The Women of Troy split their weekend series in the desert against the Arizona schools to move to 17-7 on the season. Guards Sadie Edwards and Courtney Jaco carried USC on career-high scoring nights with Jaco racking up 24 points in the Arizona win and Edwards leading all scorers with 26 points in the loss to No. 8 Arizona State.
Jaco's 24 points, which sparked the Trojans', 67-57, victory over the Wildcats, came off of four three-pointers and a 10-point second quarter, while Temi Fagbenle added another double-digit outing and was one rebound shy of a double-double. The aggressive USC defense also contributed to the victory, forcing 21 turnovers and finished with 12 steals.
