    LOS ANGELES -- Brock Motum scored 16 of his 27 points in the second half and Washington State withstood a late rally to beat Southern California 43-38 on Saturday.

    Motum hit 12 of 21 shots as the Cougars (15-15, 7-11 Pac-12) held a 30-10 scoring advantage in the paint and 36-25 rebounding edge in picking up just their second conference road win.

    Maurice Jones scored 11 points to lead USC (6-25, 1-17), which closed the regular season with a ninth straight loss to sit at the bottom of the league standings.

    The Trojans trailed by 17 points when they came alive late. Alexis Moore capped a 16-2 run with a corner 3-pointer to pull the Trojans within 41-38 with 1:57 remaining.

    Washington State went without a basket for the final 9:09 of the contest.
