  1. Round one of Bulls Q and A, starting with the legend of the USF airwaves, Jim Louk. From GoUSFBulls.com: Since 1983, Jim Louk has been the voice of USF Athletics. Louk came to USF that year as the radio play-by-play announcer for the USF men's basketball team and served as the lead voice until the conclusion of the 1996-97 season. He then made the transition to football in USF's inaugural 1997 campaign, and still serves as the team's play-by-play announcer today. You've seen a number of his written features over the years as well. Questions for Jim can range from this season to waaaaaaay back in the beginning of Bulls Football. Jim's Q&A from last season Please get your questions in as fast as you can. Feel free to post them here or email using this email link. My goal is to turn the questions in to Jim be end of day Wednesday, August 15th. Thanks, Brad
  2. NEW IMPACT PLAYERS HAVE MADE NOTABLE PROGRESS FOR BULLS After sitting out last season, three much-improved Bulls are putting themselves in a position to make a major impact for USF men's basketball in 2018-19.Guards Laquincy Rideau, T.J. Lang and forward Alexis Yetna have all have made huge progress in preparation for their first season of game action in determined second-year USF head coach Brian Gregory's program. Getting Rideau, Lang and Yetna into the mix for game action is an enormous plus for USF, which has been in the business of steady improvement since Gregory's arrival. In 2017-18, Gregory guided the Bulls to the program's first double-digit win season since 2013-14 and tripled the team's conference win total from 2016-17. Some good news on the MBB front.

    Looking for support

    Long time no see/post/respond! A couple of buddies and myself have started a new Twitter account to cover sports news as a whole. As the Bull Alumni of the group I wanted to reach out to you all for support! We are all Tampa Bay locals and intend to make Tampa sports a little more of a focus if we can. Eventually we intend to start a podcast. Baby steps... As our following grows we hope to bring USF even more into the twittersphere and hope that support shows how dedicated our students and fans really are! Come follow us on twitter at Relaxing Responsibly_Sports Talk or @R_RSportsTalk Cheers all , Josh -Z-
  4. Thought I would let you know since you may be killing time, waiting for Fall pracitce. The site's official gallery, BullsGallery.com, has been around for more than a decade, but has always floated out there mostly in obscurity. We will be bringing it in house to TheBullsPen.com. 2017 is transferred in, but quality control has to be done still, you can see the pics with this direct link to the 2017 galleries. Many more years to follow. Now it should be seamless to comment on an image, embed in post, share it across the site and social networks. Also, 2018 full galleries will be hosted here. As I move seasons over, they will be deleted from the BullsGallery.com domain. It will probably take a couple months to complete as I believe there are 13-14 thousand pictures.

  7. LOVE AND BASKETBALL: COLLINS HAS A SUPER STRONG HOOPS BOND WITH MOM May 13, 2018 By TOM ZEBOLD USF Senior Writer TAMPA, MAY 13, 2018 – Instead of being like Mike, David Collins wants to be just like Dorothy. On this Mother's Day, the emerging star USF guard will likely talk basketball like usual with his hero and No. 1 fan, who remains the all-time leading scorer in Youngstown State women's hoops history. "I'm always trying to get past my mom," Collins said with a smile during the season. "She still thinks she's the best basketball player in the house." This debate will go on for Collins' next few seasons in green and gold while his close relationship with Dorothy continues to grow stronger with each pregame routine that always starts the same way. "He calls me and says, 'What do you think?' I'll ask him about the scouting report and just kind of go over his game plan," Dorothy said. "… It always ends with, 'I love you. Go out and do your best no matter what. You're going to have good things, you're going to have bad things. That's just life.'" Love and basketball have always been a part of Collins' lifelong bond with Dorothy that started to grow when he was an infant. The same goes for Collins' older sister, Doriyon, who played basketball for Division II Gannon University in Erie, Pa.. "From the time they were born, they were in their little basketball outfits," said Dorothy, a former power forward. "David probably started dribbling the basketball at 2 years old." By 3, Collins would be out in the driveway early in the mornings dribbling a basketball nearly the size of him while the neighbors marveled at his ability in Youngstown, Ohio. "We would just laugh at how he could control the basketball," Dorothy said. By the time Collins suited up USF, Dorothy was amazed by her son's enhanced ball-handling skills after spending the summer working in head coach Brian Gregory's program. By the end of conference play, Dorothy was a super proud mom after watching her son put together the eighth-best scoring season in USF freshman history (10.0 ppg). Collins finished second among freshmen in The American with 11.3 points per game in league play while ranking in USF's freshman season top 10 in field goal percentage (49.7, eighth), free throw percentage (71.7, ninth), made free throws (81, fourth), free throw attempts (113, fifth), assists (65, 10th) and steals (28, ninth). "He just exceeded all of the expectations that we kind of talked about from the start. In the beginning, we were just asking the Lord if he could just get some playing time," Dorothy said. "… Dave making the conference all-rookie team, scoring and coming on strong at the end of the season, it just gave us another target to go after. I'm very impressed." Rest of Story

