The USF women’s basketball team continues to stay hot with its seventh straight win Sunday, beating Temple (7-10, 3-10) 70-58 in Philadelphia.
USF (13-3, 4-0) gained ground in the first few minutes of the game and never looked back, maintaining the lead from start to finish. With a 15-point lead at halftime, the Bulls remained consistent in the second half, limiting Temple to 29 percent shooting from the field. This was the fourth consecutive game in which USF held its opponent to less than 30 percent shooting.
The Bulls shot 51 percent and knocked down three crucial 3-pointers in the first half. Junior guard Courtney Williams made the Temple defense crumble, coming away with another double-double, with 21 points and 12 rebounds.
In the second half, the Bulls were ahead by as much as 22 points thanks to the play of sophomore center Katelyn Weber, who grabbed 11 rebounds and shot 4-5 from the field for eight points. USF outscored Temple 38-18 in the paint, proving to be too much for the Owls to handle down low. Additionally, the Bulls came away with 18 fast break points compared to Temple’s two.
Looking forward, USF returns home for its next game Wednesday at 7 p.m. against SMU. The Mustangs (4-10) have yet to win a game on the road this season or in conference play.
