TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Brandon Pokley scored 15 points, Darius Paul had 14, and Western Michigan beat South Florida 58-53 on Sunday.

The victory gave Broncos' coach Steve Hawkins his 300th career win. Nate Hutcheson added 11 for Western Michigan (4-1).

``I truly did not know it until it happened ... when I started I was skinny and had hair,' the bald-headed Hawkins said. ``The most important thing, we've got a lot of freshmen, and to get the win, to reward the kids for a great effort was the most important thing.'

South Florida (2-2) got 16 points from Shaun Noriega. Toarlyn Fitzpatrick chipped in 14 points, while Anthony Collins had 12 assists.

``We've got to be more consistent,' Noriega said. ``That's been a big issue for us.'

Both teams won games Friday and Saturday in the three-day South Florida Invitational.

Jared Klein converted a 3-pointer to give Western Michigan a 55-50 lead with three minutes to go. Jawanza Poland's three-point play cut the USF deficit to 55-53 with just two under minutes remaining, then Hutcheson's late three-point play made it 58-53.

South Florida grabbed a 46-45 lead when Noriega made a 3-pointer and added a three-point play midway through the second half.

``We've got to become a better team at finishing,' South Florida coach Stan Heath said. ``We were very good at that in the past.'

Paul connected on a 3-pointer as Western Michigan went ahead 43-38 with 13 1-2 minutes left.

Fitzpatrick had 12 points to help South Florida take a 36-34 halftime lead. The senior forward made his fourth 3-pointer of the half and Zach LeDay had a slam to put the Bulls ahead 32-25 three minutes before the break.

``We had a chance to really buckle when South Florida took a seven-point lead there,' Hawkins said. ``I thought that was the critical point in the game.'

Pokley hit a pair of long-range jumpers as Western Michigan took an early 10-5 lead. South Florida, keyed by three 3-pointers by Fitzpatrick, went ahead 13-12 six minutes into the game.

Western Michigan outrebounded USF 39-26.
