Rudd Leads USF to First Conference Win

For the first time in school history, the South Florida Bulls are 4-0 on the road after defeating the Temple Owls by the score of 82-75 on Thursday night.

PHILADEPLPHIA, PENN.---Beyond a dominant performance from senior forward, Victor Rudd, the South Florida Bulls (10-6, 1-2) picks up their first conference win of the season, and are 4-0 on the road for the first time in school story.

All-Conference point guard Anthony Collins (knee) missed his sixth consecutive game this evening and his eight overall, but that didn't slow down the debut of coach Stan Heath's son, Josh Heath.

The freshman recorded two points, three rebounds and five first half assists in 19 minutes for the Bulls. Victor Rudd led the Bulls with 23 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block on 8-of-15 shooting. Rudd is now 39 points away from 1000.

Overall, five Bulls scored in double figures on the night, including freshman Chris Perry, who was played only 11 minutes after fouling out in the first half. The Bulls outrebounded the Owls 40-30, but still only shot 66.7 % (14-21) from the charity stripe on the night.
