LOS ANGELES (AP) - Dwight Lewis scored 19 points as Southern California pulled away from Georgia Tech at the start of the second half to win 76-57 Monday night.

Freshman DeMar DeRozan had 17 points while Taj Gibson and Daniel Hackett each added 15 as the Trojans (8-3) improved to 8-0 at home for the first time since the 2001-02 season.

Lewis Clinch scored 25 points for the Yellow Jackets (8-2), who shot 35 percent.
