USC posts historical rout of rival UCLA, 67-46
LOS ANGELES (AP)—Dwight Lewis hit five 3-pointers while scoring 24 points, and Southern California rolled to its biggest victory ever at its archrivals’ hallowed Pauley Pavilion, beating UCLA 67-46 Saturday.
Nikola Vucevic had 19 points and six rebounds for the Trojans (11-6, 3-2 Pac-10), who earned their ninth win in 11 games while bouncing back from two Bay Area losses (Stanford and California) with their biggest victory at Pauley since it opened in 1965—and their biggest win over UCLA anywhere since the 1940s.
USC, which already banned itself from postseason play this spring, earned its first road victory of the season with this one-sided win over the rebuilding Bruins (7-10, 2-3), who were dominated defensively and outrebounded 37-22.
Malcolm Lee and Michael Roll lead the Bruin with 12 points each.
