NOTABLE: This is the final game of the regular season for both teams. … USC won the first meeting, 86-51, on Jan. 12 in Boulder. … USC leads the all-time series, 10-6. … CU had a two-game win streak snapped with a 73-67 loss to No. 10 UCLA on Thursday. Alexis Robinson had a career-high 31 points in the loss. … USC escaped Thursday with a 53-52 home win against Utah after Simon hit a game-winning 3-pointer with just over a second to play in overtime. … Robinson is averaging 19.2 points in the last six games. … Leonard needs one assist to break her own single-season CU record for assists. She has 190 this year. … Barring some upsets around the league this weekend, the Buffs are likely to be the No. 9 seed for next week’s Pac-12 Tournament and would play either USC or Utah in the first round on Thursday.
