Alcorn State (0-0) at USF (0-0)
When: Tonight, 7
Where: Sun Dome
The story: The men’s basketball team opens its 2005 season tonight against Alcorn State. USF is 3-0 all time against the Braves – a member of the Southwestern Athletic Conference that finished 7-22 last year.
The two teams last faced off during the 2002-03 season when USF won 81-62 at home.
Coach Robert McCullum and the USF Athletic Department have been working harder than ever to attract more students to games.
“Anything we can do to enlighten people about the program or the importance of support, we’re certainly willing to do that,” McCullum said.
In fact, McCullum and Marketing and Event Manager Kosha Irby attended a Student Government senate meeting on Tuesday in an attempt to reach out to students.
“I just told them how much of a difference their presence and their enthusiasm can make,” McCullum said.
Irby and McCullum have introduced a new program called “Coach’s Couch Talks,” in which any student group can request McCullum to come and speak to their group.
“We’ll bring some pizza, some soda, sit down on the couch and just talk about the program,” Irby said.

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 […]
