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

Zach LeDay added 11 points for the Bulls (12-17, 3-14 Big East), who have won two straight following a 10-game losing streak.

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.

Brock had three baskets and Toarlyn Fitzpatrick made a long-range jumper during an 11-2 surge that gave South Florida a 39-34 lead 5 minutes into the second half. Brock’s layup, a 3-pointer by Rudd and a free throw from LeDay made it 47-36 with 10:10 left.

Brock converted a fast-break layup to put the Bulls ahead 53-38. Consecutive slams by Rudd made it 61-44 with 4:07 remaining.

Connecticut won their other meeting this season, 69-64 in overtime on Feb 3.
