The USF women’s tennis team will have to wait until Friday morning to play their first match in the Big East Tournament.
The No. 39-ranked Bulls earned the No. 2 seed in the tournament, giving them a first-round bye. USF will play the winner of the match between No.7-seed DePaul and No. 10-seed Cincinnati. Coach Agustin Moreno said his team is ready for either opponent.
“We didn’t play either team during the regular season,” Moreno said. “We know it’s going to be one of the two, and we are going to stay focused on our goal.”
The Bulls have many weapons at their disposal. Senior Shadisha Robinson is ranked No. 33 in the country. Junior Courtney Vernon is ranked No. 44. The duo makes USF one of only eight schools to have multiple players ranked in the nation’s top 50.
“It is good to have players like Robinson and Vernon on the team,” Moreno said. “We need to be a team to win, though. I think this has been a great team up to this point.”
The Bulls finished the regular season with a 12-7 record, including a perfect 2-0 record in the Big East. USF will attempt to improve upon its runner-up status from a year ago.
USF plays its first match at 9 a.m. Friday.

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 […]
