Bulls picked to finish fourth
The USF baseball team was picked to finish fourth in Conference USA in the upcoming 2004 season, according to a poll of the league’s 12 head coaches that was announced Tuesday by the conference office.
Tulane was picked to finish first, garnering seven first-place votes, followed by Southern Miss and Houston.
“If you look at the top teams listed in this year’s preseason poll, you see a lot of talent returning,” USF coach Eddie Cardieri said. “To be predicted to finish fourth is an honor. However, it is honestly anybody’s guess on who will be on top at the end of the season.”
USF’s Myron Leslie, Devin Ivany and Jeff Baisley were all named to the preseason all-conference team.
Leslie, a senior, is a three-time all-conference selection. Baisley, a junior, was a second-team all-C-USA selection last season, while Ivany, a junior, was a first-team all-conference selection last season.

Bulls battle with ECU in OT win
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 […]
