TAMPA - The Bulls are on the last leg of their basketball
USF plays its fourth game in five days 7:30 p.m. Tuesday
when it hosts Bradley at the Sun Dome. The Bulls went 2-1 during the USF
Invitational last weekend and head coach Stan Heath wants to see high intensity
early in the team's final game until Monday, Nov. 26 at Stetson.
"I just want our team to get off to a good start," Heath
Shutting down the opposing team is another mission for USF
after it held each of its three opponents to less than 60 points last weekend.
The Bulls have held 15 of their past 17 opponents under 60 points dating back
to last season.
"The energy and intensity on the
defensive end was very strong," Heath said.
USF (2-2) is coming off a 58-53 loss
to Western Michigan on Sunday. Shaun Noriega led the way with 16 points,
Toarlyn Fitzpatrick chipped in with 14 points and point guard Anthony Collins
posted a career-high 12 assists. It marked the most assists by a
Bull since Chris Capko recorded 12 against Jacksonville on Nov. 25, 2005.
"I'm glad he's not in our league and
we don't have to deal with that kind of point guard," Western Michigan coach
Steve Hawkins said.
The next home game on USF's schedule
is Friday, Nov. 30 against SEC foe Georgia at 7 p.m. The contest will be televised
nationally on ESPNU.
