USC junior big man Isaiah Mobley missed the team’s game Saturday night against rival UCLA with concussion-like symptoms.
Despite his absence, No. 21 USC beat No. 12 UCLA, 67-64, behind 27 points and 12 rebounds from senior guard Drew Peterson.
The 6-foot-10 Mobley missed the team’s game Feb. 8 with Cal due to a broken nose suffered last Saturday against Arizona. He is averaging 14.7 points and 8.5 rebounds for No. 21 USC.
