    TUCSON, Ariz. - USC's Kristen Clark scored a career-high 25 points and the Trojans set a team record for 3-pointers made in a game in their 87-72 Pacific 10 Conference win Thursday nigh at the McKale Center.

    Clark, who made nine of her 14 shots, ended the night with three assists and four steals.

    Meanwhile, Tina Thompson continued her solid production with game-high 26 points. She finished the night 11-of-12 from the free-throw line and 14 rebounds.

    The Trojans (10-4) shot nearly 70 percent from 3-point range in the first half (69.2 percent) and finished the game shooting 67 percent from beyond the arc, 12-for-18.

    Arizona (12-3) was lead by Adia Barnes who finished with 18 points.

    USC held just a one-point lead at halftime (40-39), but pulled away in the second half, outscoring host Arizona 47-33.

    Next up for the Trojans is Arizona State Saturday.
