Cassie Harberts scored 19 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead USC to a 55-45 win over No. 12 Colorado on Friday night in Los Angeles.
Harberts gave USC a 46-45 lead by converting two free throws with 3:08 to play. Brianna Barrett added a bucket, Harberts hit three free throws and Desiree Bradley added two more free throws to seal the victory. USC (9-5, 2-0 Pac-12) outscored Colorado 11-0 over the final 4:01.
USC's leading scorer Ariya Crook, who averages 16.3 points per game, left in the first minute of the game with a leg injury and did not return.

Washington State 85, Arizona State 78: Lia Galdeira scored 27 points as the Cougars (7-6, 1-0 Pac-12) upset the No. 24 Sun Devils (11-2, 0-1) in Pullman, Wash.
Louisville: Senior guard Antonita Slaughter was cleared to return playing after collapsing during a game last month because of a blood clot.
Friday's announcement marks a stunning turnaround for Slaughter, whom Cardinals coach Jeff Walz had said would miss the remainder of the season after she collapsed on the bench against Missouri State on Dec. 3. The 6-foot-1 Louisville native was hospitalized for several days, and tests revealed a blood clot requiring blood thinners.
Further tests at the Mayo Clinic determined the clot had cleared and that Slaughter no longer required medication. She returned to practice Thursday with the No. 7 Cardinals (14-1), and Walz said she could play against Cincinnati on Saturday.
Baylor 80, Savannah State 50: Reserve Taurean Prince scored 12 of his 15 points in the first half, leading the No. 9 Bears (12-1) over the Tigers (2-12). Cory Jefferson had 13 points for Baylor, which won its 12th consecutive home game.
