TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Todd Mayo and former Memorial standout 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.
Junior Cadougan added 11 points for Marquette, which was coming off a 70-51 loss to then No. 12 Louisville last Sunday.
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.
