USC VS. OREGON STATE.

Byline: - Scott Wolf

Tipoff: 1 p.m. at Sports Arena.

TV/Radio: Fox Sports West 2; KIEV-AM (870).

USC (5-8, 1-2) update: The Trojans finally snapped their seven-game losing streak with an ugly 63-59 victory over Oregon. The most encouraging aspect of the victory was the return of Jarvis Turner, who had four points and four rebounds in his first game since breaking a bone in his hand Dec. 2. Another surprise was the play of Anthony White, who had eight points, four rebounds and the game-winning basket. Freshman guard Kevin Augustine also showed improvement offensively, with eight points. Elias Ayuso is expected to play, despite being bothered by a sprained right ankle against Oregon.

Oregon State (9-5, 0-3) update: The Beavers are winless in conference play, but are not pushovers with a talented pair of guards - Corey Benjamin and J.B. Bickerstaff. One sign of trouble for USC: Oregon State outrebounded UCLA 22-14 in the first half Thursday night. Although the Beavers' overall record is respectable, they have not beaten a quality opponent, and own victories over UC San Diego, Sacramento State, St. Martin's, Northeastern Illinois, Hawaii-Hilo and Kent State.
