DAYTON, OHIO — Members of the media and fans of the South Florida Bulls criticize the team for the way they play offense of slowing the ball down when they have the horses to play uptempo.

Head coach Stan Heath believes that slowing the game down is the way to go against the horses in the Big East.

Who’s to argue with Heath, after all, they won 20 regular season games and gained a berth in the NCAA’s FIRST FOUR.

Coach Heath’s formula worked on Wednesday night against the California Golden Bears of the Pac-12 Conference.

The Bulls ran all over the court, scoring on three’s, layups, fast breaks, free throws and offensive rebounds en route to a 65-54 win at UD Arena.

The halftime score was 36-13 USF, which was unbelievable the fans and media at the game.

Those 13 points allowed by South Florida in the first half, ties for the seventh fewest since the NCAA tournament expanded in 1985, according to info from STATS LLC.

Cal ‘s top players Justin Cobbs, Jorge Gutierrez, Allen Crabbe were all bottled up by the Bulls defense. They only player who solved it was Harper Kamp, who scored 19 points.

The Bulls were led by Victor Rudd Jr., with 15 points, followed by Anthony Collins with 12, Augustus Gilchrist chipping in with 11 and Jawanza Poland with 10.

South Florida shot the ball well all game, 66% in the first half and 57% for the game.

The crowd of 7,218 were entertained by the slam-dunking, fast-breaking, helter-skelter play of the Bulls.

If college basketball fans did not know who Melvin Johnson III and the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners were before Wednesday’s NCAA First Four game, they know now.

Johnson came out of so-called shooting slump to poor in a career-high 29 points, leading UTSA to a 70-61 win over Alabama State at UD Arena in Dayton, Ohio.

The Roadrunners (20-13) now head to Cleveland, Ohio for a Friday date against top-seeded Ohio State.

Against the Hornets of Alabama State (17-18), Johnson had so many open shots it seemed like he was playing by himself in his backyard. In the first half, he outscored the Hornets all by himself, 25-21.

Alabama State, from the Southwestern Conference, had the worst record in the expanded 68-team tournament.

The Roadrunners had never won an NCAA tournament game up until Wednesday. Now they can put that talk to rest.

The Hornets, champions of their conference tournament, reached the NCAA Big Dance without having a winning record all season long.

Jeff Middlebrooks and Tramayne Moorer scored 12 points apiece.

The defending National Invitation Tournament Champion Dayton Flyers will be able to defend their title as one of 32 teams selected to the 2011 NIT.

UD earned the #3 seed and will begin on the road to take on #6 seed College of Charleston tonight (Tuesday, March 15) beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

The game will be televised nationally on ESPN2.

Dayton enters the 2011 NIT as the #3 seed in its region, but goes on the road to Charleston, South Carolina due to UD Arena hosting the NCAA First Four. During last year’s NIT Championship run, the Flyers won at Cincinnati, at Illinois and in Madison Square garden against Ole Miss and North Carolina.

The College of Charleston, 24-10 overall, won the Southern Conference regular season championship. The Cougars led by 2011 SoCon Player of the Year, Andrew Goudelock.

The Southern Conference is Appalachian State, UT-Chattanooga, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, Samford, North Carolina-Greensboro, Western Carolina and Wofford.

UD is attempting to be the third team to win the NIT Championship in back-to-back seasons.

The Flyers’ NIT history is rich with success. Last season was Dayton’s third NIT title. UD previously won the NIT in 1962 and 1968. Last year was also UD’s 22nd appearance in the postseason NIT.

The Dayton, Ohio school has been the runner-up five times and showcases a 40-20 all-time record. Head Coach Brian Gregory is 7-1 all-time in the NIT. Dayton’s 22 NIT appearances are second only to St. John’s 27 berths.

The Flyers reached the finals five times in the 1950′s and won the tournament in 1962 under coach Tom Blackburn and 1968 under coach Don Donoher.
