PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Byron Wesley scored 20 second half points — ending the night with 31 — as Southern California beat Washington State 79-68 on Thursday to end a 10-game losing streak.

Southern California (11-19, 2-15 Pac-12) outscored Washington State 40-20 in the paint and out-rebounded the Cougars 40-34.

DaVonte Lacy had 20 points and 10 rebounds for Washington State (9-20, 2-15 Pac-12) to lead four Cougars in double figures.

WSU held a 36-35 half time edge and started the second half with back-to-back 3-pointers, jumping out to a nine-point lead early in the second half. The Trojans erased that lead with a 16-2 run to go ahead 51-46 with 12:46 left.

Washington State went cold from the field from that point forward. The Trojans extended the run to 21-6 run for a 67-52 lead with 6:45 remaining. WSU hit only two from the field in the stretch.
