Shemiye McLendon made a free throw with 0.8 seconds left in overtime to give South Florida a 79-78 win over Central Florida on Wednesday night.

Victor Rudd led the Bulls (12-11, 3-7 American Athletic) with 25 points and Martino Brock contributed 17.

USF led 78-72 with 1:48 left in overtime after Rudd scored on a layup, but UCF rallied quickly.

A three-point play by Calvin Newell and a 3-pointer from Williams tied the score with 55 seconds left. After a USF miss, the Knights ran the clock down under 5 seconds, but Sykes’ layup was blocked by John Egbunu.

McClendon grabbed the ball and was fouled as he dribbled behind halfcourt. He made one free throw and intentionally missed the second.
