PULLMAN, Wash. -- Reggie Moore scored 12 points, including a banked 3-pointer with 51.4 seconds left, to help Washington State down USC 51-47 Saturday afternoon.

DeAngelo Casto added 11 points, seven rebounds and three blocked shots for the Cougars (16-11, 6-9 Pac-10). Abe Lodwick, making his first start since Jan. 23, also scored 11 points.

Dwight Lewis led USC (16-10, 8-6) with 14 points and four steals. Nikola Vucevic added 12 points and seven rebounds.

Lewis guarded WSU scoring leader Klay Thompson most of the game and held Thompson to a career-low two points. Thompson, a sophomore guard who averages 20.1 points, missed all 12 of his field-goal attempts and had six turnovers.

Washington State won despite making just 14 of 24 free throws (58.3 percent), including misses on 3 of 4 attempts in the final 11.9 seconds.
