Led by Luke Harangody's 19 points and 15 boards the Irish started fast, but the Bulls built a 6 point lead late int he 2nd half before missing key free throws down the stretch cost them the lead and ultimately the game. Dominique Jones was finally held in check after going on an absolute tear during the win streak. The loss drops the Bulls to 15-8 over all and 5-6 in Big East Conference play. USF has gotten a lot of national attention during their win streak and is still a viable NCAA tourney candidate. A win over Marquette tuesday night would go a long way to securing that.
