USC has us on our heels the whole first half. We had 13 turnovers in the first half and only two in the second. But when there is 5 minutes to play, I like our competitiveness and that speaks volumes of our team.Sadie Edwards scored 24 points on 9-for-14 shting, Kristen Simon had 15 points and Minyon Mre added 14 points, six assists and four steals for the Trojans (8-2), who snapped a six-game winning streak and lost for the first time at home this season.

They made their run and we just didnt recover, but my hat is off to my team. They played 40 minutes of basketball tonight. I think our defense helped caused MSU not to play a great game tonight.After trailing most of the game, the Bulldogs extended their lead to 75-70 on Williams three-point play with 1:26 to play.

CARMEL, Ind. -- U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson ran off four birdies in his last five holes Saturday and posted a 4-under 68, giving him a three-shot lead going into the final round of the soggy BMW Championship.Johnson couldnt make any putts early. He couldnt miss late.His late run to seize control began with a 10-ft birdie putt on the 14th hole and ended with an 18-ft birdie putt on the 18th.Paul Casey did his best to stay with Johnson. Casey, coming off a runner-up finish on Labor Day at the TPC Boston, matched two of Johnsons birdies during a late run until he had to scramble for pars on the last two holes. He still managed a bogey-free 68 and will be in the final group Sunday at 15-under.Johnson was at 18-under 198.He will be going for his third victory of the year, which would move him to the top of the FedEx Cup going into the finale at the Tour Championship in two weeks and make him a heavy favorite to win PGA Tour player of the year and the Vardon Trophy.J.B. Holmes was still in the mix; he shot a 68 and was four shots behind. Holmes at least is making a compelling case to be a captains pick for the Ryder Cup when Davis Love III announces three of his selections on Monday. Holmes finished 10th in the U.S. standings.Roberto Castro, who began the third round tied for the lead, didnt make a birdie in his round of 74 and fell six shots behind.

Im a long way back of the leaders and some great names on the leaderboard, Kuchar said. But I got a chance, and golf on Sunday in fun when you have a chance.Jordan Spieth had such a pr day putting that the distance of his total putts added to 30 feet, 6 inches. Spieth routinely makes one putt from that distance in a round. He was helped by two chip-ins, one for birdie and one for eagle, but closing with two straight bogeys gave him a 68. He was 10 shots behind, and his attention turned to a strong finish with hopes of getting one of the top five seeds at East Lake in the Tour Championship.Anyone in the top five only has to win the Tour Championship to claim the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus.Other Ryder Cup hopefuls didnt shine. Bubba Watson?settled for a 72, while Rickie Fowler shot 71 and was tied for 59th.The third round already was scheduled to start late because of morning storms in the forecast, which pounded Crked Stick and delayed that time by 1 1/2 hours. Making it tougher was the wind that pushed the clouds away and made it difficult to score. ' ' '
