USF (6-10, 0-3) at Georgetown (10-4, 2-2)
When: Tonight, 7:30
Where: MCI Center
TV/Radio: None, 1250 AM
The story: After two close losses to open their Big East play – the team lost by a total of 10 points to No. 20 Syracuse and No. 12 West Virginia – the Bulls lost by 19 points to St. John’s on Saturday. USF suffered from its shooting against the Red Storm, going one for 15 from three-point range and 19 for 55 shooting field goals. For the season, the team is shooting .438 for field goals and .338 from three point range. Georgetown, on the other hand, which lost to No. 3 Connecticut 74-67 on Friday, makes nearly twice as many three pointers as USF with 7.4 a game.
One advantage – at least statistical – the Bulls have over the Hoyas is blocks per game, with 6.1 a game, while senior Solomon Jones, who leads the team with 55, is averaging 3.4 blocks and 10 rebounds a game.
Keep an eye on: McHugh Mattis. The junior college transfer had a career-high 15 points and 10 rebounds in his first double-double of the season. Mattis has seemed to take over as the new dunker on the men’s basketball team with four Saturday in a span of four minutes and is prone to grab an offensive rebound and slam two points over the opposing forwards and centers.

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 […]
