The Pirates will take on #16 ranked USC on Thanksgiving next week, which will be a test for this Pirates roster to see if they can prove themselves as a top team in the nation rather than beating up on lower ranked local opponents. We will see how the Pirates stack up against top prospect Isaiah Collier, who is averaging 20 points per game as a freshman for the Trojans. One more threat the team will have to face is Bronny James, son of NBA legend Lebron James, as he will be a part of the Trojan roster.
