LOS ANGELES -- Turnovers and other miscues doomed Southern Californias chances of repeating its recent success against Arizona when the Wildcats are ranked. Denis Potvin Jersey . Brandon Ashley and T.J. McConnell each scored a season-high 19 points and the No. 1 Wildcats beat Southern Cal 73-53 Sunday night to improve to 17-0 for the best start in school history. The Trojans had won four of the last six meetings with Arizona when it was ranked. That success didnt mean much when USC (9-7, 0-3 Pac-12) was held to a season-low in points, got to the free throw line only eight times and committed 18 turnovers. "We definitely turned the ball over too many times and had too many possessions where we didnt score," Trojans coach Andy Enfield said. "Against a good team like Arizona, you have to convert." Byron Wesley scored 18 points and reserve Strahinja Gavrilovic added a career-high 10 points to lead USC, which has lost three straight and four of its last six. The Trojans stayed close most of the game and trailed 48-43 with nine minutes remaining, but Arizona outscored the USC 25-10 the rest of the way to turn the close game into a rout and improve to 4-0 in conference play. "We had chances to make plays and we didnt in transition," USC guard PeShon Howard said. "We have to put together a 40-minute game. Tonight we probably did 30 minutes. There are a lot of positives to take from this. We battled the No. 1 team in the country." Arizona never trailed in the second half to secure win number 17, breaking the previous school record for best start of 16-0 set by the 1931-32 Wildcats. "Were really excited about it, we really are," Arizona coach Sean Miller said. "We talked about it and its something I think all of us will really cherish. Any school record you break at Arizona in the basketball program is a real record because of the great tradition that we have." Nick Johnson chipped in 15 points and Aaron Gordon had 12 for the Wildcats in the second straight game theyve had four players reach double figures in scoring. Arizona didnt outrebound its opponent for the first time this season, with each team getting 30 boards apiece. But the Wildcats shot 46.6 per cent (27 of 58) from the field, including 50 per cent in the second half, to pick up the victory. Ashley shot 7 of 10 from the field and McConnell was 7 of 12, including 5 of 7 from 3-point range, to pace the Wildcats. "Usually I try to set up the offence and get other people the ball, but tonight they were playing off me and I just hit shots," said McConnell, who also had six assists. "If they dont think I can shoot Im going to try and prove them wrong, and if they close out Ill go around them and get other people the ball." Arizona completed its first road sweep of the conferences Los Angeles schools since 2004-05, having beaten UCLA 79-75 Thursday night. USC was playing its first game against a No. 1 ranked team since February 2004, when they fell to Stanford 76-67. The Trojans last victory over a top-ranked team came nearly 44 years ago when they beat UCLA 87-86 on March 6, 1970. Lakers guard Nick Young, a USC alum, and forward Jordan Hill, an Arizona alum, were in attendance together at the Galen Center. They were joined by former Lakers forward Luke Walton (Arizona alum) and former USC and NFL quarterback Matt Leinart. Adam Pelech Jersey .

Now, it is instead a suspended game that will resume at 4:05 p. Clark Gillies Jersey . The stakes were higher, the competition more fierce and the atmosphere was that of a playoff game - something the young, upstart Raptors have five weeks to better prepare themselves for or the result will be eerily similar.LUXEMBOURG - Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark struggled to a 6-3, 7-6 (2) win over local favourite Mandy Minella to reach the second round of the Luxembourg Open on Tuesday. Second-seeded Sloane Stephens of the United States made lighter work of her day as she beat 2009 champion and Swiss wild card Timea Bacsinszky 6-3, 6-3.
