College basketball: South Florida stuns No. 7 Georgetown 72-64

WASHINGTON — Dominique Jones ignited a comeback by scoring 22 of his 29 points in the second half, and South Florida extended its longest Big East winning streak, stunning No. 7 Georgetown 72-64 on Wednesday night.

South Florida shot 65 percent after halftime to win its fourth straight conference game, including a 70-61 win over then-No. 17 Pittsburgh on Sunday that gave the Bulls three straight for the first time since joining the Big East in 2005.

The Bulls (15-7, 5-5), who also have five Big East wins in a season for the first time, trailed by 13 points late in the first half and by 35-26 at halftime due to 60 percent shooting by Georgetown (16-5, 6-4). But the Hoyas went cold in the second half and Jones began to show the flair that has him averaging 35 points during the winning streak.
