CINCINNATI (AP) — JaQuon Parker scored five of his 14 points in overtime Saturday, and Cincinnati rallied from an eight-point deficit late in regulation to a 61-53 victory over South Florida.

Cincinnati (21-10, 9-9 Big East) ended the regular season on an upbeat note, trying to generate momentum heading into the conference tournament. The Bearcats lost six of their last nine games, a far different fashion from a year ago.

Point guard Cashmere Wright led Cincinnati with 15 points. Center Cheikh Mbodj blocked a shot late in regulation and had four free throws in overtime, finishing with eight points.

Victor Rudd scored 22 for South Florida (12-18, 3-15), which ended the season with yet another disappointment after wasting the late lead. The Bulls failed to win a Big East game on the road this season. They’ve dropped their last 11 in Cincinnati.
