Arizona 86, Southern Cal 84
Guard Nic Wise scored 15 points, including the game-winning
layup with 1.5 seconds left as Arizona defeated USC 86-84 in double
overtime on Saturday.
Wise, a senior playing in his final regular-season game at
McKale Center, went through traffic to make the winning shot off
the backboard. USC’s Donte Smith missed a tying shot at the
Guard Kyle Fogg and Derrick Williams led Arizona (16-14, 10-8
Pac-10) with 18 points each. Fogg sank three free throws after
being fouled on a 3-point shot with two-tenths of a second left in
regulation to tie the score at 69 and force the first overtime.
In the first overtime, USC’s Marcus Simmons’ jumper tied it at
78 with 16.3 seconds left.
Dwight Lewis led USC (16-14, 8-10) with 21 points, but he fouled
out with 1:07 remaining in the first overtime. It was the Trojans’
final game of the season.
