The South Florida Bulls trailed West Virginia by just five points at halftime, but in the second half the Bulls just couldn't do enough to overtake the Mountaineers and went down 50-44. The Bulls surged late in the game as Darryl Bryant scored 12 points in the second half, finishing the game with 16 points, but West Virginia was able to sink it's free throws and thwart the Bulls comeback.
With the loss, the Bulls enter the Big East tournament with a little bit of uncertainty about their spot in the NCAA tournament. While most feel the Bulls sealed their spot with a victory over Louisville, the Bulls may still need to make some noise in the conference tournament to make their position in the post-season a slam dunk.
