Another close loss drops Bulls to 6-7
Another opportunity, another second-half lead, but again, another close loss for USF basketball, which fell 69-62 at Cleveland State on Wednesday night, doomed by 24 turnovers in a game in which they would force only four.
Center Jarrid Famous continued his strong play of late with 22 points and 11 rebounds, and Augustus Gilchrist had 12 in his return after being out three games. USF (6-7) outrebounded the Vikings (13-1) 47-24 and shot 48 percent from the field, but the turnovers were too much to overcome.
Here's the boxscore from ESPN, and here's our full story from our correspondent in Cleveland. I'll be taking the next five days or so off, but want to wish all of you a happy holiday and safe travels in the next week.
