Final Scoring Summary
South Florida 82, Bradley 63: Toarlyn Fitzpatrick totaled 16 points and the Bulls had four players score in double figures to take down the Braves in Tampa.
Victor Rudd added 15 points and a career-high 12 rebounds for South Florida, which bounced back from a tough loss to Western Michigan last time out. The Bulls (3-2) outrebounded Bradley 39-28.
Tyshon Pickett had a team-high 13 points and Will Egolf added 11 but Bradley (3-1) played behind from the start and never threatened.
The Bulls jumped out to a 13-4 start, aided by a 3-for-3 start from beyond the arc. South Florida extended its lead to 32-20 with 5:26 to play and as Bradley looked to rally, Rudd, Shaun Noriega and 7-3 freshman center Jordan Omogbehin collected blocks to kill whatever momentum the Braves were beginning to build.
South Florida, which led 43-26 at the half, rode a 17-1 run shortly after the break to push the lead to 30 and put the game away.
GAME NOTEBOOK: Anthony Collins added to his Big East-leading assist total with 10, including a highlight reel alley-oop to Rudd that the former released from his own 3-point line... Collins has 41 assists on the season... Noriega finished with 14 points, giving him back-to-back double digit games since the 2011 Big East tournament... The Bulls have shot better than 50 percent from the field in each of their three wins and under 40 percent in both of their two losses.
