Trojans Win Pac-10 Tournament, Headed for Third Straight Big Dance

March 14, 2009

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Daniel Hackett hit the tying and go-ahead free throws with 42 seconds remaining and Southern California held on for a 66-63 victory over No. 23 Arizona State on Saturday to win the Pac-10 tournament championship.

Freshman DeMar DeRozan scored 25 points, Hackett added 19 and Dwight Lewis 13 for the sixth-seeded Trojans (21-12), who overcame a 15-point halftime deficit to become the lowest seed to win the tourney.

James Harden, the Pac-10 player of the year, missed a free throw, a layup and a 3-pointer in the final 50 seconds for the fourth-seeded Sun Devils (24-9). They were led by Jeff Pendergraph with 20 points and Derek Glasser with 16 in the school's first appearance in the title game.
