Trojan hoarse, USC snaps Arizona basketball’s eight-game win streakby Christopher C. Wuensch on Feb. 25, 2011, under In Their Own Words, Sports
Post-game interviews are boring. The best reactions come after the microphones, Polo shirts and repetitive questions have all exited the locker room.
Tell us what you really think, Wildcats.
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA 65, ARIZONA 57
Southern California’s Nikola Vucevic scored a game-high 25 points as the Trojans (16-12, 8-7 PAC-10) upset No. 10 Arizona (23-5, 12-3) by a 65-57 score in Los Angeles.
The Wildcats, who finished the night with a combined two assists, saw their eight-game winning streak snapped.
UCLA’s win over Arizona State on Thursday, cuts Arizona’s lead atop the PAC-10 to one game heading into Saturday’s showdown between the Wildcats and the Bruins.
