USC forward Eric Wise scored 14 points on only 10 shots in a 71-69 victory over Stanford on Thursday night in a Pac-12 Conference opener. Wise also made two of his three three-point attempts, a sign that a player understands where and when to take the long shot. Cardinal Coach Johnny Dawkins pointed to Wise as not only a good Pac-12 player but someone who should get national attention. "He is a great player," Dawkins said. "He is strong. He is probably one of the most efficient players in the conference, maybe the country.

Foul or shot-clock violation? Two free throws for USC's Eric Wise or possession to Arizona State? It felt like "forever," Wise said, while officials huddled around a television screen and tried to make a decision. In a basketball season during which so much has gone wrong for the Trojans, this time something went right. The call made by the referee closest to Wise, the one who had called a foul on Arizona State's Jordan Bachynski just as the 35-second shot clock ran out of time, is the call that stood.

There are these times when J.T. Terrell makes a three-pointer smoothly in the rhythm of the offense, when Dewayne Dedmon slams down the basketball off a pass from Eric Wise, when Jio Fontan drives to the basket and makes the layup, when USC takes a 13-point lead on the 11th-ranked team in the country. And then there are other times, back-to-back-to-back turnovers, layups missed after sneaky steals, blown defensive assignments that let the opponent make three-pointers without a Trojan in sight, and USC almost gives away the lead.

This victory didn't come easily for USC. The Trojans gave up a double-digit second-half lead, survived the loss of their leading scorer — sent to the locker room with two technical fouls — and came back in overtime after a long video review that seemed to go the wrong way ended regulation. They beat Dayton, 63-61, in overtime Sunday at the Galen Center. The key play came with 2 minutes 50 seconds left when guard Jio Fontan created a spinning move worthy of "Dancing With the Stars" to score in the lane.

USC Basketball Roster Starters Dewayne Dedmon, 7-0, Jr., F: Struggled with expectations and injuries, but an off-season spent working on his jump shot and low-post game should pay off. Plus, he's healthy. Eric Wise, 6-6, Sr., F: Set records at UC Irvine but decided to transfer. Lost more than 30 pounds while sitting out. Omar Oraby, 7-2, Jr., C: Transfer from Rice is a skilled shot-blocker and scorer who on Thursday was granted a hardship waiver by the NCAA, making him immediately eligible.
