A teammate with current Bulls standout Kristyna Brabencova (Brno, Czech Republic) on the Czech Republic U20 National Team, Vitulova scored in double-figures in 22 of Wyoming’s 29 games, including six games of 20-plus points. She scored a career-high 30 points against San Diego State in Laramie, with her next-best scoring game being 28 points against San Diego State on the road. She had her only career double-double on the road against Air Force with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Internationally, Vitulova has played for the Czech Republic’s U18 and U20 national teams, along with Brabencova. During the summer of 2019, she averaged 9.0 points per game and 4.3 rebounds per outing in the FIBA U20 European Championships.

Surprised that it has not been mentioned all ready, but I received an email yesterday from USF athletics with a perk for basketball season ticket holders, where you can get free tickets to four different "Fall" sports. You can get up to 4 tickets per sport (MBB for me). Email stated: Thank you for being a fan of USF Basketball! We appreciate your continued support, and as a thank you from us, we are providing each Bulls Basketball season ticket holder up to 4 additional tickets to a selected game of each fall sport we have at USF! Come out and help pack the stands and give our team a hometown advantage! Good opportunity to see some other USF sporting events. I've all ready claimed 4 BYU football tickets and two tickets for volleyball this Friday. I have some time to claim men's and women's soccer tickets. I assume by the wording, that this offer includes WBB season ticket holders; but don't know for sure.

    Board member @BDYZR offered this item for the Bulls Football Crowdfund Raffles in order to raise funds for USF Football and our $23 for 23 IPF effort. It is a Yuengling embroidered hat on which BDYZR collected many autographs (in the historical Yuengling Center) from members of the Men's and Women's Basketball teams. Autographs include key players and are in dark sharpie. See pictures (click to expand). In my review, I see autographs from Michael Durr, David Collins and LaQuincy Rideau among many others. According to BDYZR, the hat has been autographed by all of both men's and women's teams from last year. The pins on the sides of the hat remain with BDYZR, however. A nice addition to the man or woman cave for teams we know are on the rise and should have exceptional seasons in 2019-20. BDYZR will deliver in Tampa or take care of shipping if necessary. Your purchased raffle tickets for this item goes directly to the $23 for 23 fund and drives us towards our goal of $10,000 at the end of this month.
