Recap: Arizona State vs. USC

Temple, AZ (Sports Network) - Evan Gordon poured in 28 points while Carrick Felix and Jonathan Gilling both registered double-doubles to help the Arizona State Sun Devils pick up a 98-93 victory over the USC Trojans in a Pac-12 overtime thriller at Wells Fargo Arena.

Felix finished with 16 points and 10 boards while Gilling tallied 13 points, 11 boards, and six assists for Arizona State (15-4, 4-2 Pac-12). Jahii Carson also made his mark by producing 21 points and eight assists to help the Sun Devils avoid a third loss in a row.

Jin Fontan paced USC (8-12, 3-4) with 25 points, J.T. Terrell scored 20, and Byron Wesley finished with 15 points. Eric Wise notched a double-double of 19 points and 10 boards for USC, which dropped a decision for the second time in three games.

ASU went up, 37-29, with 3:45 left in the opening stanza, but the Trojans rallied back and Wise drained a 3-pointer in the closing seconds to send the game into the intermission knotted up at 42-42. Both sides scored 11 points off of turnovers before the break.

The second period was almost a mirror image of the first, as the Sun Devils held an 80-71 lead with only 2:51 left in regulation. Once again, USC staged a comeback. Felix missed one of two free throws with eight seconds showing on the game clock, which put ASU ahead, 85-82, as possession returned to the visitors. Fontan picked up his dribble at the top of the key, and after a series of pivots, sent the game into overtime by sinking a game-tying trey just before the buzzer.

The Sun Devils tallied seven second chance points in the extra session to escape with the win.

The hard-fought contest was reflected in the rebounding battle, with ASU holding a narrow 40-38 edge on the glass.
