#17 UCLA snaps skid against #16 USC, 75-68

#17 UCLA snaps skid against #16 USC, 75-68

Jaime Jaquez Jr. scored 27 points and #17 converted 15 turnovers into 21 points as the Bruins scored their first win over rival and 16th-ranked Southern Cal since February 2019, 75-68, Saturday in Los Angeles.

The host Bruins came into Saturday’s matchup having lost each of its previous five matchups with the Trojans since Mick Cronin became the head coach in the 2019-20 campaign, including on buzzer-beaters in the last two regular-season finales.

UCLA (23-6, 15-5 Pac-12) built a lead of 12 points in the second half, but Isaiah Mobley’s three-point play capped a 9-0 run in the late second to pull the Trojans to within 70-68.

After USC (25-6, 14-6) cut the deficit to two, Cody Riley helped ensure this regular-season finale would not come down to another last-second shot. His turnaround jump shot in the lane with less than a minute left extended UCLA’s lead to four points.

On the ensuing possession, Drew Peterson drew a defender away to free up Max Agbonkpolo for a 3-point look in the corner, but Agbonkpolo stepped out of bounds. It was the last of USC’s 15 turnovers.

UCLA committed just one turnover the entire game.

USC had one last possession to cut into the gap after Johnny Juzang — making his return from a two-game absence due to an ankle injury — missed a pair of free throws. Reese Dixon-Waters 3-point attempt on the other end was no good, and Jules Bernard iced the win with three free throws down the stretch.

Bernard finished with 19 points, Juzang scored eight on 4-of-13 shooting from the floor, and Tyger Campbell scored nine points.

Mobley led USC with 20 points. He also grabbed eight rebounds. Peterson finished with 13 points, nine rebounds and six assists.

UCLA heads into next week’s Pac-12 tournament in Las Vegas as the #2 seed. USC is the #3 seed.
