  2. BEATRIZ JORDAO TO MISS REMAINDER OF 2018-19 SEASON WITH INJURY January 03, 2019 TAMPA, Fla. Jan. 3, 2019 – USF women's basketball freshman center Beatriz Jordao (Pombal, Portugal), a strong presence in the paint and efficient shooter for the Bulls, will miss the remainder of the 2018-19 season due to a leg injury. Jordao has battled the injury in her left leg since late in November and it previously caused her to miss games against Grambling State (Dec. 15) and Vermont (Dec. 17). The decision to forgo the remainder of the season was made this week when Jordao's injury progressed. "This has been difficult for Beatriz, who has been a major contributor to our program in her first season and has a very bright future," head coach Jose Fernandez said. "She will take the time she needs to recover and allow the injury to heal and we will support her through this process. Losing Beatriz is another tough blow for our team, but we remain resilient and focused on our goals this season." The 6-foot-3 center from Portugal averaged 11.3 points and 5.7 rebounds through 12 games with the Bulls, and was named The American Freshman of the Week twice this season. She earned the honor once after posting a double-double in her debut in USF's win over Ohio State, and again when she scored a game-high 14 points in 17 minutes in USF's dominating win over George Washington. In her last contest against LSU, Jordao saw just nine minutes of action. USF has 10 healthy players for the remaining 16 American Athletic Conference games following the loss of Jordao and two-time honorable mention All-American Kitija Laksa. USF announced the addition of Luize Septe on Sunday, Dec. 30, 2018. The Bulls commence conference play on Saturday afternoon at Temple at 3 p.m.

  15. 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

  17. 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.

It's something I always wanted to do since I was little," said Williams of her flourishing WNBA career. "Sometimes it's still unbelievable to think about actually being here and playing a role on a team where I can impact it. It's an amazing feeling."Amazing is a good way to describe what Williams accomplished earlier this month.Facing the Washington Mystics on June 13, the highest WNBA Draft pick in USF history poured in a career-high 34 points to set the Sun's new franchise record for scoring in regulation."I think I just got it going," Williams said.

It was just one of those nights."Williams sank four three-pointers during her game for the ages and grabbed another franchise record with 15 total made field goals. Scoring 16 points in the third quarter, Williams also helped the Sun match another franchise record by erasing a 30-point deficit to take a lead, a feat that was originally accomplished back in 2010.

Perth head coach Andy Stewart called Williams the best player in the WNBL after she scored 41 points in a win over Adelaide last December."It was super cool out there in Australia. I was playing with some amazing people and had an amazing coach who believed in me whole heartedly," Williams said. "He kind of just let me do what I do. That definitely reminded me of the USF days."No matter where she is in the world, Williams said she still keeps close tabs on the Bulls and was proud to see the program make its fourth straight NCAA tournament appearance last season."I definitely watch and I still follow the Twitter page, so I keep up with the stats," she said. "When I can catch a game, I definitely catch a game." Williams still ranks second on the USF career scoring chart with 2,304 points from 2012-15 and helped the Bulls start a string of six straight 20-plus win seasons."I definitely take pride in going to USF," she said. "I like the culture and tradition that's steadily building and growing at that program. Coach [Jose Fernandez] is doing a great job."Continuing to represent USF well on the pro stage is important to Williams, who gets another opportunity to shine against the Washington Mystics on Tuesday night. The battle for first place in the Eastern Conference standings is set for a 7 p.m. start in Washington, D.C., and fans can watch the game online HERE."It's crazy, it's an amazing feeling playing on this team with our chemistry, our support for one another," said Williams of the 8-5 Sun.
