USC 61, Washington St. 51

Another win for the Trojans at Galen Center to help them in the Pac-10 standings. It was a slow tempo game as to be expected but USC still ended up shooting 42% for the game. Dwight Lewis had 17, while Taj Gibson looked like his old self with 16 points and 8 rebounds. Nikola Vucevic got the start due to matchups and came through with 8 points in 26 minutes, coming off of a lower back injury. DeMar DeRozen had a quiet night with 8 points but Tim Floyd praised his defense. Taylor Rochestie had 16 for the Cougars who fell to .500 on the season and 5-9 in the Pac-10 while USC improves to 16-9 and 7-6 in the Pac-10.
