Nikola Vucevic Leads USC To 65-57 Upset Over No. 10 Arizona

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Nikola Vucevic scored 25 points with 12 rebounds to lead Southern California to a 65-57 upset of No. 10 Arizona on Thursday, snapping the Wildcats' eight-game winning streak. Jio Fontan added 21 points for the Trojans (16-12, 8-7 Pac-10), who have won three games in a row for the first time this season. Alex Stephenson posted a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Jesse Perry scored 12 points and Kevin Parrom had 10 to lead a threadbare offense for Arizona, which shot just 36 percent from the floor for its lowest point total of the season. The conference-leading Wildcats (23-5, 12-3) hadn't lost since falling at Washington on January 20.

USC has beaten Arizona in five of their last six home games in Los Angeles. The victory was USC's third win over a ranked team this season. The Trojans host Arizona State on Saturday. For more information on tonight's game, be sure to read Conquest Chronicles.
