Southern California beats Boston College 75-71

Southern California beats Boston College 75-71

Freshman Elijah Stewart is already in the USC record books, going 10 for 10 from the field against Boston College on Sunday to tie a school record. Coach Andy Enfield is equally impressed with what his freshman guard did when he wasn't shooting.

''When you go 10 for 10 from the field, it's a pretty good game,'' Enfield said after Stewart was perfect from the floor, adding four rebounds and two blocked shots to help the Trojans beat BC 75-71. ''But he did some things today he couldn't do a month ago.''

Stewart's perfect 10 shooting performance tied Taj Gibson, who also went 10 for 10 against Boston College in the NCAA tournament on March 20, 2009. Nikola Jovanovic added 16 points and nine rebounds for USC, which had never played in Chestnut Hill before.
The Trojans (7-4) won for the fifth time in six games, bouncing back from an overtime loss to Army last week.

Aaron Brown had 18 points for BC (6-4), which trailed by nine with 22 seconds left before scoring seven straight points in only 11 seconds. Olivier Hanlan had 15 points and eight assists, but he missed a 3-pointer that could have made it a one-point game in the final seconds.

The Trojans led 72-63 with 22 seconds left when BC rallied. Patrick Heckmann hit a 3-pointer, and Hanlan stole the ball in the backcourt and made a layup. Katin Reinhardt made 1 of 2 free throws, then Brown made a 3 to make it a two-point game.

Reinhardt made two free throws with 11 seconds left, and Hanlan missed a 3-pointer with five seconds left that could have cut the deficit to one point.
''They out hustled us, which hasn't happened to us,'' BC coach Jim Christian said. ''That's our only chance to win - against anybody, not just USC.''
