USF wary of Wildcats
Last February, Devon Ivany blasted a grand slam to lead the Bulls to a come-from-behind victory over Bethune-Cookman.
Today the Bulls travel to Daytona Beach for a 3 p.m. game against the defending Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Champion Wildcats.
The Bulls are off to a good start, but coach Eddie Cardieri warned BCC is “not to be taken lightly.”
The Wildcats are coming into the game struggling, starting the season 0-7.
“Their record is deceiving because they play all good teams,” Cardieri said. “And being 0-7, all that tells me is that they are due for a win.”
USF comes into the game on a roll, winning its first four games for the first time since the 1986 season. After they swept East Tennessee State in their opening series, the Bulls beat Jacksonville to go 4-0. And a win over the Wildcats would be Cardieri’s best start as the Bulls skipper.
“We’re off to a good start, but that’s all it is,” Cardieri said. “They don’t call them the Wildcats for nothing. They play all good teams, (and today’s game) is dangerous.”
On paper the match-up looks good for the Bulls. Cardieri is 23-3 all time against BCC while he has been the head coach at USF. And Jacksonville, who the Bulls beat 15-4 on Tuesday, took two games from the Wildcats already this 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 […]
