TAMPA - The Bulls' tough road trip continues Friday when the Bulls compete at the Jayhawk Classic that features more than 40 teams.

USF's competition includes host school Kansas' No. 2 women's program and a Jayhawk men's team that finished as the NCAA runner up last outdoor season. Action begins 9 a.m. Friday at Anschutz Pavilion and head coach Warren Bye is looking for the Bulls to continue making progress with about three weeks to go before the Big East Indoor Championships.

"We're looking to see if the athletes can improve from last week's competition. We had a very good weekend at Notre Dame and I look forward to seeing how they do this weekend as well," Bye said.

Monique Williams (60), Atasha Warren (shot put), Matthew Oneal (triple jump), Aireonna Bailey (200) and Courtney Anderson (high jump) each won their respective events at last weekend's Notre Dame Invitational. The Bulls increased their Big East qualifying total to 27 on the women's side and 23 on the men's side.

USF started the spring facing some of the top programs in the nation at the Crimson Tide Opener and the Bulls' challenging schedule will continue at Penn State next weekend. The Big East Indoor Championships are scheduled for Feb. 16-17 in Geneva, Ohio.

"Leading up to the Big East, the schedule is preparing us for top competition. At the same time, it's giving the kids another opportunity to go up against very, very good competitors," Bye said.
