The USC Song Girls made their return to the Galen Center on Friday night for the Trojans’ exhibition game against Villanova.  The announcement that they would be returning was made earlier in the day on Friday.

The USC Song Girls were banned from performing at the Galen Center under strange circumstances during former athletic director Lynn Swann’s tenure.  Some believe “Fire Clay Helton” chants at the arena were to blame.

Whatever the case, they were back and performing on Friday night.
