Chasson Randle scored 18 points to lead Stanford to its fourth win in five games and a season sweep against Southern California with an 80-59 victory on Thursday night.

Dwight Powell added 14 points and Josh Huestis had 11 points and a career-high 18 rebounds for the Cardinal (17-8, 8-5 Pac-12), who head into Saturday night's showdown against No. 23 UCLA on a roll.

Pe'Shon Howard scored 13 and Julian Jacobs added 11 for the Trojans (10-16, 1-12), who have lost seven straight games under first-year coach Andy Enfield.

To make matters worse for USC, the Trojans were without leading scorer Byron Wesley, who will miss both games in the Bay Area this weekend for a violation of team rules. Wesley is averaging 17.6 points per game and had scored 110 points in USC's previous five games.
