TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Victor Rudd scored 15 of his 23 team-high points in the second half, leading South Florida to a 72-62 victory over Tennessee Tech in the season opener for both teams Saturday night.

Freshman Chris Perry had 14 points and seven rebounds for the host Bulls.

Junior college transfer Ty Allen scored 25 points to pace Tennessee Tech. Redshirt sophomore Josiah Moore had 15 in his debut for the Golden Eagles, who trimmed a second-half deficit of 13 points to three with 5:28 to go.
