LOS ANGELES -- Turnovers and other miscues doomed Southern Californias chances of repeating its recent success against Arizona when the Wildcats are ranked. Portland Trail Blazers Shirts . Brandon Ashley and T.J. McConnell each scored a season-high 19 points and the No. 1 Wildcats beat Southern Cal 73-53 Sunday night to improve to 17-0 for the best start in school history. The Trojans had won four of the last six meetings with Arizona when it was ranked. That success didnt mean much when USC (9-7, 0-3 Pac-12) was held to a season-low in points, got to the free throw line only eight times and committed 18 turnovers. "We definitely turned the ball over too many times and had too many possessions where we didnt score," Trojans coach Andy Enfield said. "Against a good team like Arizona, you have to convert." Byron Wesley scored 18 points and reserve Strahinja Gavrilovic added a career-high 10 points to lead USC, which has lost three straight and four of its last six. The Trojans stayed close most of the game and trailed 48-43 with nine minutes remaining, but Arizona outscored the USC 25-10 the rest of the way to turn the close game into a rout and improve to 4-0 in conference play. "We had chances to make plays and we didnt in transition," USC guard PeShon Howard said. "We have to put together a 40-minute game. Tonight we probably did 30 minutes. There are a lot of positives to take from this. We battled the No. 1 team in the country." Arizona never trailed in the second half to secure win number 17, breaking the previous school record for best start of 16-0 set by the 1931-32 Wildcats. "Were really excited about it, we really are," Arizona coach Sean Miller said. "We talked about it and its something I think all of us will really cherish. Any school record you break at Arizona in the basketball program is a real record because of the great tradition that we have." Nick Johnson chipped in 15 points and Aaron Gordon had 12 for the Wildcats in the second straight game theyve had four players reach double figures in scoring. Arizona didnt outrebound its opponent for the first time this season, with each team getting 30 boards apiece. But the Wildcats shot 46.6 per cent (27 of 58) from the field, including 50 per cent in the second half, to pick up the victory. Ashley shot 7 of 10 from the field and McConnell was 7 of 12, including 5 of 7 from 3-point range, to pace the Wildcats. "Usually I try to set up the offence and get other people the ball, but tonight they were playing off me and I just hit shots," said McConnell, who also had six assists. "If they dont think I can shoot Im going to try and prove them wrong, and if they close out Ill go around them and get other people the ball." Arizona completed its first road sweep of the conferences Los Angeles schools since 2004-05, having beaten UCLA 79-75 Thursday night. USC was playing its first game against a No. 1 ranked team since February 2004, when they fell to Stanford 76-67. The Trojans last victory over a top-ranked team came nearly 44 years ago when they beat UCLA 87-86 on March 6, 1970. Lakers guard Nick Young, a USC alum, and forward Jordan Hill, an Arizona alum, were in attendance together at the Galen Center. They were joined by former Lakers forward Luke Walton (Arizona alum) and former USC and NFL quarterback Matt Leinart. Portland Trail Blazers Store . Or take a relaxing vacation somewhere warm.

At least 90 players who had college eligibility remaining are expected to enter the draft, shattering last years record number of 73. "Its a humongous number, so the first reaction is it makes you step back a little bit," said NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah, a former scout with the Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles.(SportsNetwork.com) - Zdeno Chara and the Boston Bruins are ready to get back to work on Wednesday, as they emerge from the Olympic break to visit the Buffalo Sabres at First Niagara Center. You can catch the action live on TSN2 at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. Chara created a minor stir by leaving the Bruins early so he could take on the duties of flag bearer for his native Slovakia at the opening ceremony of the Sochi Olympics. Boston split two games (1-0-1) without Chara in the lineup, but the reigning Eastern Conference champions still entered the break with a seven-point lead over Tampa Bay for the Atlantic Division lead. While Chara and Team Slovakia were knocked out in the qualification playoffs by the rival Czechs, the Bruins did have a representative win a medal of every kind in Sochi. Patrice Bergeron won gold with Team Canada, fellow Bruins forward Loui Eriksson picked up a silver for Sweden and goaltender Tuukka Rask earned a bronze medal with Finland. Now the trick for Bostons Olympians is to try and adapt quickly to the grind of the NHL season, and to get back their sleep schedule back to normal. "Im sure were going to feel it for a few days; theres no secret (to it)," said Chara after Mondays practice in Boston. "Youre on anywhere from a nine to twelve-hour time difference and you know, you felt it today. I felt it for sure today, a little bit of jet lag and its going to probably take a few days. Portland Trail Blazers Gear. " Boston won three of its last four games before the Olympics and closed its pre-break schedule with a 7-2 rout of Ottawa on Feb. 8.

Boston is 2-1-0 against the Sabres this season with two meetings left in the season series. The Bs have three wins over their last five trips to Buffalo. The Sabres, who are last in the NHL with only 40 points on the season, had lost four straight before returning from the Olympic break with a 3-2 win over visiting Carolina on Tuesday. Christian Ehrhoff scored the winner with 43.4 seconds to play to lift the Sabres in the NHLs first tilt after the Winter Games. Ehrhoff also scored the first goal of the game, while Tyler Ennis added a marker for the Sabres. Ryan Miller stopped 36 shots to secure the victory. "It had to do a lot with Miller again," Ehrhoff said. "He made some huge saves for us. He was very sharp. He was our best player again tonight." Buffalo is opening its post-Olympics schedule on a three-game homestand. The Sabres, who are 10-17-5 at First Niagara this season, had lost eight straight as the host before posting Tuesdays win over the Hurricanes. ' ' '
