TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Martino Brock scored 18 points, Victor Rudd had 17, and South Florida beat Connecticut 65-51 on Wednesday night.

Connecticut (19-10, 9-8) got 23 points from DeAndre Daniels. Huskies junior guard Shabazz Napier, averaging 17.6 points in conference games, missed his second consecutive game due to a foot injury.
