Jan. 8, 2012
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Maurice Jones scored 14 points, making all seven of his free throws, for USC (5-12, 0-4), which lost 57-46 to Arizona Sunday.
The Trojans shot a season-low 29 percent from the floor.
Jesse Perry scored 20 points, Solomon Hill added 11, and Arizona defeated Southern California to salvage a weekend split on the Wildcats' first Pac-12 road trip of the season.
Arizona (11-5, 2-1 Pac-12) dominated the first half, outscoring USC 32-16, and led by 20 early in the second half, never letting the Trojans get closer than 10 points. Kyle Fogg added 10 points despite playing most of the second half with three fouls.
The Trojans were 1 of 15 from 3-point range, with Jones hitting their lone 3 midway through the second half as they cut their deficit to 10. From there, the Wildcats scored six straight to make it 53-37
