  1. USF ATHLETICS GoUSFBulls.com FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Web Link: http://bit.ly/2TimlZe Bulls Drop Midweek Tilt at UNF Tuesday USF matched the Ospreys with eight hits JACKSONVILLE, FLA., MARCH 19, 2019 – Despite eight hits for both sides, the USF baseball team dropped Tuesday night’s midweek matchup at North Florida, 7-2. The Bulls (11-8) were playing from behind early on, as the Ospreys (14-9) scored three runs in the first. USF didn’t tally its first hit until a Kyle Phillips (Orlando) single to lead off the top of the fourth. UNF doubled its lead with another three-spot in the bottom of the inning on just one hit. The Bulls finally threatened in the top of the sixth. Jordan Santos (Tampa) led off the inning with a walk, then Phillips beat out an infield single. Classmate Joe Genord (Lake Worth, Fla.) walked to load the bags with no outs. Two batters later, redshirt sophomore Jake Sullivan (Tampa) drove a sac fly to center, scoring Santos to make it 6-1. USF cut into the lead in the seventh, as Garrett Zech (Naples, Fla.) doubled down the left field line to move Alex Bello (Miami) to third. Santos grounded out, but it allowed Bello to score and make it 6-2. The Bulls had another opportunity in the top of the eighth with the bases load, but could not bring in a run. UNF was able to add to the edge with a run in the bottom half to attain another five-run lead. Zech led off the ninth with his second double, but that was all the Bulls would get. Key Stats 2 – Phillips, Zech and junior Austin Bodrato (Northvale, N.J.) each had two hits apiece. Nota-Bulls · Zech’s two doubles were a career high. · Bodrato has hit in four-straight games, three being multi-hit games. · Santos worked his conference best 19th walk of the season. Up Next The Bulls begin American Athletic Conference action Friday at home with a three-game series against Cincinnati. First pitch is set for 7 p.m.
  2. There were a few guys...I learned about enjoying “neat” but I went with the large cube. Since I never drank bourbon before, I only had a couple and went with a choice of the more widely available (less exotic) bourbons. I had Maker’s on the far left and a Larceny. I’m going to put together a transition plan to make bourbon a greater part of my life. A little less porter and more bourbon. A good balance of both.
  3. Did someone say we play Utah Valley State if we beat SB? That will be something for me. UVU features a kid I know from youth basketball days here in AZ. Not to mention Grand Canyon University is in it too.
  4. For profit tournament run by a non-NCAA group.
  5. People used to talk the same way about the NIT (Not Invited Tournament). Now that there's the CBI, the NIT is okay, I guess. The NIT winner ain't winning nothing outside of a participation trophy either.
  6. Some teams have done well getting that extra action - Loyola, Nevada come to mind. If you could agree the con-conference schedule was the type of schedule this fledgling team needed, you might agree this postseason experience can be equally fitting for this stage of the program. I think had we just come off the NCAA tournaments, maybe I'd feel differently. Right now, I am just happy to get more work for this team.

BULLS RETURN TO POSTSEASON, HOST STONY BROOK WEDNESDAY IN CBI March 17, 2019 Story Links 2019 CBI Bracket (PDF) TAMPA, MARCH 17, 2019 – The USF men's basketball team makes its return to the postseason for the first time since 2012, as the Bulls were selected to play in the 2019 College Basketball Invitational and will host Stony Brook Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Yuengling Center. USF season ticket members will receive an email Sunday night allowing them the opportunity to keep their same seats for Wednesday's game. Single-game tickets for the general public will go on sale Monday at noon and can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.com. All 100 level seats can be purchased for $17 and all 200 level seats will be sold for $12. USF students will receive free admission thanks to the generosity of the USF Bulls Club members. USF will also provide a live BullsVision video stream of the game on www.GoUSFBulls.com and it can be heard live on 820 AM and the Bulls Unlimited channel on iHeartRadio. The College Basketball Invitational (CBI) is a single-elimination tournament consisting of 16 teams that compete on home courts. The championship is determined through a best two-out-of-three series format featuring the final two teams that will be broadcast live on ESPNU. The 2019 CBI field includes USF, Stony Brook, West Virginia, Grand Canyon, Coastal Carolina, Howard, Utah Valley, Cal State Northridge, DePaul, Central Michigan, Longwood, Southern Miss, Cal Baptist, Loyola Marymount, Brown and UAB. "We're excited to have the opportunity to play in the postseason and continue to build upon what we've already accomplished this year," USF head coach Brian Gregory said. "Our players have worked extremely hard from the outset of the season to compete in postseason play. This tournament is a quality step in our process and will provide our team with valuable experience that we can use in years to come, and we can't wait to get back in front of our fans on Wednesday at the Yuengling Center." USF (19-13) is in the midst of one of its greatest seasons in school history and has already tied for the fifth-most single-season wins in program history. The Bulls also finished the regular season with eight wins in American Athletic Conference play to mark its most in league history, which is also tied for the amount of AAC wins over the previous three years combined. The Bulls will be competing in the postseason for the 12th time in program history and making their first appearance in the CBI. USF has made three appearances in the NCAA Tournament and eight trips to the NIT. Individually, redshirt junior Laquincy Rideau (West Palm Beach, Fla.) was named the 2019 AAC Defensive Player of the Year to become the first such winner in USF school history. Forward Alexis Yetna (Paris) was tabbed the 2019 AAC Freshman of the Year to mark the first time USF has featured a Freshman of the Year since 1979, when the Bulls were a member of the Sun Belt Conference. Sophomore David Collins (Youngstown, Ohio) and Rideau were both named All-Conference Third Team to become the first two Bulls in AAC history to be named all-conference. Yetna was a unanimous selection to the All-Freshman Team, joining Collins as the only two Bulls in school history to be named to the AAC all-freshman team. Stony Brook (24-8, 12-4) finished in second place in the America East Conference but was upset in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament by Binghamton. The Seawolves are led by First Team All-Conference member Akwasi Yeboah, who led the team in scoring (16.6 ppg) and rebounding (7.8 rpg) during the campaign that featured wins over a Southeastern Conference opponent (South Carolina) and a pair of Atlantic 10 opponents (Rhode Island and George Washington). Stony Brook also defeated Northern Iowa, who advanced to the championship game in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament. Stony Brook also features the Sixth Man of the Year in the America East, redshirt-sophomore Andrew Garcia and the Defensive Player of the Year, sophomore Jeff Otchere.

  10. "Final game" is a best of three series? And appears to be on ESPNU.
  11. We beat the two AAC teams in the NIT, but that sputter down the stretch removed any luster.
