  1. Creating since there doesn't appear to be one. Feel free to merge/eliminate otherwise.
  2. With roughly a quarter of the conference season completed, I wanted to share my updated post season projections for the AAC. If you don't like projections, then keep it moving. Teams are ranked by their current NET Ranking:
  3. Bulls Travel to UCF Saturday for War on I-4 Clash January 17, 2020 Story Links Game Notes (PDF) Matchup: USF (8-9, 1-3) vs. UCF (10-7, 1-4) Date: Saturday, Jan. 18 Time: 6 p.m. Location: Orlando, Fla. | Addition Financial Arena TV: ESPNU (Dave LaMont, Mark Adams) Radio: Bulls Unlimited (Jim Lighthall, Joey Johnston) Follow: Listen | Watch | Live Stats | Twitter TAMPA, FLA., JAN. 17, 2020 – The USF men's basketball team looks to return to its winning ways Saturday at 6 p.m. when the Bulls travel to Orlando to face UCF at Addition Financial Arena in the first installment of the War on I-4. USF (8-9, 1-3) nearly knocked off No. 21 Memphis last Sunday behind 24 points, four rebounds and four steals from junior guard David Collins (Youngstown, Ohio). Ezacuras Dawson III (Miami) added 15 points, made three 3-pointers and dished out a career-high five assists, while Justin Brown (Atlanta) and Michael Durr (Atlanta) each chipped in with nine points. Collins, who turned in the 18th 20-point game of his career Sunday against Memphis, leads USF and ranks sixth in The American with 15.1 points per game. He also stands as one of the top defenders in the league and is third in the conference and 34th in the NCAA with 2.1 steals per game. Senior guard Laquincy Rideau (West Palm Beach, Fla.) is second on the team and 19th in the league with 12.9 points per game. Rideau also ranks first in the league and sixth in the NCAA with 2.7 steals per game and needs just four more thefts to move into fifth place for the most career steals in conference history with 151. He also ranks fourth in The American with 4.4 assists per game and is attempting to become the first player to lead the league in assists in back-to-back seasons. Brown checks in third on the team with 8.2 points per game to go along with a team-high 30 three-pointers made, while Durr tops the squad with 6.4 rebounds per game. Dawson adds 7.5 points per game and is third in the league with a .426 three-point field goal percentage. THE OPPONENT UCF (10-7, 1-4) snapped a five-game losing streak Tuesday with a 74-55 victory at Tulane to give the Knights their first victory since Dec. 18 against Bethune-Cookman. UCF jumped out to a 15-point lead in the first 10 minutes and would go on to lead by as many as 32 en route to its first victory in league play. forward Colin Smith paces UCF with 13.5 points per game and is second on the team with 6.5 rebounds per game. Junior guard Ceasar DeJesus adds 10.7 points per game and is shooting a team-high 52.3 percent from the field. Senior guard Dazon Ingram leads the Knights with 7.8 rebounds per game to go along with 9.1 points per game. QUOTABLE "This is a great rivalry and this is something that we have embraced. Central Florida maybe played its best game in the last month the other night with a big win at Tulane. It's very difficult to get a road win in this league. We've played pretty well in league play, but now we need to take another step. We need to keep getting better and we need to make plays down the stretch that help us finish games. It's a big opportunity for a response for our guys. It's going to be a great challenge for us, and we have a lot of respect for them and for Coach Dawkins. " — USF Head Coach Brian Gregory NOTABLE • USF is 22-17 against UCF in the all-time series that dates back to the 1971-72 season. • USF has played seven games this season decided by 10 points or less. • USF ranks 25th in the NCAA with 8.9 steals per game and has at least eight in 13 of 17 games this season. • David Collins has made 359 career free throws and ranks third all-time in school history. • USF ranks 26th in the NCAA in turnovers forced with 17.1 per game. • Laquincy Rideau ranks sixth in the NCAA with 2.7 steals per game. • USF is 15-4 since the start of last season when Justin Brown scores in double figures. • USF ranks 50th in the NCAA in scoring defense by allowing just 62.7 points per game. • USF has held 15 of its 17 opponents under their season scoring average. • David Collins ranks 17th all-time at USF in scoring with 1,098 career points. • Ezacuras Dawson III ranks third in The American with a .426 three-point field goal percentage. • Justin Brown has made the 10th-most career three-pointers in school history with 130.
