Freshman forward Hunter West was named Conference USA Offensive Player of the Week on Monday for scoring four goals in two matches, both victories, for the USF men’s soccer team this past weekend.
West scored a hat trick Friday against Memphis in a 4-2 win and scored the second of four USF goals Sunday as the Bulls defeated Florida Atlantic by the same score. He is the first freshman to win the award for USF in the eight-year history of the conference.

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 […]
