Loyola, which played a mere six players in the outing, also picked up eight points and 10 rebounds from Alex Osborne.

USF scored the first points of the night and never looked back, the team using 48.3 percent shooting from the field in the first half to establish a 35-27 advantage at the break. The Lions didn't do themselves any favors by shooting just 1-of-5 at the free-throw line and 2-of-11 on the perimeter.
