Two Bulls named AAC Player of the Week
Junior guard Courtney Williams and senior guard Corey Allen Jr. both received the AAC Player of the Week Award on Monday after impressive offensive performances in last week’s games.
USF women’s basketball nearly swept the Paradise Jam Tournament in the U.S. Virgin Islands, but was edged out by No. 9 Kentucky, 61-57, in the finals.
Williams averaged 22.3 points in the Bulls’ three tournament games along with 7.3 rebounds and three assists.
The junior dropped a season-high 27 points in Thursday’s first-round matchup against Oklahoma, following up with a double-double — 18 points and 12 rebounds — in Friday’s matchup with Illinois.
With a game-high 23 points in the tournament championship against Kentucky, Williams is only 31 points shy of becoming the 21st 1,000-point scorer in USF history.
Allen averaged 23.5 points in two games for USF, including wins over Hofstra (71-70) and Jacksonville (79-65).
The senior guard was the first Conference Player of the Week for the men’s team this season.
Allen scored a career-high 29 points in USF’s 14-point win over Jacksonville on Saturday. He ranks third in the conference with 15.8 points per game, behind UConn’s Ryan Boatright and East Carolina’s B.J. Tyson.
The men’s team will play at Alabama tonight at 9, and the women’s team will play at home against Stetson on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

USF softball midseason report card
Halfway through its disappointing season, USF softball has garnered nearly as many losses as their previous season total.
