    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Garrett Jackson scored a career-high 16 points and Southern California led all the way in beating Utah 62-45 Saturday night.

    The win was the Trojans' first Pac-12 win and snapped their nine-game losing streak.

    Maurice Jones added 16 points and Greg Allen and freshman Byron Wesley had nine points each for the Trojans (6-16, 1-8). Wesley added seven assists.

    Dijon Farr led the Utes (5-16, 2-7) with 12 points and eight rebounds. Chris Hines and Jason Washburn added 10 points each in the matchup.

    Coming off a 27-point loss to UCLA two days ago, Utah fell to 0-11 on the road this season, although the Utes remain ahead of last-place USC in the conference standings.
