LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matthew Bryan-Amaning and freshman reserve Terrence Ross scored 18 points each, and Washington rallied to beat Southern California 73-67 in overtime in the Pac-10 opener for both teams on Wednesday night.

Ross, whose points were a career high, hit four 3-pointers to tie his career best before fouling out with 2:37 left in overtime.

Bryan-Amaning added eight rebounds, and Justin Holiday scored 12 points for the Huskies (9-3), who won their third in a row and sixth in their last seven.

They outscored USC 18-12 in overtime, with Holiday accounting for their first five points.

USC’s Donte Smith tied it at 58 with a 3-pointer, but the Trojans trailed the rest of the way.

Nikola Vucevic had a career-high 28 points — making all 14 of his free throws — and 14 rebounds for the Trojans (8-6, 0-1), who had won two in a row.
