**We could use some help covering USC Basketball.**
“Arizona led by 10 at halftime and took a 22-point lead with 11 minutes left after two free throws by Kadeem Allen but, as it’s happened several times this season, the Wildcats had difficulty closing the game out.
The Trojans strung together a 13-2 run to make it a 58-47 game with under six minutes to play.
The Wildcats missed nine shots in a row at one point and USC continued to chip away at Arizona’s lead.”
“The Trojans pulled within 64-57 when Stewart converted a rebound tip-in into a three-point play. Shaqquan Allen made two free throws twice in the final minutes, pulling USC within 67-64 with 1:03 to play.
Markkanen sank a long 3-pointer as the shot clock expired to give Arizona a 70-64 lead with 33 seconds to play. Southern Cal could get no closer than 70-66 after that.”
“Elijah Stewart scored 20 points and Jordan McLaughlin added 14 points and eight assists for Southern California (16-4, 3-4).
"We've come back several times from deficits," USC coach Andy Enfield said. "We had a chance to win it in the final 2 minutes but things didn't go our way."“
