NEW ORLEANS (AP) - -

Melvin Frazier scored a season-high 27 points and Tulane strengthened its hold on the 10th and final berth in the American Athletic Conference tournament by completing its first regular-season series sweep of South Florida 94-71 on Saturday afternoon.

The Green Wave (5-21, 2-12) hold a two-game lead over the Bulls for the final playoff spot with four games remaining in the regular season. South Florida (7-19, 1-14) has now lost 16 of its last 18 games.

Frazier missed just one of his 11 shots, hitting 10 of 11 and 3 of 4 from beyond the 3-point arc. He was also a perfect 4-for-4 from the free throw line.

As a team, Tulane was 33 of 50 from the field (66 percent) and 12 of 22 (54.5 percent) from long-range.  Six players scored in double figures.

Geno Thorpe scored 22 points to pace South Florida.
