QUOTABLE USF Head Coach Brian Gregory on the matchup with Wichita State: "I thought we were very good defensively against Wichita State in the first matchup, but we're going to have to do a better job rebounding the ball. I thought some of their offensive rebounds hurt us. We have to find ways, when we're in a lull offensively, to manufacture some points, either in transition or with the offensive glass. I think we're playing better than we were when we faced them earlier. We're rebounding the ball better, especially offensively, and other than the first 20 minutes against Tulsa, the way we've played is much more competitive and capable of beating some of the best teams in the league. Wichita State is one of the toughest places to play in the country, but our guys have responded to those environments, so I think our guys are looking forward to the challenge."

QUOTABLE USF Head Coach Brian Gregory on the matchup with Tulsa: "It doesn't get any easier. We're playing the second-place team in the league. Frank has done such a good job with them. They are a very veteran team with only one freshman in the playing group, everybody else is an upperclassman. They've really been carried by their juniors and seniors. This is another great opportunity for us to play another high-quality opponent in our league. We have to bounce back and put Wednesday night behind us. We have to continue to play with that same energy and same focus that we had the other night against a very good Houston team."

We're moving the ball better, making better decisions with the ball and getting a lot of good basketball with a lot of different guys. We had a big road win on Saturday afternoon against Memphis, and you hope to continue that against the best team in the league in Houston. They have a tremendous coach and they are so well balanced. You can't key on one guy and you can't key on one specific area of the game. You have to have a well-balanced attack both offensively and defensively to put yourself in position to get a big win."

Hopefully we'll be able to build on our big win on Saturday and our win on the road the week before. We're going to have to do every aspect of our game, from our transition game to our defense and our offense, a little bit better to play against the talent that Memphis is able to put on the court."

  20. Does anyone have insight into what brought the students out for today's game against UCF? It's been a long time since I've seen so many students attend a USF basketball game. Playing a rival and a good start time tell part of the story but I'm guessing there was some marketing that finally clicked to bring everyone out.
  21. Bulls Host UCF Saturday in Autism Awareness Game January 31, 2020 Story Links Game Notes (PDF) Matchup: USF (9-12, 2-6) vs. UCF (11-9, 2-6) Date: Saturday, Feb. 1 Time: 4 p.m. (EST) Location: Tampa, Fla. | Yuengling Center TV: ESPNU (Anish Shroff, Mark Wise) Radio: Bulls Unlimited (Jim Lighthall, Joey Johnston) Follow: Listen | Watch | Live Stats | Twitter TAMPA, FLA., JAN. 31, 2020 – The USF men's basketball team opens the month of February on Saturday at 4 p.m. when the Bulls welcome in-state rival UCF to the Yuengling Center for the second round of the War on I4 and the program's Autism Awareness Game. The Coaches Powering Forward for Autism initiative was created in 2014 by USF assistant coach Tom Herrion and Towson head coach Pat Skerry. The duo founded the project to help raise awareness about autism, which affects an estimated 1 in 59 children in the United States today and more than 70 million people worldwide. Inspired by their sons, both diagnosed with autism, Herrion and Skerry made a simple request to fellow coaches – wear the Autism Speaks blue puzzle piece pin during the televised February weekend games. In an overwhelming response, more than 82 NCAA coaches and broadcasters took to the sidelines and airwaves throughout that weekend in 2014, wearing the puzzle pin. By 2018, the support soared to 375 NCAA coaches wearing the pins and more than 420 schools showing their support of people with autism. The 2020 goal is to continue to grow this initiative to include all Division I programs, along with other divisions and provide basketball coaches, their teams and schools with an even greater opportunity to increase global understanding and acceptance of people with autism. USF (9-12, 2-6) returning to its winning ways on Wednesday with a 66-52 victory at Tulane behind 14 points, eight rebounds, four assists and three steals from junior guard David Collins (Youngstown, Ohio).

Collins also stands 60th in the NCAA with 1.9 steals per game and is second on the team with 37 assists. Redshirt senior guard Laquincy Rideau (West Palm Beach, Fla.) also scored 14 points to go along with three assists against the Green Wave. Rideau adds 11.9 points per game and is second in the league and 17th in the nation with 2.4 steals per game.

Junior guard Ceasar DeJesus adds 11.1 points per game and shoots 50.9 percent from the field, while senior Dazon Ingram leads the team with 7.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. QUOTABLE USF Head Coach Brian Gregory on the matchup with UCF: "It's interesting how the schedule works out. We've each only played two games since the first meeting, so not a lot of changes in either team. I thought it was a really good college basketball game the first time we played. Both teams defended really well, but at the end they made a couple of big plays, so give them credit for that. I think over the last two weeks we've tightened up some things, and I think we're a better team. Now you need to go out there and execute your offensive and defensive game plan for 40 minutes. It's a game that means a lot to us and we need to go out there and play that way, and I thought we did that in game one. I think we're gonna have a great crowd, but we have to go out there and play well to be successful."

  24. For returning players averaging 3.5 points per game or more these are their statistical imporvement/decline compared to their 2018-19 statistics: PPG FG% 3FG% FT% As/GM Rb/GM St/GM David Collins Down Up Down Down Down Down Down Laquincy Rideau Down Down Down Down Down Up Down Justin Brown Down Down Down Up Down Up Same Michael Durr Up Down Same Up Down Same Same Xavier Castaneda Up Up Up Same Down Up Up I know alot of people point to Yetna as being the primary driver behind the lost season, but where is the impact in coaching and developing other players in the team? Asists are down across the board and yet we returned out top 3 assist men from last season. Only Casteneda looks to have improved statistically in the quality metrics and his counting metrics are bouyed by the increase in minutes played this year. Gregory no doubt gets a pass for this season, but I am underwhelmed by the improvement in any of our top 5 returning players from last year. We are only averaging 48.7 ppg over our last 3 and only 53.8 ppg over our last 5.
