LOS ANGELES (AP) Alex Robinson scored 15 points to lead six players in double figures and TCU drubbed Southern California 96-61 for its fourth straight victory at the Basketball Hall of Fame Classic tripleheader on Friday night.

The Horned Frogs (7-1) dominated throughout in front of a slew of NBA executives and scouts at Staples Center.

USC (5-4) never made a sustained run in dropping its second in a row. Bennie Boatwright scored 14 points and Nick Rakocevic added 13, making 9 of 10 free throws.

TCU hit a season-high 12 3-pointers, led by Fisher with five, which equaled his career high set at SMU two nights earlier.

Robinson, the nation's assist leader, had eight. Jaylen Fisher also scored 15 points. Kouat Noi and JD Miller had 14 points each.

The Horned Frogs breezed to a 20-point halftime lead on their way to piling up a season-best 96 points.

They went up by 30 midway through the second half when Desmond Bane, Robinson, Noi and Miller combined to score TCU's first 30 points.

The Trojans shot a season-low 32 percent and committed a season-high 20 turnovers that led to 27 points for TCU.
