    SAN DIEGO (AP) - Jamaal Franklin scored 14 points to lead San Diego State (4-1), but a last minute basket downed the Trojans on Thursday night, 56-54.

    Xavier Thames scored 12 points, including the game-winning basket with 1.8 seconds remaining, to give San Diego State a 56-54 victory over USC on Thursday night at Viejas Arena in San Diego before a sellout crowd of 12,414.

    Maurice Jones banked in a long three-pointer to tie the game at 54-54 with 6.8 seconds to go.

    Thames took the inbounds pass and dribbled the length of the floor to score on a layup.

    Jones led USC (1-2) with 15 points, and Garrett Jackson added a career-high 13.
