“Everybody came out with tremendous intensity and a lot of energy,” shooting guard J.T. Terrell said. “We knew we needed this win to separate ourselves (in the conference).”
With the victory, USC (11-13, 6-5) is now tied with Cal, Stanford and Colorado for fourth place. Perhaps more important, all four teams are only two games out of first place.
“Right now we’re just playing,” Terrell said. “No leash. No limits.”
