PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) Southern California coach Andy Enfield wanted a time-out. No one noticed.
And that was a most fortunate break for the Trojans.
Down by five midway through the first half and with a play falling apart, Enfield was shouting and signaling for time, his pleas somehow not getting acknowledged by either his players or the referees. USC wound up scoring on the play to start a huge run that allowed the Trojans to beat Xavier 84-78 on Saturday in the seventh-place game at the Battle 4 Atlantis.
