WATCH: USC’s Jordan McLaughlin and Chimezie Metu link up for long-distance alley-oop


USC senior guard Jordan McLaughlin is one of the most prolific passers in Pac-12 history, entering Thursday’s conference tournament quarterfinal against Oregon State fifth all-time in assists. And at least once a game he dishes out a dime that’s hard to believe even after watching it several times.

But his lob from beyond halfcourt to junior forward Chimezie Metu might have been the best of all.

Just WOW.

McLaughlin’s pass midway through the second half was the third of his 4 assists to go along with 13 points in second-seeded USC’s 61-48 win over No. 10 Oregon State, while Metu’s flush was part of a 22-point, 11-rebound performance on 10-of-15 shooting.

USC (22-10) moves on to the Pac-12 tournament semifinals on Friday night against either No. 3 Utah or No. 6 Oregon.

Torpy at Large: Fire sale of Georgia town a sign of desperate times

It’s after 1 p.m. and I’ve been sitting for 45 minutes on the raised sidewalk outside the old brick bank building at Main and Railroad streets, the historic heart of Toomsboro, Ga. It is quiet. Eerie quiet. The only humans to pass by are the occasional motorist or the drivers of the kaolin trucks that rumble past every couple of minutes...

Tiger Woods wins. Honestly, when he began playing again this season following the medical Hail Mary of spinal fusion surgery, I never thought I’d be typing those three words. Much less seeing him win while turning East Lake into one great green mosh pit. Underestimating Woods, you see, is a fool’s prerogative. His wire-to-wire win at the...
