Coming off two wins against teams in ESPN’s top-50 RPI, the USF women’s basketball team received its first ranking in program history in the USA Today Top-25 Poll.
The Bulls’ two wins this season came last weekend when they defeated Villanova 57-56 on a neutral court and Chattanooga 59-57 on the road. These tough wins proved to be enough to garner the Bulls the No. 25 ranking in the poll’s latest installment.
Sunday marked the first home loss for Chattanooga in 41 games, ending a 40-game home winning streak that was previously the longest in the nation.
Although this has been the start USF (2-0) hoped for, there are still challenges ahead. With games against Oklahoma and Kentucky later this month, the team will look to continue grinding out victories. Kentucky is currently ranked ninth in the nation and Oklahoma is receiving votes.
Over the first two games, junior guard Courtney Williams was a standout performer for the Bulls, averaging 18 points and nine rebounds and earning AAC Honor Roll mention.
Williams and the rest of the team continue their road trip Wednesday night at Maryland to face the No. 8 Terrapins at 7 p.m. These two teams have only met one previous time, with Maryland winning the 2013 season opener in the Sun Dome, 78-70.
The Bulls are looking for not only redemption, but also an upset before returning for their home opener Saturday at 2 p.m. against UNC-Asheville.
In its conference opener, USF volleyball overcame a taller Tulane team 3-2 on Wednesday in The Corral. The Bulls (7-5) lost the first set 25-21 but were able to bounce back to win the second and third sets 25-23 and 25-16. With a chance to seal the game against The Green Wave (4-9), they lost […]
The message each week is clear for the Bulls – they need to show consistency and continue to improve. Heading into their fourth game of the season, both defensive and offensive coordinators Todd Orlando and Joel Gordon said there are no excuses for mistakes and it’s time to start seeing some wins. All eyes will […]
After a spirited battle against No. 13 Alabama last Saturday, USF football is hungry to turn their effort into a win this week against Rice. It’s an eerily similar position to last year in which the Bulls (1-2) almost defeated then-ranked No. 17 Florida 31-28. The next week, USF lost to Louisville in a 41-3 […]
USF football graduate safety Daquan Evans was named American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week on Monday. He is the first Bulls football player to receive weekly conference honors since 2018.

USF men’s soccer caught a 2-1 victory against Elon Sunday night at Corbett Stadium, with graduate forward Jalen Anderson netting two crucial goals in the second half. While this is Anderson’s first season as a Bull (2-4, 0-0 AAC), it isn’t the first time he’s played against the Phoenix (1-3-3, 0-1-1 CAA). As a member […]
A crowd of 65,138 attendees witnessed USF give an elite opponent a tougher battle than expected in a 17-3 loss to No. 10 Alabama at Raymond James Stadium on Saturday. The Crimson Tide (1-2) were 34-point favorites by DraftKings, but USF (1-2) was only a touchdown away from upsetting a top-ten team in the country […]
