3 keys from Utah's 74-58 college men's basketball loss to USC

SALT LAKE CITY — Southern Cal used a late run to end Utah's five-game winning streak. The Trojans rolled past the Utes 75-58 at the Huntsman Center Saturday afternoon to sweep the season series.

Turning point: Elijah Stewart's dunk with 8:42 to go in the second half kicked off a 16-0 run. That opened up a 71-49 lead for the Trojans.

The hero: USC's Jordan Usher scored 14 points on 4 of 5 shooting from the 3-point line.

3 keys:

• The Utes struggled shooting the ball, hitting just 5 of 21 3-pointers while shooting just 40.7 percent from the field.

• David Collette was the only Utah player to reach double figures with 14 points.

• With one game remaining in the Pac-12 season, the Utes (18-10, 10-7) fall back into a tie for fourth place with Stanford.
