Trojans Smother Stanford To Even Pac-10 Record
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Nikola Vucevic had 20 points and nine rebounds as Southern Cal held Stanford to a season-low in points during a 65-42 victory Thursday night.
The Trojans (11-8, 3-3 Pac-10), who snapped a two-game losing streak, made 7 of 14 3-pointers and shot 55.6 percent from the field.
Alex Stepheson added 10 points and 11 rebounds for his seventh double-double of the year for USC.
Anthony Brown had nine points for Stanford (10-7, 3-3), which scored only seven points in the first 13 minutes of the second half and shot a season-low 22.2 percent from the field.
The Cardinal scored the first basket of the game when Josh Owens hit a turnaround jumper, but Stanford made just 2 of its first 14 shots to trail 16-5.
