LA Lakers defeat Chicago Bulls 116-109. I guess the Lakers don't like losing. They pounded the Bulls. But for some reason they just don't like to blow teams out allowing them to sniff some hope in the fourth quarter. As Nico would say, "What a tease." Pau Gasol led all scorers with 34 points while trying to prove he's not soft. The Bulls were led by rookie point guard Derrick Rose with 25 points.

#19 USC Trojans defeat New Mexico State Aggies 73-60. Before heading out to Puerto Rico, the Trojans managed to block out the Aggies. The Trojans blocked 10 Aggie shots and used their defense to put down the Aggies. Taj Gibson led the Trojans with 22 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks while freshman DeMar DeRozen (aka this year's OJ Mayo) managed just seven points.
