LOS ANGELES (AP) - Courtney Jaco hit two 3-pointers during a 17-0 fourth-quarter run that sent USC to a 61-47 victory over California on Sunday.
The score was tied at 42-all with under eight minutes to play when a 3-pointer by Alexis Lloyd started the pivotal run that included four points each from Sadie Edwards and Temi Fagbenle.
The victory snapped a three-game losing streak for USC (15-5, 3-5 Pac-12). Cal (10-9, 1-7) has lost five straight for the first time since 2010-11 when the Bears lost six in a row.
Fagbenle led USC with 16 points, 12 in the second half. Edwards added 14 points and Kristen Simon had 10 points and 10 rebounds for sixth career double-double.
Penina Davidson scored 13 points to lead Cal with Mikayla Cowling adding 11. Kristine Anigwe, the nation’s second-highest scoring freshman at 21.2, scored 10 points to keep her season-long streak of double-figure games alive.
