USC is the women's basketball team of the week

  The Trojans are 9-0 after a 69-43 victory over Long Beach State.

One win away from equaling the best start in school history, the Southern California Trojans improved to 9-0 over the weekend en route to earning NCAA.com Team of the Week honors.

USC’s latest triumph was over Big West Conference leader Long Beach State. The 69-43 win was fueled by a tenacious defensive performance which held Long Beach State to only 12 second half points. Four Trojans scored in double figures, including a double-double by forward Temi Fagbenle, who had 13 points and a career-high 16 rebounds. Jordan Adams led USC in scoring with 16 points and finished up just a rebound shy of a double-double. Kristen Simon (12 points) and Aliyah Mazyck (10 points) also reached double digits in the Trojan victory. Long Beach State fell to 7-3 with the loss.

With the win, the undefeated Women of Troy are closing the gap on USC's most recent best season start -- a 10-0 mark last hit in 1984-85. The Trojans 9-0 start includes wins over Santa Clara, West Virginia, Gonzaga, Iona and UNLV.

USC will next host the 2015 Women of Troy Classic, bringing in Albany, Florida A&M and UC Davis to the Galen Center for action on Dec. 18 and 20. The Trojans will open with a 6 p.m. clash against Florida A&M on Friday (Dec. 18).

Honorable mention teams of the week: Army, Baylor, Brown, Colorado State, Drake, Duquesne, Missouri, Maryland, Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego, South Dakota State, Texas, UConn, UTEP and William & Mary.
