USC led by four with just over five minutes left in the game. But Stanford locked in on defense and ended the game on a 16-6 run to take the win.

The Trojans (13-1, 3-1) were held to 6-of-21 (28.6 percent) shooting from beyond the arc. Isaiah Mobley led USC with 16 points and Boogie Ellis added 14 points but shot 4-of-11 from the field.

Stanford will be back in action on Thursday against Washington State. USC will also be playing that day against Oregon State. The Trojans and Cardinal will meet again on Jan. 27 at USC.

No. 1 Baylor is now the only remaining undefeated team in Division I at 15-0. The Bears are taking on No. 19 Texas Tech on Tuesday.
