Iwalani Rodrigues scored 23 points to lead the Utah women's basketball team to a 63-60 victory over USC in women's college basketball action Friday night in Los Angeles.

The Utes (11-9, 2-7 Pac-12) trailed by two at halftime but led by as much as 10 in the second half. Utah shot 57 percent from the field in the second half, made seven free throws in the final minute, and withstood a late rally from the Trojans (8-12, 5-4), who missed a desperation 3-pointer that would have tied the game as time expired.
