Baylor vs. USC: Score and Twitter Reaction from March Madness 2017

"I just had to pick it up", Lecomte said.

Baylor's players are hoping a deep NCAA Tournament run can help improve the school's reputation amid a sexual assault scandal that sparked a federal lawsuit and prompted the university to fire its football coach and demote its president.

A four-point play by Lecomte put the Bears up 69-67.

Trailing Baylor 36-26 late in the first half, the Trojans rallied to take a 67-65 lead with a pair of free throws by De'Anthony Melton with 4:57 remaining.

Sure enough, that's what Baylor did, showing no signs of relenting as senior leader Ishmail Wainwright iced the game at the free-throw line. Viewed as a bit of an X-factor after transferring from Miami, Lecomte has settled into the lead guard role nicely with Baylor.

"This was a game that was there for the taking if we would have executed down the stretch", Enfield said. "We have confidence in him because in practice he's such a good shooter and spends so much time at it". You can affect the game even if you're not making shots, and Manu does a great job feeding the post. "He cares about his teammates".

Baylor knew Southern California would keep coming.

The Bears shot 50.8 percent overall and got a big game from King McClure who nailed five of eight 3-pointers and scored 17 points.

Liverpool's Juergen Klopp rued missed chances but agreed that a draw was a fair end to an eventful encounter. He said: "I never came here and said we are going to win one title".

Stewart and McLure traded threes as the Bears built their lead to 10 points with two minutes remaining. In fact, only freshman Nick Rakocevic scored off the bench for USC.

The Bears took command in the first half with a 10-0 run to grab an 18-10 lead.

Playing at the No. 2 spot, the 81st-ranked ranked Johannes Schretter took care of USC's Nick Crystal easily, 6-4, 6-3, to get the Bears on the board.

With the team score now tied 3-3, the full attention turned to the No. 3 spot where the 35th-ranked Max Tchoutakian was in a three-set battle against No. 45 Logan Smith.

Metu scored USC's final five points of the first half with a drive and free throw followed by a turnaround jumper. His shot swished through the net, and USC's Elijah Stewart hit Lecomte's wrist during his shot.

Baylor went ahead by four points.

Despite watching a nine-point lead vanish, Baylor bounced back in its bright neon-green uniforms and preserved a win Sunday night at BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

USC got 28 points from forward Chimezie Metu and 16 from Bennie Boatwright, but the Trojans' fourth season under Enfield ended in tough fashion despite a school record 26 victories and dramatic tournament wisn against Providence (a play-in game) and SMU.
