Arizona Knocks Usc From First

By Associated Press

The Bibbys share only a last name and the ability to make some big-time plays at guard.

Henry Bibby, a star at UCLA and now coach of Southern Cal, watched his estranged son, Mike Bibby, score 17 points Saturday night in leading No. 11 Arizona to a 101-77 rout of the Trojans in Tucson, Ariz.

Michael Dickerson led Arizona with 23 points as USC had a five-game winning streak end.

There was none of the soap-opera atmosphere that surrounded the Jan. 16 Arizona-USC game, caused by Mike Bibby’s strained relationship with his father. Bibby’s parents separated when Mike was a baby, and Virginia Bibby raised her son in Phoenix while Henry lived and worked on the West Coast.

After the game, Henry Bibby shook hands with a few Arizona players, but not with his son. Mike Bibby made no attempt to move to his father and declined interview requests. Arizona coach Lute Olson spoke for him.

“I thought he played really well,” Olson said. “He was aggressive. He took it to the hole well.”

“Mike got it going,” Henry Bibby allowed. “He had more than his average at the half. That’s what you need.”

The Wildcats also got 17 points from Jason Terry and 14 from Miles Simon in avenging a 75-62 loss to USC and knocking the Trojans out of a first-place tie with UCLA for the conference lead.

“We owed them one,” Dickerson said. “They beat us, and they were talking a little stuff. We wanted to prove to ourselves that we can beat them.”

Stais Boseman scored 24 points, hitting 4 of 7 3-pointers, for the Trojans. Elias Ayuso added 11 and Gary Williams 10.

“We played a silly game tonight,” Williams said. “The intentional fouls, the turnovers (26 to Arizona’s 13). Everything we did was silly. We focused too much on their big men. By doing that, we let their perimeter players do whatever they wanted.”

The Wildcats, who shot 38 percent against the Trojans in Los Angeles, hit 59 percent in the first half and went up 51-36 on Terry’s 3-pointer with 6 seconds left in the period.

A.J. Bramlett, Dickerson and Simon made baskets in the first 1:50 of the second half, giving Arizona a 57-39 lead before the Trojans came back, cutting the margin in half at 59-50 with an 11-2 run keyed by a pair of layups by Boseman.

But Dickerson had seven points and Bramlett six during a 7-minute, 20-11 surge that opened a 79-61 lead with 7:41 left. The run coincided with an injury to referee Bruce Hicks, who pulled his right hamstring with 14:52 left and had to leave the game in the hands of the other two referees.

Arizona appeared lethargic at the start, and took just four shots in the first 4 minutes, missing all of them.
