There are games when UCLA guard Norman Powell becomes an ignition switch. The Bruins' game Saturday night against USC was one of those times. To say UCLA was in a funk during the first half would be an insult to teams in funks. UCLA looked worn and beaten. Powell stepped in and started the salvage operation that ended in an 83-73 Pac-12 Conference victory for the Bruins at the Galen Center. Powell had a season-high 21 points, 17 coming in the second half. He made six of seven shots after halftime.

UCLA VS. USC When: 7:30 p.m. Where: Galen Center. On the air: TV: Fox Sports1; Radio: 570, 710. Records: Bruins 17-5, 6-3 in Pac-12 play; Trojans 10-12, 1-8. Update: UCLA embarrassed USC, 107-73, in a Pac-12 opener, dominating every facet of the game. The Trojans have performed better than that in the last two weeks, though they have little to show for it. USC lost its first five Pac-12 Conference games by an average of 22 points. The Trojans have won only one of their last four games, but two of the losses came in overtime.

Hundreds of students paraded into a gymnasium on Saturday afternoon at USC's Galen Center, their friends and families cheering from the bleachers as ragtime music played. The Super Quiz, the final event in the Los Angeles County Academic Decathlon, was about to start. The game show-style competition requires teams of nine high school students to answer three dozen multiple-choice questions on subjects including art, economics and science. Questions were read by Fox 11 news reporter Gigi Graciette, and students had just seven seconds to punch in their answers on hand-held electronic devices.

Update: USC won its only game with Oregon State last season, 69-68, at the Galen Center, but the Trojans have lost their last four games in Corvallis. It will be interesting to see if USC Coach Andy Enfield gives more playing time to Strahinja Gavrilovic after the sophomore forward came off the bench and scored a career-high 12 points in the Trojans' loss Sunday to Stanford in overtime.

Waiting for Dunk City … It's another slow night at the half-filled Galen Center, no lines at the gleaming concession stands, desolation on the wide concourses, the referee's whistle audible even in the men's restroom. The hearty few USC fans occasionally cheer, sing and even dance to the sort of energetic music and announcing that reminds one of a hot summer night in a desolate minor league ballpark. But, mostly, they just wait. They are waiting for fireworks promised with the arrival of new Coach Andy Enfield, who was hired last spring after winning two NCAA tournament games with unknown Florida Gulf Coast University.
