USC basketball: Point, counterpoint with Daniel Hackett

When I asked Daniel Hackett to grade his performance as USC’s point guard this season, he cited team accomplishments over individual ones.

“We got some good victories. We’re right there,” he said. “We’re in the hunt for a championship. We’re in the hunt for a third straight NCAA Tournament appearance. It’s been going pretty well so far.”

Hackett has fared well as a first-time, full-time point guard, but he has endured his share of growing pains too, as my story on him details.

He’d be more comfortable on the court — and USC would be a more complete team — if the Trojans had a pure point guard to play alongside him. But they don’t. So Hackett has had no choice but to try to make the best of a difficult situation.
