The USF men’s basketball team opens its exhibition schedule tonight at 8 against Siaulia-Lithuania at the Sun Dome.It will be the first of two slated exhibition games for the Bulls before they tip off against Fordham in the season opener.

“It will be interesting to see how they respond once the lights come on,” Greenberg said.
USF will be without a pair of forwards tonight, most notably senior B.B. Waldon, who along with freshman Kelvin Brown, was suspended for failing to meet academic requirements.

Freshmen Marlyn Bryant (6-foot-3, 203 pounds), Brandon Brigman (6-8, 257) and Brian Swift (5-10, 152) all figure to contribute for the Bulls this year. However, the newcomer who should make the biggest impact will be Greg Brittian. He originally signed with USF out of high school but attended Central Florida Community College for the past two years.
“Greg is a player that we have been waiting for, for a long time,” Greenberg said.
At the half, a 14-point lead meant USF was on track to win its first conference game in over a calendar year. That energy was kept up even with under five minutes to go when the Bulls were up 33-20. Then USF watched as its lead went from comfortable, to slim, to nonexistent in the […]

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 […]
