Short-handed USC needs two overtimes to top UNC Asheville in NIT

Monday vs. Western Kentucky, 8:30 p.m. PST, Galen Center. TV: ESPN2 — The Trojans will play their remaining games without their top two scorers, Metu and Bennie Boatwright, who averaged 15.7 and 13.6 points per game, respectively. Boatwright has been sidelined since last month because of a knee injury. McLaughlin, who was averaging 12.4 points and 7.5 assists, almost doubled those numbers on Tuesday night.
