Watch: WSU-USC Highlights | Coach Bennett Postgame | Baynes-Rochestie-Harmeling-Thompson Postgame

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Daniel Hackett scored 14 points and Taj Gibson added 12 points and 12 rebounds as Southern California edged Washington State 46-44 Saturday in a Pac-10 game.

The Trojans (13-6, 4-3) rebounded from a 78-73 loss to Washington Thursday night in Seattle.

Freshman Klay Thompson had 15 points and Aron Baynes had 12 points and nine rebounds for the Cougars (11-8, 3-4).

With 49 seconds to go, Marcus Johnson made a jump shot to give USC a 42-41 lead and the Trojans scored a basket on a Cougars' turnover with 15 seconds left for a 3-point lead.

Thompson missed a layup that would have tied the score with five seconds left.

Washington State led 19-18 at halftime and was ahead most of the second half, holding a 5-point lead with five minutes to play.

Taylor Rochestie, the Cougars' leading scorer, didn't score in the opening half and contributed only six points.