  4. 3 pairs including those at midcourt, first row. If you are in the 2019 donation group and would like a set, please reply here. I will randomly give away three pairs of different value. I do not have the time to do an official giveaway. I will be better with future giveaways/member point raffles but need to distribute these now. Going forward it will be for the soon to be created 2020 donation group. Thanks, Brad
  5. We are 1-4 this year in games decided by 6 points or less and we lost 7 games last year by 6 or less points. This team has a real problem in running any coherent offense late in games and alot of it has to do with the decision to have David Collins generate offense in the half court. Collins has been a complete disaster in all four of those losses and should not be asked to generate the offense in the half court late in games (as evidence by his team worst assist-to-turnover ratio). In the last 5 minutes and OT of those four losses this year he has: Shot 4 of 15 from the field (26.7%) Shot 1 of 5 from three point range (20.0%) Shot 3 of 10 on shots less than 3 feet from the basket (30.0%) Failed to take a single shot between 4 and 22 feet Shot 8 of 13 from the free throw line (61.5%) Committed 5 turnovers Had 1 assist Comitted 5 fouls The entire offense has been mismanaged late in games and Collins is the best example. While he is our best finisher, he should be on the receiving end of other generating offense or setting picks. Any half court set where Collins take more than one dribble usually ends up turning out bad. Its inexcusable for this team to be able to perform so well in the first 30 minutes of games only to see them take the air out of the ball and choke away program-impacting wins. For example: One made field goal in the last 13:14 of the Memphis game Two made field goals in the last 6:39 of the East Carolina game Zero made field goals in the last 6:31 of the Florida State game (not counting Rideau's uncontested garbage lay up with :03 to go) This isn't Collins' fault - he is who he is, but Gregory is doing him no favors by running an offense that is solely predicated on him taking it to the basket late in games. We haven't and won't win games late doing this. How many more close losses have to pile up before the coaching staff runs an offense that frees up finishers like Collins, and not ask him to be something he is not?
  6. You can get a look at the 6'10" USF signee right now for Oak Hill.
  7. While our half court offense this year has been a disaster to watch, its important to put things in perspective. Since Offensive Efficiency (OER) became a statistic (1997-98 season) USF: has never ranked any better than 117 in a single season (1990-00 season) has averaged 281 over the past 10 years, with 222 being the best ranking over that time frame Without Yetna our OER is exactly the same as last year (Friscobull makes a good point this this may get worse as we get into conference play) Men's basketball just hasn't been able to recruit or coach offense since we let Greenberg walk to Virginia Tech. Regardless of how you feel about Yetna's impact on the offense this would have been a slightly below average offense, at-best. Until the program can recruit better offensive players AND most importantly coach offense the program will continue to be a dumpster fire.
  8. Bulls Host No. 21 Memphis Sunday on ESPN2 January 11, 2020 Story Links Game Notes (PDF) Matchup: USF (8-8, 1-2) vs. Memphis (12-3, 1-1) Date: Sunday, Jan. 12 Time: 4 p.m. Location: Tampa, Fla. | Yuengling Center TV: ESPN2 (Bob Wischusen, **** Vitale) Radio: Bulls Unlimited (Jim Lighthall, Joey Johnston) Follow: Listen | Watch | Live Stats | Twitter TAMPA, FLA., JAN. 11, 2020 – The USF men's basketball team looks for its first win over a ranked team this season when the Bulls welcome No. 21 Memphis to the Yuengling Center Sunday at 4 p.m. for a matchup broadcast live on ESPN2.

