KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Maurice Jones scored 15 points and Southern California survived a late run by No. 19 Tennessee to beat the Volunteers 65-64 on Tuesday night.

Donte Smith hit a 3-pointer from the wing over the heads of three Tennessee defenders to give the Trojans (7-5) a 65-60 lead with 2:13 left. He missed another with 1:00 left.

 

Scotty Hopson and Melvin Goins each made a pair of free throws for the Vols, with Goins’ cutting the margin to 65-64 with 47 seconds left.

Tennessee (7-3) got the ball back after Jones missed a short jumper with 15 seconds left, but struggled against USC’s press and called a timeout with 3.5 seconds left to set up a play.

Tobias Harris, who led the Vols with 14 points, got a deep 3-point shot off as time expired, but it bounced away.

The Trojans got their first road win in seven attempts. The Vols suffered their third loss in a row.
