LOS ANGELES (AP) Bryce Alford scored 23 points, including five 3s, Tony Parker added 22 and UCLA defeated USC 85-74 Wednesday night to help the Bruins lock up the No. 4 seed in the Pac-12 tournament next week.
Kevon Looney had 13 points and 13 rebounds for the Bruins (19-12, 11-7 Pac-12), who ended the regular season on a three-game winning streak. They finished with a 9-0 mark in league games at home for the first time since 2006-07, and went 16-1 at home overall, losing only to ranked Gonzaga.
Kaitin Reinhardt scored 22 points, including five 3-pointers, to lead the Trojans (11-19, 3-15). They also wrapped up the regular season, having won one more league game than they did a year ago.
The Trojans tried to hang in after trailing by 12 early in the second half. Five times they cut their deficit to eight, but never got any closer.
