Mike Moser had 10 points and 13 rebounds and Justin Hawkins added 10 points for the Rebels (6-0), who will play either No. 1 North Carolina or South Carolina in Saturday night’s championship game.
Byron Wesley and Aaron Fuller each finished with 16 points to lead USC (2-4). Wesley had five rebounds and Fuller fouled out with 6:06 left. Maurice Jones had 11 for the Trojans.