  9. Gregory Has Solid Returning Core in Place for 'Phase Two' April 13, 2018 By TOM ZEBOLD USF Senior Writer TAMPA, APRIL 13, 2018 – In his first run with the Bulls, ambitious head coach Brian Gregory helped rebuilding USF men's basketball make impressive progress and he'll have a solid core of players in place for "phase two." Conference all-rookie team member David Collins proved to be a steadily-improving playmaker for USF in 2017-18, which saw the Bulls reach double-digit victories for the first time since 2013-14. Also this past season, Gregory found a trusty sharpshooter in Justin Brown, who worked his way into USF's freshman top-10 list for made three-pointers. "Playing two freshmen significant minutes this year is going to bode well for the future," Gregory said. "The experiences they gained this year are going to drive their spring workouts and their summer workouts heading into next fall." Big man Nikola Scekic (7-2, 250) just scratched the surface of his potential as a junior in his first season with the Bulls while reinforcements already on the roster are eager to take the court in real games. Eligible to play next season are three 2017-18 scout team standouts - former Auburn guard T.J. Lang, former Gardner-Webb guard Laquincy Rideau and forward Alexis Yetna, a member of France's U20 squad. "I think that one of the reasons we played better at the end of the year is that all three of those guys had gotten better during the year, so our practices were so much more competitive," Gregory said.

  10. I haven't read it recently, but obviously it is the greatest sports book of all time, written by former Bulls basketball player Tony Grier. It is available on and off at Amazon for various prices - currently there is a copy for under $4.00 - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for any Bulls fan that wants to learn about the program and Tony's story. From the book's page at Amazon: The book itself is an easy read. Tony did a lot to produce it. I noticed some editorial mistakes, but it didn't take away from the passion and storytelling of USF Basketball. Learn about the Florida Four and the effort to keep sports out of USF. Lee Rose's departure. Chucky Atkins drive to make the NBA. It was released about 10 years ago. It is in paperback form only as far as I can tell. Probably time for me to break it out and read once again. Tony was kind enough to send me an autographed copy for working with him and The Bulls Pen faithful to get the word out.
  11. Men's Basketball Signs Antun Maricevic April 17, 2018 TAMPA, APRIL 17, 2018 – University of South Florida head men's basketball coach Brian Gregory and his staff announced the signing of 6-10, 240-pound center Antun Maricevic (pronounced An-TOON MAH-riss-AH-vich) on Tuesday. Maricevic will be a junior when he begins play in 2018-19 after competing for two seasons in junior college. "We are very excited to have Antun join our program," Gregory said. "His experience playing at the highest junior college level, coupled with his international experience, will allow him to make an immediate impact on our program. Playing for a terrific coach in Dan Russell at Casper College has helped prepare Antun for the transition to Division I college basketball. His work ethic, basketball IQ and skill level make him a perfect fit for what we are building here at USF." Read on

