LOS ANGELES -- Southern California coach Andy Enfield can hardly believe his team is still undefeated. Pink Air Max Tailwind 5 .Chimezie Metu scored 17 points and Jordan McLaughlin had 16 points and nine assists to help No. 23 USC shake off another slow start with a 79-67 victory over Cornell on Monday night.We have a long way to go, Enfield said. We have to get better. Honestly, I have no idea how were 11-0.The Trojans fell behind by 10 points for the second consecutive game, but overcame sharp outside shooting by Cornell (2-7) with a solid second half.Cornell fired away from 3-point range all night, hitting 12 of 30 attempts from beyond the arc to keep itself in the game.Playing its seventh road game of the season, Cornell gave USC a tougher time than expected. Stone Gettings scored 22 points for the Big Red, Rob Hatter had 20 and Matt Morgan added 15.We had a game plan that was working for the most part, but they have some very talented, fundamentally sound players, and it was difficult to compete for that long, Cornell coach Brian Earl said.USC (11-0) looked like a team taking the Big Red lightly in the early going. With the Trojans hitting just one of their first eight shots, Cornell jumped out to a 16-6 lead behind a trio of 3-pointers from Gettings, a local product from Los Angeles Loyola High School.Cornell was still up by nine with less than 8 minutes to play in the first half when USC started its comeback. Elijah Stewart, the Trojans leading scorer, missed his first five shots but hit a 3 in the last minute to give USC a 37-34 lead at the break.Our team is streaky, but were talented and were young and they play well together, Enfield said. As optimistic and proud as we are of them, we know we have a lot of work to do.USC, which never trailed in the second half, also had to erase a 10-point deficit in its previous game Saturday against Troy.We have to stop getting off to slow starts like that, McLaughlin said. We kind of wait, for some reason. Its something we have to be focused on. You dont want to play catch-up. Some night you wont be able to do it.USC had a commanding height advantage and might have attempted to play too much 1-on-1 early, but did outrebound Cornell 43-28.METU ON THE RISEThe 6-foot-11 sophomore forward came off the bench last season, but is beginning to look like a force as a starter for USC this season.Chimezie is a high-level talent and a lot comes down to physicality and athleticism when you match up against him, Earl said. We just couldnt stop him. He will be in the league (the NBA) in a couple years, I imagine.COMEBACK KIDSThe Trojans have pulled off six comebacks of at least nine points this season.Were very explosive at times, Enfield said. We can score the ball. We just have to be more consistent.Its hard to come back every game like that.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Trojans moved up one spot to No. 23 this week and figure to continue slowly climbing as long as they remain undefeated.BIG PICTURECornell: Its been nearly 60 years since Cornell beat a Top 25 team on the road. The last time the Ivy League school accomplished the feat was against No. 17 Syracuse on Dec. 14, 1957. Thats a streak of 52 consecutive losses.USC: The 11-game winning streak is the longest for the Trojans since they opened 16-0 in 1971 and finished 24-2.UP NEXTCornell: The Big Red will meet their second team of Trojans when they play Troy on Thursday in Las Vegas.USC: The Trojans face Missouri State on Thursday in Las Vegas. Red Air Max Tailwind 6 . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse. Womens Air Max Tailwind 8 . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web. . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills have parted ways with defensive lineman Mark Anderson just one year after he signed a four-year deal with the team. Touted as a high-profile signing after a 10-sack performance with New England in 2011, Anderson agreed to a 4-year, $21 million contract with Buffalo in 2012. But he battled injuries for the Bills during his lone season, which led to his release. He made just five appearances, registering 12 tackles and one sack as the Buffalo defence allowed 435 points, most in the AFC East. The Bills finished 6-10 and have since retooled their defence. Anderson wasnt in the long-term plans. Buffalos off-season acquisitions of pass rushers Jerry Hughes and Manny Lawson made Anderson expendable, as the team looks to build from the line out. A fifth-round pick of Chicago in 2006, Anderson spent parts of five seasons with the Bears and another with Houston before movinng to New England. Air Max Tailwind 6 Black. He becomes the latest castoff on a team that has gone through a near top-to-bottom overhaul this off-season. New coach Doug Marrone has brought in an entirely new staff including the Bills third defensive co-ordinator in as many years, Mike Pettine. The defence saw numerous veterans either cut (linebacker Nick Barnett, safety George Wilson and cornerback Terrence McGee) or retire (defensive end Chris Kelsay and linebacker Shawne Merriman). The Bills also moved offensive tackle Chris Hairston, 24, to the physically unable to perform list. A fourth-round pick in 2011, Hairston has battled ankle and foot injuries over his career but played in 25 games, starting 15 contests. Hairston was expected to compete with Erik Pears for the starting right tackle position. ---- Associated Press sportswriter John Wawrow contributed to this report.
