LOS ANGELES -- The Arizona State women's basketball team came back from a 16-point deficit to defeat USC 60-53 on Friday night, giving longtime head coach Charli Turner Thorne her 300th win at ASU. Turner Thorne, in her 16th year with the program, is just the third coach in Pac-12 history to reach the 300 wins at one school, with the others being Tara VanDerveer at Stanford and Chris Gobrecht at Washington. The Sun Devils (11-8 overall, 3-4 Pac-12), who trailed 36-20 at the half, dominated over the final 20 minutes, outscoring the Trojans 40-17. Still, ASU did not have the lead until Haley Videckis hit two free throws to put the Sun Devils on top 53-52 with 1:20 left. USC (7-11 overall, 4-3 Pac-12) did not make a shot over the final 5:42 and scored just four points in the last 10 minutes of the game. ASU did not have a player in double figures but put together a balanced effort offensively, with Janae Fulcher and Promise Amukumara each finishing with nine points. The Sun Devils got 25 points from their bench, including seven from Videckis, while the Trojans got just eight from theirs. Videckis also finished with six rebounds, while reserve guard Elisha Davis contributed six points and six assists. ASU particularly dominated inside, outscoring USC in the paint 34-20 overall and 20-2 in the second half thanks to Fulcher and center Joy Burke, who finished with eight points, four rebounds, two assists and a block.
