Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports Remember Derryck Thornton?

Well his USC career is over now and graduate Thornton finished his last season with 7.7 points and 4.3 assists. If you look at his career stats, moving to a weaker conference was probably a good idea but it didnt help his stats much at all.
