Victoria was a hoax UCLA co-ed, created by Cal’s Rally
Committee. For the previous week, “she” had been chatting with
Gabe Pruitt, USC’s starting guard, over AOL Instant Messenger.
It got serious. Pruitt and several of his teammates made plans
to go to Westwood after the game so that they could party with
Victoria and her friends.
On Saturday, at the game, when Pruitt was introduced in the
starting lineup, the chants began: “Victoria, Victoria.” One of
the fans held up a sign with her phone number.
