Dec. 1, 2008
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Dwight Lewis scored a career-high 26 points and Southern California rallied over the final eight minutes to hold off San Francisco 74-69 Monday night.
The Trojans (5-2) remained undefeated in four games at Galen Center, but they needed a game-ending 21-15 spurt to do so. Daniel Hackett added 18 points, DeMar DeRozan 11 and Taj Gibson grabbed 13 rebounds.
Dior Lowhorn scored 15 of his 23 points in the first half for the Dons (5-2), who were playing USC for the first time in 37 years. Blake Wallace and Kwame Vaughn added 13 points each. The Dons made 10 3-pointers, one off their season high, which helped them take a 12-point lead in the first half.