  19. Collins Posts Career-High 30 Points in USF's Close Loss to Memphis By TOM ZEBOLDUSF Senior WriterORLANDO, MARCH 8, 2018 – David Collins ended his freshman season in fantastic fashion with a career-high 30 points in no-quit USF's 79-77 loss to fifth-seeded Memphis in the opening round of the Aaron's American Athletic Conference Championship on Thursday.Collins went 11-for-13 from the field after starting 8-for-8 to become just the fifth freshman in USF history to reach the 30-point mark. The conference's all-rookie team selection poured in 21 points after the break and finished just three points shy of Radenko Dobras' USF freshman game scoring record in 1989.USF (10-22) trailed by 15 points with less than nine minutes remaining and nearly tied it up with a furious rally. Graduate guard Stephan Jiggetts finished with 16 points and made it a three-point game with a bucket from beyond the arc with 21 seconds left. Jiggetts had a chance to tie the game, but his three-point attempt narrowly missed with five seconds remaining.Isaiah Manderson (Bronx, N.Y.) added nine points and tied for the team high with five rebounds to help the Bulls finish with a 31-29 edge on the boards. USF was efficient offensively, shooting 50 percent from the field and scored 21 points off 14 turnovers by Memphis (20-12).USF never trailed in its 75-51 win at Memphis a week ago but found itself in catch-up mode from the start of Thursday's conference clash.Memphis scored the first eight points of the game, but USF kept things close early by responding with an 11-5 run. The Tigers ended up shooting 61 percent on the way to a 38-29 halftime advantage.Despite the deficit, USF's offense was solid in the first half, shooting 44 percent and matching Memphis' 16 points in the paint. Jiggetts led the way with 10 points and Collins was up to nine points after starting 4-for-4 from the field.Collins improved to 7-for-7 from the field early after the break and his highlight reel, reverse layup cut the Memphis lead to 45-39. Trailing by 15 with 9:36 to play, the Bulls dropped their deficit to seven twice down in the next three minutes and were down, 74-70, with four minutes to play after a three-pointer by Jiggetts.After Jiggetts' final three-pointer, freshman Justin Brown (Birmingham, Ala.) made a free throw and intentionally missed another with less than a second left before USF ran out of time for a tip-in attempt.QuotableHead coach Brian Gregory's thoughts on the game:"It was a great game. Give Memphis a lot of credit, I thought they played with great energy today, shot the ball really well, and at the same time give our guys credit for continuing to fight with the effort and the energy. I thought it was just a very well-played game. They got some big baskets from some guys that have made big plays for them all yearlong in Davenport and Brewton." Rest of report
  20. Bulls Open The American Championship With Memphis Matchup: USF (10-21, 3-15 AAC) vs. Memphis (19-12, 10-8 AAC) Date: Thursday, March 8, 2018 Time: 2 p.m. Location: Orlando, Fla. | Amway Center (18,500) TV: ESPNU (Kevin Brown, John Thompson III) Radio: AM 820 | USF Bulls Unlimited (Jim Lighthall, Joey Johnston) Follow: Listen | Stats | Twitter GAME NOTES (PDF) ORLANDO, MAR. 7, 2018 – The Bulls head into the first round of the Aaron's American Athletic Conference Championship on Thursday riding a high after a two-game winning streak and some accolades in the days that have followed. The Bulls (10-21, 3-15 AAC) have a rematch with Memphis on Thursday at 2 p.m. to open the conference championship. The game will be broadcast on ESPNU. USF faced the Tigers just one week ago, last Thursday, and handed Memphis their worst home loss in the history of the FedEx Forum and their worst home loss in any building since 1999, 75-51. The Bulls followed up their triumph in Tennessee with a big win in the regular season finale on Sunday, defeating SMU at home, 65-54. The back-to-back victories gave the Bulls double digit wins for the first time since the 2013-14 season, and gave them back-to-back conference wins for the first time since 2016. The Bulls will look to extend the streak to three games on Thursday. Should they succeed, the Bulls would have a three game winning streak in conference for the first time since 2012, when the team made it to the NCAA Tournament. Since wrapping up the regular season on Sunday, a couple of Bulls have taken home conference honors. Malik Martin (Miami, Fla.) was named to the American Athletic Conference weekly honor roll for the second time this season. In the 2-0 week for USF, Martin led the team in both scoring and rebounding, averaging 17.0 points and 7.5 boards per game. Martin made 15-of-19 attempts from the field and knocked down 3-of-4 shots from three. His best game of the week came in Memphis, when he posted 19 points and nine rebounds. The 19 points are his second-most this season, behind his double-double against Arkansas State on Nov. 24. Rest of story
  21. TAMPA, MARCH 5, 2018 – USF freshman guard David Collins was named to the American Athletic Conference All-Rookie team on Monday, recognizing his stellar freshman campaign for the Bulls. The announcement of Collins' selection to the All-Rookie team comes one day after the freshman tied his career high in points with 21 in the victory over SMU to conclude the regular season. Collins got hot in the second half, scoring 18 in the closing frame, the most scored by a Bull in any half this season. "I'd be hard pressed to say he's not the rookie of the year," USF head coach Brian Gregory said. "You look at statistical analysis, he's had as good of a freshman year as anyone in the league, and statistically probably better. I think he's second in scoring, first in assists, first in steals. He's had as good of a year as any freshman around, and he's had as big of an impact as any freshman." Collins is the fourth Bull to ever be named to The American All-Rookie team. John Egbunu and Chris Perry both made the team in 2014, while Jahmal McMurray was the most recent in 2016. Rest of story
