    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jio Fontan and Aaron Fuller scored 15 points each and USC defeated UCLA 75-71 in overtime on Wednesday night, ending a four-game skid against the Trojans' crosstown rival.

    Eric Wise added 12 points and 11 rebounds, J.T. Terrell and Byron Wesley each had 10 points for the USC (9-13, 4-5 Pac-12), which held the Bruins to 38 percent shooting while snapping a two-game losing streak.

    The Trojans improved to 2-3 under interim coach Bob Cantu.

    UCLA's Shabazz Muhammad scored 22 points but missed two 3-pointers in the final 1:14 of overtime. The Bruins were 2 of 19 from 3-point range.

    Travis Wear, who returned after missing one game because of a concussion, added 16 points and Jordan Adams had 13 for the Bruins.

    UCLA (16-6, 6-3) has dropped three of their last four and are in danger of slipping out of second place in the league after losing their only game this week.