In addition, Vitale was instrumental in ushering in the Yuengling Center when he called the dedication game in 1980 when the Bulls hosted Duke in Mike Krzyzewski's second career game with the Blue Devils. Last season against Memphis, USF raced out to a 19-0 lead and later held a 27-1 advantage before the Tigers made their first field goal. Memphis rallied in the second half and pulled within single digits, but 20 points from David Collins (Youngstown, Ohio) and 19 from Justin Brown (Atlanta) lifted USF to an 84-78 win. USF will attempt to defeat Memphis for the second straight time for the first time in school history. USF (8-8, 1-2) suffered a heartbreaking 62-59 loss Tuesday at East Carolina despite receiving 16 points, four rebounds, four assists and four steals from senior guard Laquincy Rideau (West Palm Beach, Fla.) Rideau enters play Sunday third in The American with 4.3 assists per game and first with 2.7 steals per game in his quest to become the first player in league history to lead in both categories in back-to-back seasons. Rideau also stands second on the team with 13.4 points per game and is third in rebounding with 4.6 boards per contest. Collins added 14 points and four rebounds Tuesday against East Carolina.

Collins also records 2.1 steals per game to rank third in The American and 36th in the NCAA, making USF the only school in the NCAA with two players ranked in the top 40 in steals per game.

Brown is also third on the squad with 8.2 points per game and has made a team-best 27 three-pointers. Sophomore Michael Durr (Atlanta) tops USF with 6.5 rebounds per game and ranks 16th in The American. THE OPPONENT Memphis (12-3, 1-1) has dropped its last two games after falling 76-67 at Wichita State on Thursday night. The Tigers trailed by as many as 19 points in the second half before trimming the lead down to six, but Wichita State pushed the lead back to double digits in the final three minutes to hang on for the victory. Memphis saw its 10-game winning streak snapped the game before in a 65-62 home loss to Georgia. Freshman forward Precious Achiuwa leads Memphis and ranks third in The American with 15.1 points per game. Achiuwa also paces the Tigers and the conference with 10.3 rebounds per game. Freshman forward D.J. Jeffries adds 11.4 points per game and freshman guard Lester Quinones stands third on the team with 10.6 points per game. QUOTABLE "There is definitely a lot of buzz around town and campus in regards to the game, and we're very excited about the opportunity to play a top 25 team like Memphis. They've got a ton of talent and Coach Hardaway has done a great job with them because they play so hard too. It's going to be a great challenge for us." — USF Head Coach Brian Gregory NOTABLE • USF is 6-26 against Memphis in the all-time series that dates back to the 1972-73 season. • USF is in search of its first win over a ranked team since defeating No. 19 Louisville in 2012. • USF ranks 29th in the NCAA with 8.9 steals per game and has at least eight in 12 of 16 games this year. • David Collins has made 348 career free throws and ranks third all-time in school history. • USF ranks 31st in the NCAA in turnovers forced with 16.9 per game. • Laquincy Rideau ranks seventh in the NCAA with 2.7 steals per game. • USF is 15-4 since the start of last season when Justin Brown scores in double figures. • USF ranks 45th in the NCAA in scoring defense by allowing just 62.4 points per game. • USF has held 14 of its 16 opponents under their season scoring average. • David Collins ranks 17th all-time at USF in scoring with 1,074 career points. • Ezacuras Dawson III ranks seventh in The American with a .415 three-point field goal percentage. • Justin Brown has made the 10th-most career three-pointers in school history with 127.

  18. USF coming in at 176. https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/basketball-men/d1/ncaa-mens-basketball-net-rankings Wins: Wofford - 152 Loyola Chicago - 176 Furman - 102 Dartmouth - 168 Drexel - 239 Losses: Boston College - 143 IUPUI - 285 New Mexico State - 108 Nebraska - 153 AAC looking pretty strong with Wichita State (14), Memphis (16), Temple (49), Houston (68) UConn (69), SMU (88), UCF (88), Cincinnati (110), Tulsa (121), Tulane (127) and ECU (243). That IUPUI loss feels even worse now, but I think they've turned the page on that effort and we'll see more of what we saw the last couple of games moving forward. It will take a monumental effort to get just one of the next two against Utah State (47) and FSU (27), but if they can steal one of those or even keep them close, I'll be optimistic going into conference play.
