USC Julian Jacobs scored 17 points in a 79-72 win over Colorado on Wednesday night to remain undefeated at home this season.

The Trojans trailed the Buffaloes by eight heading into halftime, but Jacobs woke up the Galen Center with a breakaway reverse dunk in the opening minutes of the second half.

That cut the deficit to three. USC wouldn’t wrestle the lead away from Colorado until the final minutes of regulation when Jordan McLaughlin put the Trojans up 68-65 with 2:55 left.

McLaughlin scored a game-high 25 points.

Jacobs, one of 10 finalists for the Jerry West Award, is averaging 12.4 points and 5.0 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game.
