The Bulls trail 23-17 with 3:45 left in the first half — a familiar feeling for USF this year, as they’ve given up early leads in both games.

USF can’t get a rebound, being beat 17-10 on the boards, and can’t catch a break. High Point guards hit two three pointers from about 10 feet behind the three-point line, as time expired on the shot clock. Coach Stan Heath looked up and smiled after the second one, knowing how lucky High Point has been — and to show his frustration in his team.
