    PULLMAN, Wash. -- Daniel Hackett scored 14 points, including four free throws in the final minute, and, Taj Gibson added 12 points and 12 rebounds as Southern California edged Washington State 46-44 Saturday in a Pac-10 game.

    The Trojans (13-6, 4-3) rebounded from a 78-73 loss to Washington Thursday night in Seattle.

    Freshman Klay Thompson had 15 points and, Aron Baynes had 12 points and nine rebounds for the Cougars (11-8, 3-4).

    With 49 seconds to go, Marcus Johnson made a jump shot to give USC the lead for good at 42-41. Hackett sank two free throws with 15 seconds left for a 3-point lead for the Trojans. He then added a free throw with 12 seconds remaining and another free throw with five seconds left to put USC up 46-41.

    Thompson then missed a layup that would have cut the Trojans' lead to 46-43.

    Taylor Rocheste, the Cougars' leading scorer, didn't score in the opening half and contributed only six points. He made a 3-pointer as time expired.

    Washington State led 19-18 at halftime and was ahead most of the second half, holding a 38-33 with 5:28 to play.
