The story: Only four regular- season contests remain for the women’s basketball team, and it is still in a four-way tie for fourth place in the Big East Conference.
Along with USF, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Louisville all share a record of 8-4 in league play. The Bulls must find a way to separate themselves from the rest of the pack if they want to clinch a first-round bye in the upcoming conference tournament.
USF is coming off an impressive 78-64 road victory over Providence. Senior Jessica Dickson was back to her usual dominance, leading all scorers with 20 points, while Daiane Packer made a key contribution off the bench with a season-high 16 points.

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 […]
Student Government (SG) launched the first-of-its-kind, merit-based scholarship to students Nov. 5 on USF’s Tampa campus.
