Recap from Jacob Freedman at Galen Central:

Elijah Stewart called USC the “Harry Potter of the Pac-12,” but the magic just wasn’t there Saturday night at the Galen Center. After a back-and-forth showdown, a slew of turnovers and defensive lapses down the stretch doomed USC (21-5, 8-5 in Pac-12) in a 81-70 loss to No. 5 Oregon (22-4, 11-2).”

Recap from Reign of Troy:

“True to form, Dana Altman’s Oregon Ducks took advantage of an off shooting night by USC and jumped out to an early first half lead. They led by as many as 11 points, though the Trojans went into the half on a 16-7 run.”
