Near the end of the 2012-2013 college basketball season, we were all introduced to one of the hottest young names in college basketball coaching, Andy Enfield.

Enfield led an unsuspecting Florida Gulf Coast team to a magnificent run in the NCAA Tournament earlier this year which found the team all the way into the Sweet 16. They capture our attention with the way they were able to run the floor and dunk you out of the building with tremendous alley-oops.

Because of that, Enfield was tabbed as the man to lead the USC Trojans, who had a vacancy, and take them to prominence in the Pac-12.

Well, that journey didn’t get off to a great start Friday night in the opener as the Trojans fell to Utah State by a final score of 78-65.

Granted, this season could all be taken with a grain of salt as Enfield will need some time to get the pieces in place that he needs in Los Angeles to run his style of basketball that had that FGCU team nicknamed, “Dunk City.”

This may just be the first of some punishing lumps this USC basketball team may take this season.
