Arizona State 60, USC 57, 2:33 left
USC continues to make runs at Arizona State and Arizona State continues to stave off those runs. Taj Gibson's slam with 8:44 left brought USC to within 55-53 but Arizona State has fought off the Trojans, keyed by big shots from Ty Abbott and Jeff Pendergraph, who has 20 points. James Harden has just nine, dispelling those notions that Harden has to have a big game for ASU to fare well.
