Southern California, ravaged by injuries and unfulfilled expectations, was one of the most disappointing college teams in the country. RHP Brian Bannister, son of ex-big leaguer and 1976 No. 1 pick Floyd Bannister, was counted on as a starter for the Trojans after a rash of injuries decimated the staff. But he was more effective out of the bullpen. He added 2-3 mph to his velocity, though his 78 mph curveball remained his best pitch. Few pitchers understand pitching more than the 6-foot-1, 205-pounder, who'll need to stay healthy after undergoing surgery a year ago.
