USC ends 9-game skid with 62-45 win over Utah 

Garrett Jackson scored a career-high 16 points and Southern California led all the way in beating Utah 62-45 Saturday night to win its first Pac-12 game and snap a nine-game losing streak.

Maurice Jones added 16 points and Greg Allen and freshman Byron Wesley had nine points each for the Trojans (6-16, 1-8), whose skid was the school's longest since it dropped 13 in a row during the 1989 season. Wesley added seven assists.

Dijon Farr led the Utes (5-16, 2-7) with 12 points and eight rebounds. Chris Hines and Jason Washburn added 10 points each in the matchup of the league's two worst teams.

Coming off a 27-point loss to UCLA two days ago, Utah fell to 0-11 on the road this season, although the Utes remain ahead of last-place USC in the conference standings.
