Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Southern California has been a season-long enigma.
The quality club appeared on Wednesday night, leaving No. 11 Arizona in the dust.
Eric Wise scored 22 points and Byron Wesley contributed to the balanced attack with 18, as USC downed the Wildcats, 84-76, at the Galen Center.
After three losses in four games, USC ripped off four straight wins, including an overtime victory at UCLA, before dropping the two games prior to Wednesday's home date with Arizona.
The Trojans (13-15, 8-7 Pac-12) made only 35 percent of their shots in a 75-59 loss to UCLA last time out, but the normally inefficient outfit made 61.1 percent of their attempts Wednesday.
J.T. Terrell was 5-of-8 shooting for 14 points, Jio Fontan made 5-of-11 shots for 12 points with nine assists and Aaron Fuller missed only once in six attempts for 12 points off the bench.
Solomon Hill led Arizona (23-5, 11-5) with 21 points, six assists and five steals, while Kevin Parrom donated 16 points and Mark Lyons added 14 in the loss. Lyons did most of his damage from the foul line, as he shot just 1- for-9. The Wildcats saw their three-game winning streak come to an end.
