Feb 29, 2020
Big nights from seniors Jonah Mathews (23 points), Daniel Utomi (19 points, 10 rebounds), and Nick Rakocevic (13 points, 11 rebounds) allowed USC men's basketball to survive a late charge from Arizona State and escape with a 71-61 victory in Los Angeles on Sunday. After going down early, the Sun Devils fought hard and used a 11-0 run late in the second half to cut USC's lead to one point. ASU's Remy Martin was a major part of the Sun Devils' comeback bid with 22 points. But the Trojan upperclassmen's resolve and production allowed USC to eke out the win.
