USC 78, UC Irvine 55
(21) SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA 78, UC IRVINE 55
--

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Dwight Lewis scored 18 points and Taj
Gibson added 17 as No. 21 Southern California rolled to a 78-55
victory over UC Irvine on Saturday in the season opener for both
teams.

Highly touted freshman DeMar DeRozan had 14 points for USC,
which began life without O.J. Mayo by winning its season opener
for the first time since 2004. Coincidentally, that was a 90-70
win over the Anteaters.

Mayo - the third overall pick in June's draft - scored 32 points
in his USC debut last season, but the Trojans were stunned by
Mercer, 96-81.

Darren Moore scored 16 points for UC Irvine, who shot just 36.8
percent (21-of-57) from the floor.
