Found March 11, 2013 on Diehardsport:
According to witnesses, the USC basketball team was involved in a brawl in downtown Spokane, Washington.  The USC basketball team was in town to play Washington State on Saturday, but apparently they did more than just lose to the Cougars 76-51.  Krem.com reported this: “I’m not going to guess at why, but there’s no justification for their actions. There’s no reason why,” Noel Macapagal of The Wave on First Avenue said. At closing time, Macapagal got a call from some employees about a huge fight a block away. He says it was the second fight of the night. The first allegedly started at MarQuee Lounge with the same group of people. “They were saying they were with USC. They were shouting anti-Spokane rhetoric,” Macapagal said. Spokane police say the descriptions they have also fit two USC players. Macapagal said he ran into the same guys at Satellite Diner early Sunday morning. Investigators haven’t named any suspects yet, but apparently one player fits the description of the USC center, Omar Oraby.  He was reportedly drunk and belligerent, and was bragging about the fight and saying he beat up some people, including two women.  That was when a second fight broke out.  If it comes out that this was true, then the basketball team will be in some trouble to say the least.  They’re currently 14-17 on the year and won’t be making the NCAA tournament unless they run the table in the PAC-12 tournament.
