unbeaten Miami.

New Mexico State was a 63-54 winner in their most recent outing on the road against Hurricanes. They covered the +9-point spread as underdogs.

In their last action, USC was a 89-84 winner at home against Blue Raiders. They covered the -3-point spread as favorites.
