    USC has added transfer senior point guard Pe'Shon Howard to its 2013-14 men's basketball roster, announced head coach Andy Enfield today (Aug. 26). The Los Angeles native Howard was given a legislative relief waiver to be able to return home to be closer to his ailing grandmother.

    "We are happy that Pe'Shon will be able to spend time with his grandmother who helped raise him here in Los Angeles," said Enfield. "On the court, Pe'Shon will provide leadership and we expect him to have a terrific senior season.

    Howard, a 6-3, 190-pound point guard adds experience to the Trojans' roster as he played in 83 games and made 44 starts for Maryland in three seasons. Last season while serving as a Maryland co-captain, Howard averaged 3.3 points, 2.4 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game while helping lead the Terrapins to the NIT semifinals. He was a member of the Dec. 20 watch list for the Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award. Howard registered 13 assists vs. LIU Brooklyn on Nov. 16, which were two off the school single-game record. He has had 20 career games with five or more assists and has scored in double figures nine times with a career best of 15 points at Temple on Jan. 21, 2012. Howard is from Los Angeles and prepped at national power Oak Hill Academy in Virginia.
