Coming off a 2013 NCAA tournament run and a trip to the WNIT Final Four in 2014, the USF women’s basketball team will receive plenty of national attention this season.
The American released USF’s 18-game conference schedule this afternoon, complete with eight nationally-televised games including a pair against the defending National Champion UConn Huskies on ESPN2. USF’s non-conference schedule was already an attention-grabber as one of the toughest in the nation, and as the Bulls add UConn and the rest of The American to a finalized slate, they set the stage for what could be a very special season.
“We’re playing one of the toughest non-conference schedules in the country, and I think we should be doing that, because we’re going to be good this season,” head coach Jose Fernandez said. “This team is deserving of the national attention it’s going to be receiving this year, and these conference basketball games are going to be great national TV. We’re excited to play this year, and to continue playing in front of a national audience.”
USF opens its conference season on ESPNU Sunday, Dec. 28, playing host to American newcomer East Carolina in the Sun Dome. After hosting Memphis New Year’s Eve, the Bulls will hit the road for a weekend games at Tulane (Jan. 3) and Temple (Jan. 11), broadcast on CBS Sports Network.
USF travels to UConn Jan.18 to face the Huskies for the first time this season on ESPN2, with UConn making the return trip to the USF Sun Dome March 2 for a Monday primetime matchup, also on ESPN2.
With all game times subject to change, the full television schedule and tip times will be finalized later this year, as the Bulls add television games to the schedule. Click HERE for the Full 2014 Schedule, and read all about the 2014 non-conference schedule HERE.
