Luke Dunlap doubled in the ninth inning, his last at bat, to push his hitting streak to a career-long tying eight games . Ricky Holden improved to 7-2 all-time . Christian MacDonald made his second relief appearance of the season and retired both batters he faced to keep the game at 3-2 in the fourth inning .

She was introduced as the Trojans' new women's coach on Tuesday, returning to her alma mater where she helped USC win back-to-back national championships in 1983 and '84. Cooper-Dyke was greeted by cheers at Galen Center, where nine of her former teammates were among the crowd. They hooted and hollered as she was introduced by athletic director Pat Haden, who hired her last week to replace Michael Cooper. The former Los Angeles Lakers star, who is no relation, quit last month after four seasons. Cooper-Dyke calls USC her "dream job" and says she wants the Trojan women to win the Pac-12 championship and become a national power. (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
