Though the Bulls’ men’s
soccer team is on a three-game losing streak, it is hoping for a repeat of last year, attempting to win back-to-back AAC tournaments.
The quarterfinals of the tournament start Saturday with USF hosting Memphis.
The Bulls’ losing streak began with a 2-1 loss to Memphis on Oct. 25, and since then, they have not been able to find the back of the net.
In this three-game span, USF’s struggles haven’t been a lack of opportunity, as the team has 37 shots compared to its opponents’ 20 shots. The problem is getting the shots on target.
The opposing goalkeepers during this losing streak had to make seven saves and conceded just one goal. The bulls have only shot eight of 37 shots on target.
The Bulls’ corner sets have also been ineffective in this three-game span, even though they outgain their opponents in corners 21 to six.
The Bulls will be looking to defend the AAC title this year, this time starting off in the
No. 4 seed. The Bulls will play the Memphis Tigers, who are entering the tournament in the No. 5 seed.
The winner of Saturday’s matchup will play the winner of the game between No. 1 seed UConn and No. 8 seed Temple.
USF will face off against Memphis this Saturday at 7 p.m. in Corbett Stadium.
