TAMPA, Fla. -- Jarrid Famous had 16 points and 10 rebounds, leading South Florida to a 74-55 victory over Hampton on Wednesday night.
Famous, a 6-foot-11 junior who played the past two seasons for Westchester Community College in New York, finished one point and two rebounds shy of career highs in only 28 minutes.
Charles Funches had 11 points and 10 rebounds, and Kwame Morgan scored 10 for Hampton (2-6).
The Pirates quickly fell behind after an emotional pregame tribute to team captain Theo Smalling, a Tampa native who died after an accidental shooting outside a Hampton nightclub before the season.
Hampton was down 18 midway through the first half and trailed 35-19 at the break.
