Stanford, Calif. (AP) - Jarrett Mann made one free throw with 10.6 seconds left and Stanford stopped several last-second chances on the defensive end to beat embattled Southern California 54-53 on Wednesday night and snap the Trojans' eight-game winning streak.

Dwight Lewis scored 22 points for USC (10-5, 2-1 Pac-10), which took the court three days after learning from first-year coach Kevin O'Neill that the university had imposed sanctions on the program for recruiting violations involving former player O.J. Mayo. That includes a ban on postseason play this year and the Pac-10 tournament. Mayo allegedly received improper cash and gifts while at USC.

In addition, 12th-year USC radio play-by-play voice Rory Markas died Monday at age 54. A moment of silence was held for Markas before tipoff.

Landry Fields had 14 points, eight rebounds and five assists for the Cardinal (7-7, 1-1).
