Bulls look to rebound against Houston
With a blowout loss to the defending champion UConn Huskies behind them, the USF women’s basketball team travels to play Houston tonight at 8 in the hopes of igniting another winning streak.
The Bulls will look to get back to their winning ways against Houston after being held to a measly 26 percent shooting performance and scoring their lowest point total of the season (50) Sunday.
Houston sits near the bottom of the AAC standings, winning only one of its last six conference games.
The Bulls have had quite a different experience in conference play, winning their first five AAC matchups before falling to No. 2 UConn.
An area where USF could find success against the Cougars is on the glass. Houston ranks dead last in the conference in rebounding margin (-8.7) and second to last in scoring margin (-8.6).
Comparatively, USF ranks fourth in scoring margin (9.7) and second in rebounding margin (7.1).
The loss to UConn was, in some ways, expected — with the Huskies not losing a game for the entirety of last season — but it is no reason for a team that won eight straight games prior to hang their heads.
USF ranks near the top of the conference in nearly every category this season, including scoring offense (second), free-throw percentage (first) and rebounding offense (first).
During their previous eight-game winning streak, the Bulls outscored their opponent by an average of 19.5 points and only scored below 67 points once.
One loss doesn’t define a season, and for the Bulls, they will have to have a short memory and get back on track against the Cougars.
