1.18 Around The Big East

USA TODAY Sports

Only one game to talk about today, and we're going to have to be nice to Rutgers, apparently...

Friday will be a quiet day in the Big East before 14 of the 15 teams are in action again on Saturday. So let's look at what happened last night, shall we?

Rutgers 70, South Florida 67 - At the half, it looked like South Florida was ready to continue the weird trend of road teams winning Big East games, as the Bulls held a three point lead at the intermission. Rutgers wasn't having any of that, though, as they went on an 11-2 run to open the second half. It was touch and go for the rest of the half until Victor Rudd scored the last bucket of the game with 90 seconds left. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you don't see a three point game end with 90 seconds of no scoring very often. Yes, it's still VERY early, but Rutgers is tied with Cincinnati for the last double bye slot in the Big East tournament.

Jawanza Poland led USF with 17 off the bench, while Wally Judge was tops for the Scarlet Knights with 14. You can check in for more with Voodoo Five.
