They are the only not to have ever been to the NCAA finals but the USC Trojans find it just might be an advantage.
Other finalists UCLA, Notre Dame and the Florida State University have all been here before.
USC will take on their cross-town rivals in the semi-finals UCLA so it will not be difficult to find motivation.
The expectations may be less from the media but it just may be an advantage.
“We are the only “rookie” here,” says USC’s leading scorer Amy Rodriguez. “I see that there are advantages as well as disadvantages. The advantages that we don’t have alot of pressure on ourselves. Nobody is expecting us to take the whole cup. That’s kind of motivation for us.”
