The USC Trojans earned a big conference victory over Washington Saturday, but freshman Bronny James was reduced to a limited role in the win.

The Trojans won 82-75 to improve to 12-17 on the season and had some notable breakout performances. This includes guard Isaiah Collier, who had 31 points and went 14-of-20 from the field. Forward D.J. Rodman and guard Boogie Ellis also had 17 points each, with the two combining for 10 rebounds as well.

James, meanwhile, went scoreless and only attempted one shot. He did grab three rebounds and dished out two assists, including one that made waves on social media.

While there was plenty to like from the Trojans in the upset victory, James’ inability to make a significant impact still dominated much of the discussion on social media.

I’ve watched this entire Washington/USC game so far and I can say two things without any doubt…. Collier on Cincinnati this year would’ve made us a tournament team. The dude is so good. And Bronny isn’t even close to an NBA player yet. But tbf most freshman aren’t…

Bronny is 0-1 with 3 rebounds and an assist.. that one assist is going to be on a loop all day while Collier went off for 20+

Bronny should transfer to Michigan, he would get hella PT over here

James is averaging 5.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 19 games for USC in 2023-24, and at this point, it’s unclear if he will return for his sophomore season or declare for the 2024 NBA draft.

Until then, however, he will look to help the Trojans finish out the season strong as USC has two games left on their regular season slate.
