Yetna nets career-high 28 pts as S Florida downs E Carolina

GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) Alexis Yetna scored a career-high 28 points with 13 rebounds and South Florida used the second half to break away from East Carolina for a 77-57 on Saturday.

South Florida (14-6, 4-4 American Athletic Conference) led 36-34 at halftime before the Pirates took a 41-40 lead on Dimitrije Spasojevic's jumper with 17:10 remaining.

Yetna then went ballistic with a 3-pointer, 3-point play, a dunk, a layup and made 1 of 2 foul shots and the Bulls were up 54-43. Shawn Williams responded with a 3 for the Pirates (8-11, 1-6) before Yetna added another layup and South Florida lead by double digits the rest of the way. Yetna finished 11-of-13 shooting and scored 15 points in a little more than six minutes.

Justin Brown scored 14 for South Florida and LaQuincy Rideau scored 10 points with 10 assists.

Jayden Gardner paced ECU with 15 points and 15 rebounds, Shawn Williams scored 12 and Spasojevic 10.
