Trojans Get Huge Win Over #10 Arizona
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Nikola Vucevic had 25 points and 12 rebounds, and his teammates came up with two huge blocks in the closing minutes to help Southern California upset No. 10 Arizona 65-57 on Thursday night.
Jio Fontan added 21 points and Alex Stepheson had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Trojans (16-12, 8-7 Pac-10), who extended their winning streak to a season-best three games.
Jesse Perry scored 12 points and Kevin Parrom added 10 for the Wildcats (23-5, 12-3), whose eight-game winning streak ended on an off-night for offensive star Derrick Williams, who scored a season-low eight points.
The Wildcats head into a showdown at second-place UCLA on Saturday.
