USF coach Jim Leavitt once again moved practice times to accommodate the ever-changing Florida weather. After moving Wednesday?s practice from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. due to heavy afternoon showers, Leavitt moved up Thursday?s practice to 2:30.

The practice Thursday will be the last before the Bulls depart for Pittsburgh about 1 p.m. today.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
