In a less than shocking result, the South Florida Bulls came away a loser once again at home on Wednesday night. Falling in their sixth straight home contest, the Bulls were pummeled by No. 12 Louisville 86-47.

While USF struggled to put points on the board, shooting 36% from the field, five Louisville players reached double figures. Wayne Blackshear tallied 16 points to lead all scorers as the Cardinals improved to 17-3 (6-1 in the American Athletic Conference). Meanwhile, the Bulls surrendered 23 turnovers in a less than stellar performance that dropped them to 1-5 in conference, and 10-9 overall.

Since losing point guard Anthony Collins (6.9 ppg, 5.9 apg) to a knee injury, USF has struggled mightily, losing seven games while only securing victories over  AAC cellar dweller Temple and outmatched Bradley.

Without a quick turnaround, even an NIT berth may be out of reach for Stan Heath’s Bulls who face a tough schedule going forward.
