TAMPA - Head coach Lelo Prado is pleased with what his USF baseball team accomplished in the classroom last semester.

The Bulls posted a team grade point average of 3.05 in the fall, which marks the third time USF has gone over a 3.0 since Prado took over the program.

"I'm really happy with a lot of the guys that really overachieved in the classroom and really worked hard," Prado said. "They're starting to get what's really important. Baseball is important, but they have to walk out of here with a degree."

USF was picked to finish fifth in the Big East this upcoming season and Prado's club gets started Saturday, Feb. 16 against Louisville in Clearwater. The Bulls also will face Indiana on Feb. 16 and Purdue on Feb. 17 in the Big Ten-Big East Challenge.
