College basketball

LOS ANGELES - Josh Childress scored a career-high 36, and top-ranked and unbeaten Stanford rallied from a 13-point first-half deficit to beat Southern Cal 76-67 Thursday night for its school-record 22nd straight win.

Stanford (13-0) clinched a share of its fourth Pac-10 title in six years.

Perfection has been hard to maintain. The Cardinal came from 19 points down to win at Oregon on Jan. 31, then Nick Robinson hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to hold off Arizona on Feb. 7.

USC (10-13, 5-9) threatened until the final minutes after Stanford blew an 11-point second-half lead. The Trojans tied it at 65 on Jeff McMillan's basket.

Childress hit a 3-pointer and made another basket for a 70-65 lead.
