USF wins with slow-going style

The University of South Florida Bulls defeated Cincinnati 46-45 in Sunday’s Big East Conference thriller. It was the 559th victory in the history of USF men’s basketball.
And it was also the second-lowest scoring game ever by a winning USF men’s team.
USF’s all-time low-point record: The Bulls defeated Jacksonville University 42-38 on Feb. 25, 1984 in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament.
Sunday’s victory against Cincinnati was USF’s lowest-scoring effort since Nov. 30, 1997, when the Bulls defeated Rice 49-46.
USF runs the shot clock to its limit. It plays great defense. It contests practically every shot. And it wins.
