FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) The ending went pretty much just as planned for Southern Cal, after the Trojans had blown an 18-point lead.
Nick Rakocevic had a tip-in in the final second of Ethan Anderson's missed shot, after the USC senior post had also rebounded a missed free throw at the other end, and the Trojans beat TCU 80-78 on Friday night.
“That was great. Nick, we told him to inbound the ball or rebound it, depending on if he made or missed. We got the rebound,” coach Andy Enfield said. "Ethan got in the lane, made a good move and then Nick did a great job of just going. He's a terrific offensive rebounder and a great player. So he made just a big-time play.”
