You can only laugh at this point.

NCAA Basketball: Cincinnati at South Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

USF men’s basketball lost again (This is not a recording). Only this time they put some stank on it, losing 90-52 at ECU Wednesday night.

There’s not much to say about the game so let’s see how USF Twitter handled the game:

It got away from the Bulls early in this one as they were down 19-5 during the first half and finished the half down by a score of 44-18.

Fellow TDS writer Ryan Smith said in the Slack Channel this loss is worse than McNeese State. It’s (probably) not, but it’s a conversation.

The Bulls had more turnovers (12) than made field goals (7) in the first half.

The Pirates shot an outstanding 61% from the field and 57% from beyond the arc and had five players score in double figures led by Shawn Williams’ 22 points.

Stephan Jiggetts led USF with 15 points and no other Bull had more than eight points. Wing Payton Banks was held scoreless after scoring 22 points versus Cincinnati after missing three games due to an illness.

The Bulls remain winless out of the state of Florida since December 1, 2016 against Troy.

USF (7-12, 0-6) hosts UCF Saturday at the Sun Dome. Tip is scheduled for 6 p.m.
