Behind career high days from Toarlyn Fitzpatrick and Hugh Robertson, the USF bulls blew out Florida A&M to bounce back from the loss to Kansas.
The South Florida Bulls remained undefeated at home on Sunday with a 24 point win over the Rattlers from Florida A&M. Toarlyn Fitzpatrick had a career high 25 points for USF, hitting 11 of 16 shots from the field. Fitzpatrick was on fire for the full 40 minutes, hitting three of four attempts from behind the arc. In addition to the 25 points, the 6'8 junior from Tampa added eight rebounds.
Despite Fitzpatrick's big day, the most impressive performance of the afternoon may have come from 6'6 senior Hugh Robertson, who finished with an amazing career high 21 rebounds. Robertson averages a little more than four rebounds per game this season, but exploded for 21 boards on Sunday.
A 17-0 run at the end of the first half and start of the second helped buoy the Bulls to the 83-59 win. Against the soft non-conference opponent, they extended their lead to as much as 30 points in the second half in a solid bounce back performance after the 28 point loss to Kansas.
