STANFORD (AP) — Nikola Vucevic scored 19 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, and Alex Stepheson added 15 points Saturday night, leading Southern California to a 69-53 victory over Stanford.

Donte Smith had 13 points, while Maurice Jones came off the bench for the second time this season and scored 10 for the Trojans (15-12, 7-7 Pac-10), who beat Stanford at Maples Pavilion for the first time since Feb. 21, 2002, and swept their regular-season series.

Josh Owens scored a team-high 13 points, while Jeremy Green and Josh Huestis each scored 11 for Stanford (13-13, 6-9). Dwight Powell had nine rebounds.

The Trojans and Cardinal are both fighting to finish among the top six teams in the Pac-10 and escape a play-in game for the conference tournament.

USC moved into a tie for fourth place with Oregon, while Stanford fell to eighth.
