Big East Basketball Wrap-Up: South Florida Beats DePaul On The Road

There was just one Big East basketball game on Sunday after an extremely busy Saturday that saw Louisville rebound, Syracuse fall, and Georgetown rally to stay in second place in the conference race.

South Florida 75 DePaul 59. Seton Hall has been the overachieving story of the year in the Big East, and deservedly so. Quietly, under the radar, Stan Heath is putting together a but of an overachieving story of his own in Tampa. On the road at DePaul, Heath's Bulls improved to 5-2 in the Big East with a 75-59 win. It is the first time the Bulls have ever been 3 games over .500 in Big East conference play. Taking advantage of DePaul's dogged determination to run a full court press, no matter how ineffective it is at times, the Bulls shot a scorching 56% from the field (28 of 50). Led by Augustus Gilchrist who led the Bulls in scoring with 22 points, the Bulls jumped out to an early lead and took an eight point lead into the locker room. The second half was more of the same as Jawanza Poland, coming off the bench, added 19 points of his own and the Bulls extended the lead from 8 to 16 to put the Blue Demons away. DePaul's only real offensive weapon, Cleveland Melvin, led the team with 17 points and 7 rebounds in a losing effort. DePaul drops to 10-9 and 1-6 in Big East play.
