The story: The Bulls open up conference play in their second season in the Big East after nearly winning the league title in their first. But today marks just the second time USF and Notre Dame have met. The last was in 1985, when the Bulls won 3-0.
Forwards Justin McGeeney – who earned Big East Offensive Player of the Week by scoring two goals – and Justin Lapira lead the Fighting Irish with four points and five goals, respectively.

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 […]
