LOS ANGELES (AP) -Southern California got some good news Friday regarding Daniel Hackett, whose injured right hip isn't nearly as serious as first feared.
Hackett left USC's 80-69 loss to Arizona on Thursday night less than two minutes into the game. He injured himself while diving to the floor in an attempt to keep a ball from going out of bounds.
X-rays were negative, and the injury was diagnosed as a hip pointer. Trainer Bobby Walls said Hackett was vastly improved Friday and might be able to play for the Trojans (13-7, 4-4 Pac-10) on Saturday night against Arizona State (14-6, 4-4).
USC coach Tim Floyd expressed the concern after the loss to Arizona that Hackett, a sophomore guard, had either chipped a bone in his hip or broken a rib. Hackett was coming off a career-high 26-point performance against Oregon.
