From USC Athletics via the AP:
“McLaughlin scored 19 points, including a go-ahead floater in the lane with 48 seconds left, and USC remained undefeated with an 82-77 comeback victory over Troy on Saturday night.
''This was good for our young guys to get a game like this with conference coming up,'' McLaughlin said. ''It will help us mature.''
Southern California (10-0) has its best start since going 16-0 to open the 1971 season. It remains one of two undefeated Pac-12 schools, along with UCLA, which beat Ohio State on Saturday to improve to 12-0.”
“Through the late push, USC closed on a 21-11 run and escaped with an 82-77 victory against Troy in the final minutes to move to 10-0 overall. As it improved on its best start in 46 years, it remained one of only six unbeaten teams in Division I. Three straight victories have come even amid the loss of sophomore forward Bennie Boatwright, regarded as the team’s top offensive scorer.”
