(AP) — Jake Elliott kicked a pair of first-half field goals, one of them a 56-yarder that hit the
crossbar and bounced through to help Memphis beat sputtering South Florida 23-10 for the Tigers' first American Athletic Conference victory on Saturday night.
The Tigers (3-6, 1-4) broke open a close game, driving 59 yards in eight plays to score on a 5-yard run by Brandon Hayes that made it 13-3 with 4:09 remaining.
Dion Witty's interception and 22-yard return set up Elliott's third field goal of the night, and Bobby McClain ran back an interception 37 yards for a touchdown to turn it into a rout.
USF (2-7, 2-3) avoided going without an offensive touchdown for the fifth time when Mike White threw a 31-yard scoring pass to Andre Davis with 46 seconds left.
USF head coach Stan Heath earned his 200th career victory as the Bulls won 75-61 at Bowling Green Friday night.
Anthony Collins, expected to play about 10 minutes in his season debut, instead went 26 and his stand-in Corey Allen continued to perform very well.
Allen scored 19 points, nine in the game's last eight minutes including a three-point play after the host Falcons had cut it to 68-60 with 3:44 left. He also hit a 3 as the Bulls closed the first half on an 8-1 run after the game had been tied at 27.
The Bulls are 3-0 on the season while BGSU went to 1-1.
Victor Rudd added 16 points.
Collins missed the first two games with a knee injury. He had seven points and five assists.
"I said I was going to play him about 10 minutes, and the next thing you know I can't get him off the floor," Heath said.
Big 6-10 freshman John Egbunu had 12 points in the first half, grabbed eight rebounds and blocked four shots.
USF shot a tremendous 58.7 per cent from the field while the Falcons only made a 35.9 clip.
(Via USF Basketball Communications) - Top 150 recruit Troy Holston signed a national letter of intent Wednesday to join the University of South Florida men’s basketball team for the 2014-15 season.
The 6-feet-4-inch 187-pound shooting guard from Tampa chose his hometown school over offers from approximately 40 others including Miami (FL), Memphis, Marquette, Kansas State and Alabama.
“We’re excited to land Troy Holston,” said USF head coach Stan Heath. “Troy is one of the best shooters in the country. He has the ability to create his own shot as well as knock down the open ones. He’s really blossomed as a player and has made himself into the player he is right now with the hard work that he’s put in. He’ll come in as a guy that we feel can contribute because of his outside shooting. Troy’s excited to come here and we’re excited to have him.”
Holston, who gave a verbal commitment on Aug. 7, averaged 13.6 points while leading Oldsmar Christian to a 24-4 record last season. He was rated a three-star recruit by Scout, Rivals and ESPN. Holston was ranked the 26th best shooting guard prospect by Scout and an overall ranking of 140.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Corey Allen Jr. had 21 points, seven rebounds and nine assists, leading South Florida to a 91-65 victory against Bethune-Cookman on Tuesday night.
Four other players scored in double figures for the Bulls (2-0). Victor Rudd had 14, Chris Perry 13, Musa Abdul-Aleem 12 and Martino Brock finished with 10.
Clemmye Owens led Bethune-Cookman (1-1) with 14 points. The Wildcats got 13 each from Daquan Brown and Mikel Trapp, and 10 from Tony Kynard.
USF built a 38-20 lead late in the first half with a 22-6 run that included 13 points by Allen.
Bethune-Cookman immediately responded with a 10-0 run that cut the deficit early in the second half.
Victor Rudd scored 23 points, 15 of them coming in the final five minutes, and freshman Chris Perry had 14 points and seven rebounds in USF's 72-62 defeat of Tennessee Tech Saturday.
The visitors from the Ohio Valley Conference threatened to run the Bulls' season opener but Rudd took over with one of his patented flying dunks, followed by a three that made the score 61-50.
Rudd then made his last eight free throws to finish 11-12 at the line.
Perry, the 6-8, 260-pounder from Bartow, scored six of his points including a dunk that put the Bulls up by 11 earlier in the half. Tennessee Tech would get the lead down to four.
USF was without standout point guard Anthony Collins due to a knee injury.
