LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Norman Powell scored 10 of his 21 points during a 3 ½ minute span of the second half, Jordan Adams had 17 points and eight rebounds, and UCLA completed a season sweep of USC with an 83-73 victory on Saturday night.

Kyle Anderson had 15 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists for UCLA (18-5, 7-3 Pac-12), helping the Bruins beat their archrivals for the seventh time in the last eight meetings.

Byron Wesley had 27 points, eight rebounds and four assists for USC (10-13, 1-9). The Trojans have lost four in a row and nine of 10, all against conference teams, following a 9-4 start against non-conference opponents. Two of those losses were to Stanford and Oregon State, marking the first back-to-back overtime defeats in school history.
