Josiah Turner, Kyle Fogg Lead Arizona Wildcats To Victory Over USC Trojans

The Arizona Wildcats needed to avoid the proverbial trap game on Thursday night against a struggling USC Trojans club with the UCLA Bruins looming on Saturday. Despite a slow start, the UA dominated the second half and went on to claim a 70-54 victory. Arizona claimed win No. 20 on Thursday night and improved to 11-5 in conference play.

Josiah Turner played his best game of the season and ended with 15 points, seven assists, three rebounds and two steals. The freshman point guard continues to show everyone why scouts drooled over him in high school. Kyle Fogg had a big night with 16 points and 12 rebounds, while Solomon Hill and Nick Johnson both had nine points.

The Trojans started off well and held a lead of eight points early, but the club went the final 7:50 in the first half without scoring a basket. Byron Wesley led all scorers with 18 points and point guard Maurice Jones added 10 points, six assists and seven rebounds. USC falls to 6-22 on the season and still just has one conference victory.

Arizona now has a quick turnaround before they welcome in the UCLA Bruins to McKale Center. Tipoff is set for noon on Saturday and CBS will air the game. The Wildcats will debut their new Nike Platinum uniforms.
