Rutgers Basketball Edges South Florida
Wally Judge scored 14 points and Martino Brock had a game-tying 3-point shot attempt rim out just before the buzzer as Rutgers defeated South Florida 70-67 on Thursday night.
Myles Mack and Eli Carter added 13 points apiece for the Scarlet Knights (12-4, 3-2 Big East), who nearly blew a seven-point lead in the final four minutes.
Jawanza Poland scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half for South Florida (9-7, 0-4), which lost its fourth straight game. Anthony Collins and Victor Rudd added 11 points apiece for the Bulls, who made their first NCAA tournament appearance a year ago.
