LOS ANGELES (AP) J.T. Terrell scored 18 points and Eric Wise had 12 as USC defeated Washington 71-60 on Sunday night.

The Trojans (11-13, 6-5 Pac-12) never trailed in winning their third game in a row. Omar Oraby scored nine points and Dewayne Dedmon had eight points and nine rebounds.

Wise completed a three-point play for a 65-58 lead and Terrell and Jio Fontan each sank a pair of free throws down the stretch for USC.

Scott Suggs scored all 16 of his points in the second half to lead Washington but the Huskies (13-11, 5-6) lost for the sixth time in seven games. Washington made only 4 of 14 free-throw attempts - and 1 of 6 in the second half.

Abdul Gaddy had 12 points and Aziz N'Diaye had 10 points and 12 rebounds. C.J. Wilcox, the Pac-12's fourth-leading scorer, was held scoreless in the second half and finished with eight points.
