LOS ANGELES -- Taj Gibson, recovered from a bout with pneumonia earlier this week, scored 20 points Thursday night, leading Southern California to a 70-69 victory over Stanford.
The Cardinal had a chance to win, but Lawrence Hill's baseline jumper went in-and-out as time expired.
Gibson, treated for pneumonia Monday and Tuesday, shot 9-of-12. As a team, the Trojans shot 53.7 percent to Stanford's 45.6 percent.
Fields scored seven straight Stanford points to give the Cardinal a 52-46 lead. Hackett then scored five points during a 9-2 run that put the Trojans on top 55-54 with 10 minutes left.
USC extended its lead to 62-56 before a three-point play by Goods and a 3-pointer by Hill helped the Cardinal draw within one with 3:59 to play, but that's as close as they would get.
