The DePaul Blue Demons butt heads with the South Florida Bulls in game three of the CBI college basketball championship.

The South Florida Bulls fell to the DePaul Blue Demons 100-96 in overtime on Wednesday that evened the CBI championship 1-1.

The Bulls trailed by eleven points at the halfway point but 46.6% marksmanship wasn’t enough to save a defense that generally struggled to get stops.

Laquincy Rideau carried South Florida with a game high 35 points, three yanks and eighty helpers with Alexis Yetna adding 26  points and 12 rebounds.

Justin Brown gave the Bulls another 13 points followed David Collins who tossed in 12 points with three pulls and six boards.

The DePaul Blue Demons squandered an eleven point lead at the intermission before prevailing in overtime to force a game three in the CBI championship. 

The Blue Demons offense led the way, sinking half their looks with a 21-27 performance at the charity stripe which was crucial down the stretch.

Max Strus was the top gun for DePaul with 32 points and three yanks with Paul Reed adding 28 points, 16 rebounds and three blocks.

Femi Olujobi gave the Blue Demons 14 points and four boards while Jaylen Butz and Flynn Cameron combined for 17 points and seven rebounds.

South Florida Bulls are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 road games and are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 non-conference games and  are 6-12 ATS in their last 18 vs. Big East andare 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall.

DePaul Blue Demons are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Friday games and  are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games and  are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall and are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

South Florida Bulls are 10-0 ATS in the last 10 meetings and are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in DePaul and favorite is 8-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings.

South Florida missed a golden opportunity to win this series but did prove they can compete on the road so I'll take the points...

Pick:
South Florida +3

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
