TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Todd Mayo and Vander Blue both scored 13 points to help No. 24 Marquette beat South Florida 70-47 on Wednesday night.
Mayo had all of his season-high 13 points in the first half as Marquette (16-5, 7-2 Big East) grabbed a 39-16 halftime lead.
The sophomore guard has appeared in 10 games coming off the bench this season after being academically ineligible.

South Florida (10-12, 1-9) got 14 points from Zach LeDay. The Bulls have lost five in a row.
Marquette has dominated the all-time series, winning 19 of 22 games against the Bulls. The Golden Eagles won the other meeting between the teams this season, 63-50 on Jan, 28, behind 30 points by Blue.
Cadougan opened the scoring with a 4-point play, part of an early 13-3 run by the Golden Eagles.
