Trojans Fall to UCLA, 101-84
LOS ANGELES - Promising USC freshman Jeff Trepagnier, Kevin Augustine and Greg Lakey - building blocks for the future of Coach Henry Bibby's program - provided bright spots in a 101-84 loss at cross-town rival UCLA in front of 12,327 at Pauley Pavilion.
Trepagnier, an exciting 6-4 swingman from Compton, scored a career-high 18 points, recorded 4 steals and as many rebounds.
Jeff put on a dazzling display early in the second half when he threw down a show-stopping jam and minutes later stole the ball at midcourt and quickly burried a 3-pointer.
Senior Kris Johnson scored a game-high 20 to lead the 9th ranked Bruins. UCLA (14-3 5-2) has won the last 7 meetings.
Trojan senior Gary Williams scored 15 points. Sophomore Jarvis Turner added 12 and a team-high 7 rebounds.
After a weekend off, SC (6-11 2-5) hosts Washington the 29th and WSU the 31st.
