Green had 18 points, his most since Thanksgiving, and No. 23 Arizona won both the rebounding and turnover battle to build a big lead and then hang on for an 85-80 win over the USC Trojans on Thursday night at McKale Center.

It was the 400th career win for Miller, 280 of which have been in his 11 seasons at Arizona.

Zeke Nnaji had 18 points and 11 rebounds and Nico Mannion added 20 with seven assists assists as the Wildcats (16-6, 6-3 Pac-12) won their third in a row to remain tied in the loss column atop the conference standings at the midway point.
