Las Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Jio Fontan and Aaron Fuller each scored 15 points as the USC Trojans outlasted the UCLA Bruins in overtime, 75-71, in a Pac-12 Conference showdown at Pauley Pavilion.

Eric Wise tallied a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds for USC (9-13, 4-5 Pac-12), while Byron Wesley and J.T. Terrell netted 10 points apiece. Fonton also dished out six assists for the Trojans, who had lost their previous two contests.
