Basketball: L.A. teams split

USC salvaged a bit of pride for the Pac-12 with a win over Morgan State and ex-Cal coach Todd Bozeman.

   — USC 65, Morgan State 62: Aaron Fuller scored 19 points and Maurice Jones had 18 and six assists to lead the Trojans (2-3). USC got clobbered on the boards but forced Morgan State into 21 turnovers.

   — Kansas 72, UCLA 56: The Bruins (1-3) trailed by 20 early in the second half, then rallied within five points before the No. 14 Jayhawks (3-1) regained control in the semifinals at Maui.  Tyler Lamb had 15 points and Jerime Anderson scored 14, but UCLA shot just 36 percent. Reeves Nelson came off the bench and scored 12 points, but center Joshua Smith attempted only one shot and totaled one point.
