WATCH: USC’s Jordan McLaughlin and Chimezie Metu link up for long-distance alley-oop


USC senior guard Jordan McLaughlin is one of the most prolific passers in Pac-12 history, entering Thursday’s conference tournament quarterfinal against Oregon State fifth all-time in assists. And at least once a game he dishes out a dime that’s hard to believe even after watching it several times.

But his lob from beyond halfcourt to junior forward Chimezie Metu might have been the best of all.

Just WOW.

McLaughlin’s pass midway through the second half was the third of his 4 assists to go along with 13 points in second-seeded USC’s 61-48 win over No. 10 Oregon State, while Metu’s flush was part of a 22-point, 11-rebound performance on 10-of-15 shooting.

USC (22-10) moves on to the Pac-12 tournament semifinals on Friday night against either No. 3 Utah or No. 6 Oregon.
