No. 15 SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA 78, ARIZONA STATE 56
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Drew Peterson scored 16 points and Southern California shook off a slow start to defeat Arizona State.
The Trojans (17-2, 7-2 Pac-12), playing their third game in five days, fell behind by 12 points midway through the first half. They missed 15 of their first 18 and committed eight turnovers in the first 14 minutes before turning things around.
USC closed the first half on a 21-2 run to take a 31-24 lead at halftime. A 3-pointer by DJ Horne got the Sun Devils within 41-35 before the Trojans put it out of reach with a 14-2 run.
Marreon Jackson led Arizona State (6-11, 2-5) with 21 points and Jalien Graham had 15. The Sun Devils (6-11, 2-5) — who have dropped five of their last six — were without coach Bobby Hurley and guard Jay Heath after both were suspended one game by Pac-12 commissioner George Kliavkoff for verbally confronting officials after Saturday’s 79-76 loss at Stanford.
