Women’s tennis battles injuries
The USF women’s tennis team has a slew of injuries to deal with.
With a number of its players battling injuries, USF will host its last home match of the season against No. 73 Boston University on Saturday at 11 a.m. at the USF Varsity Tennis Courts.
“It’s going to be a tough match for us, especially with all the injuries we are going through,” coach Agustin Moreno said. “But (the match) will be a good test for our team. We are going to battle hard and try to come out on top.”

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.
