Brynn Cameron returns for her final season of action for the Trojans, locked and loaded as a formidable perimeter threat who already stands as the Trojans’ No. 3 all-time 3-point shooter with 131 career threes and ranks No. 5 all-time with a 34.5% 3-point shooting percentage.

2007-08 SEASON

Cameron got back to action after her second surgery and the birth of her son Cole, hitting a team-high 40 three-pointers on the season. Averaged 5.8 points per game, appearing in 28 games and starting six. Hit double figures in four games, with a season-high 18 points at UC Santa Barbara. Led team in scoring three times. Set a new career high with five steals vs. Virginia Tech. Best field goal percentage came in a 6-of-8 (.750) effort at Stanford.


Cameron redshirted the 2006-07 season to give birth to her son Cole.


Cameron’s sophomore season was affected by a nagging hip injury that eventually shortened her year in order to endure a second surgery at the end of the season. Appeared in 13 games for USC, hitting 19 threes in that span to average 5.5 points per game. Moved up to rank No. 6 all-time in career 3-pointers with 91. Nailed a career-high six 3-pointers on Dec. 6 against Oregon State, including three straight in a second-half comeback rally. Those six threes tied her own school record for 3-pointers in a single game and helped her match her career high of 20 points. Hip pain kept the sophomore playing limited minutes for the next stretch of Pac-10 play, and Cameron finally had to be sidelined for the season and another surgery.


Cameron established herself as a go-to outside shooter in her first year at USC, emerging as the top scorer for the Women of Troy with 9.8 points per game — 19th best in the Pac-10. Ranked No. 25 in the nation in three-point field goal percentage (.409) and second in the Pac-10 in three-pointers made (72). That mark eclipsed the USC single-season record for three-pointers made and was the ninth best total all-time in the Pac-10. Named to the Pac-10 All-Freshman team and awarded All-Pac-10 honorable mention. Shot 42.1 percent from the field and averaged 2.7 rebounds per game. Started 26 out of 31 games. Scored in double figures 14 times. Top USC scorer in nine games. Made her first collegiate start in USC’s opener vs. Massachusetts, scoring nine points, nabbing two steals and shooting 40 percent from the floor. Top scoring performance came on Dec. 11 with 20 points against South Dakota State. Had her first career double-double in USC’s 80-77 win over UCLA with 17 points and a season-high 10 rebounds on Feb. 20. Nailed a long three-pointer to tie the game 59-59 with 21.7 seconds left in USC’s 61-59 loss to Michigan State in the NCAA second round on March 21.
