SEATTLE (AP) -- Tony Wroten had 13 points eight assists and six rebounds as Washington kept a hold on first place in the Pac-12 with a 69-41 win over Southern California on Saturday night.

Terrence Ross added 10 points and 14 rebounds for the Huskies (16-7, 9-2 Pac-12), who won their fifth straight.

Wroten played despite a deep thigh bruise that sent him to the bench for the final seven minutes of Thursday's game against UCLA. On Saturday, Wroten played 17 minutes in the first half, then warmed himself back up at halftime by riding a stationary bike in the tunnel next to the Washington bench while his teammates took shots.

His second half was mostly filled with feeding his teammates, including a pair of pretty lobs to Ross.

Garrett Jackson led the Trojans (6-18, 1-10) with 15 points. USC missed its first 14 3-point attempts, shot only 29 percent and went scoreless for more than six minutes of the second half as Washington ran away.
