2012 Big East Tournament, Villanova Vs. South Florida: Bulls Lead Wildcats At Halftime, 27-17

At halftime in the Villanova Wildcats Big East Tournament game against the South Florida Bulls, the Bulls lead by a score of 27-17 in Madison Square Garden. The winner of tonight's game will go up against the conference's No. 3 seed team, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

The Wildcats have shot a terrible 20 percent from the field through the first half. They're led by Mouphtaou Yarou, who scored eight points in the first half, while the rest of the players have failed to reach four points and not a single player has been able to score off the bench. Maalik Wayns has had an especially bad half as he is 0-8 from the field and his three points have all come from free throws.

The Bulls, on the other hand, are shooting 42.9 percent from the field, and are led by Victor Rudd, who scored 10 points in the first half. Anthony Collins also added four and Jawanza Poland came off the bench to score six. Rudd has been especially effective in the first half as he's done pretty much the exact opposite of Maalik Wayns.
