Trojans Lose Early-Season Heart-Breaker in Double-OT 64-61
Nov. 15, 2011
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Bo Spencer scored 22 points and Nebraska rallied in both overtimes to beat Southern California 64-61 for the third straight time on Monday night.
Spencer, a former LSU guard, had a 3-pointer in the first extra session and keyed an 8-0 run in the second with a jumper in the paint for newest Big Ten member Nebraska (2-0).
Maurice Jones scored 18 points for the Trojans (1-1), but his shot to win at the end of the first overtime bounced off the rim.
Spencer then hit a pair of free throws and Jones' high-arcing jumper missed as time expired.
Playing in his hometown, Brandon Richardson added 12 points before fouling out and Jorge Brian Diaz had 10 for the Cornhuskers.
