    SEATTLE -- Ariya Crook scored 19 points, including three free throws in the final 30 seconds, as the fifth-seeded USC women beat No. 12 seed Arizona 59-54 in the first round of the Pac-12 Conference tournament on Thursday.

    Carissa Crutchfield hit a 3-pointer with 7:41 to play, pulling Arizona within three, 52-49, but the Wildcats made just 1 of 8 field goals the rest of the way and USC (19-12) held on for the win.

    The Women of Troy will play No. 4 seed Arizona State (22-8) in the quarterfinals on Friday.

    Alexyz Vaioletama pulled down 12 rebounds and Cassie Harberts grabbed 11 for USC, which out-rebounded Arizona (5-25) 41-30, including 12-4 on the offensive glass. Kate Oliver scored 12 in the win.

    Kama Griffitts paced the Wildcats with 13 points and seven rebounds. Crutchfield added 12 points and LaBrittney Jones scored 10.
