What could UCLA and USC's moves from the Pac-12 to the Big Ten mean for college basketball?

Just when you thought the conference realignment carousel might have come to rest, the USC Trojans and UCLA Bruins sent it spinning out of control again. Thursday's report revealing USC and UCLA's intention to join the Big Ten Conference by 2024 sent another round of shockwaves through the college sports landscape, an impact potentially similar to the fallout of the announced departure of Oklahoma and Texas from the Big 12 to the SEC last summer.

Though football will undoubtedly be the main focus in the USC-UCLA story, the movement of the two Los Angeles-based universities will have a significant impact on other sports, including men's and women's basketball.
