Here is a great recap from GALEN these folks do some great USC Trojans basketball coverage:

"It got a bit close for comfort, but the Trojans used lights-out shooting in the first half (56.3 percent) to go up big on New Mexico, then held on for a 90-82 win at the Galen Center Saturday night. The Trojans led 74-53 with 7:42 left, but the Lobos' turned on the switch from behind the arc (10-of-18 in the second half) to cut it down to 87-82 in the final minute. Sophomore point guard Jordan McLaughlin led USC with 19 points and six assists, sophomore forward Elijah Stewart had 18 and freshman forward Bennie Boatwright had a career-high 15 points and nine rebounds. USC is now 3-0 for the first time since the 2000-01 team that made the Elite 8."

From the Los Angeles Times:

"The score was tied, 12-12, in the opening minutes before the Trojans launched a 20-8 run that produced their first double-digit lead, 32-20. Five players scored during the run, including Stewart with two three-pointers and McLaughlin with five points."
