Separate fights were reported at MarQuee Lounge and the Wave Bar Saturday night following the Trojans' 76-51 loss to Washington State.
A worker at the Wave told KREM TV this:
Immediately out of the Satellite comes one of the assailants. The first person of inertest was 7-feet-tall, 260 pounds and is the center for USC. He was looking drunk, looking belligerent, calling out our guys, basically admitting to what he had done. [Including] hitting several people, including two women.
