LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jessica Cheeks made a 3-pointer with just under a minute remaining and hit two free throws with 13.8 seconds left Sunday to help Southern California beat No. 24 Arizona 68-66 Sunday for the Wildcats' second straight loss.
UCLA beat Arizona 87-68 Thursday night at Pauley Pavilion.
Cheeks came off the bench to lead the Trojans with 15 points and three steals. She didn't miss a shot, making three 3-pointers along with two field goals from inside the arc, as well as two foul shots.
Ebony Hoffman had 12 points, and Rometra Craig added 11 for the Trojans (14-9, 11-4 Pac-10).
Arizona lost despite shooting 56 percent (28-of-50) and outrebounding USC 36-28. The Trojans shot 39.3 percent but forced 28 turnovers while committing 18.
Cheeks' final 3-pointer gave the Trojans a 64-60 lead. The Wildcats made it close on Wheeler's 3-pointer as time expired. It was Arizona's only 3-pointer of the game in four attempts.
USC was 7-of-19 from beyond the arc.
