PULLMAN, Wash. (AP)—DeAngelo Casto scored 24 points and Klay Thompson added 22 to lead Washington State to an 85-77 victory against USC on Thursday night.

Faisal Aden scored 20 points for the Cougars (19-10, 9-8 Pac-10).

Washington State guard Reggie Moore grabs his ankle after tangling with a Southern California player during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game Thursday, March 3, 2011, in Pullman, Wash. Moore played 7 minutes and did not return. Washington State won 85-77.

Nikola Vucevic led USC (17-13, 9-8) with 22 points and 11 rebounds. Maurice Jones added 16 points and Donte Smith 14.

In the final 4:45, Washington State had one shot from the floor: a layup by Aden, after he stole the ball from Vucevic. The basket put the Cougars up 77-70 with 1:41 remaining.

The rest was done at the line, where Washington State went 10 of 14 in the final 4:45, and 8 of 8 in the final 3:03.

The Cougars lost guard Reggie Moore to a sprained ankle seven minutes into the game. He will be re-evaluated on Friday.
