MILWAUKEE -- Cincinnati's K.B. Sharp was a sharpshooter, scoring 13 of her 15 points in the first half on the way to a 60-41 defeat of South Florida in the C-USA Tournament.

Shannon Layne scored eight points moved into USF's all-time top-10 scoring list.

"A lot of it had to do with their depth," Layne said. "Sometimes they subbed five at a time and we just go with eight players. They were all over us."

In ending a humbling season for the Bulls, coach Jose Fernandez took it in stride.

"I'm just pleased with the effort," he said. "They never give up. Today we just didn't have many scoring chances and we didn't shoot very well."

Aiya Shepard led South Florida with 15 points. Sarah Lochmann added 10 for the Bulls, who shot 31 percent (16-52).

In the second half, Sharp took only two shots, but added to her assist total, finishing with 10 to tie the C-USA Tournament record for a single game. Her total doubled the team total for South Florida.
