PACIFIC 10 CONFERENCE

Arizona (10-18, 4-12) at USC (15-10, 9-6), FSN, 1 p.m. -- If USC needs at least 18 victories to attract an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, as Coach Mark Trakh has suggested, this is probably a must-win game for the Trojans. Arizona has won three of its last five games but was a 77-68 loser against USC last month at Tucson.
