LOS ANGELES — Cassie Harberts scored 19 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead USC to a 55-45 win Friday over No. 12 Colorado on Friday night.

Harberts gave USC a 46-45 lead after converting two free throws with 3 minutes, 8 seconds to play. Brianna Barrett added a bucket and Harberts sunk three free throws and Desiree Bradley added two more free throws to seal the victory. USC outscored Colorado 11-0 over the final 4:01 of the game.

Bradley scored 11 points for the Trojans (9-5). The team shot 31 percent from the field overall and 76 percent from the line.

USC was dealt a blow in the first minute of the game as Trojans leading scorer Ariya Crook, who averages 16.3 points per game, left the game with a leg injury and did not return.

Brittany Wilson led Colorado (10-2) with 13 points and her twin sister Ashley added 12 points.

The Trojans snapped the Buffaloes nine-game regular season conference game winning streak — a run that started with a win over the Trojans on February 3, 2013.

Colorado fell to 3-2 on the road this season with its only other loss coming in a 69-62 setback against No. 7 Louisville two weeks ago. It was Colorado's first regular season non-conference loss in 33 games, a streak that dated back to the 2010-11 campaign.

Both teams shot poorly from the outset of the game, however the Trojans managed to build a 9-0 lead following two free throws by Desiree Bradley.

The Buffaloes missed their first 12 shots and didn't get on the board until Ashley Wilson's basket with 13:20 left in the first half. USC upped its lead to 17-5 after a basket by Harberts at the 9:05 mark.

Colorado countered with a 15-6 run over the final 8:30 of the half to cut the lead to 23-20 at the break. The Buffaloes' 20 points were their lowest first half point total of the season.

The Trojans shot 25.9 percent (7-27) in the first half and made 8 of 10 free throws. USC blocked nine shots in the opening half.

The Buffaloes made 7 of 33 shots (21.2 percent) and missed all four 3-point attempts in the first half.

Ashley Wilson led all scorers in the first half with seven points. Alexyz Vaioletama led the Trojans with six points and six rebounds in the opening 20 minutes.
