Verizon Center, Washington, District of Columbia
WASHINGTON -- With a minute to play in perhaps the biggest win in South Florida history, the star player bellowed to the Georgetown crowd: "Y'all come watch Dominique Jones play!"When the horn sounded, Jones flexed his muscles, extolled the virtues of his school to anyone within earshot and told the school's radio crew his "heart was beating too fast" with excitement to do a postgame interview.
• Dominique Jones scored 22 of his 29 points in the second half as South Florida overcame a nine-point halftime deficit.
• South Florida beat its second ranked opponent this week. It defeated Pittsburgh on Sunday.
• The Bulls have won four straight Big East games after having never won back-to-back conference games. Jones is averaging 35 PPG over the four-game win streak.
• Georgetown's 11-game win streak at the Verizon Center ended.
