Bulls to Battle Colorado State in NCAA First Round

 

LOS ANGELES, CALIF. - MARCH 18, 2016  For the second straight season, and the third time in four years, the University of South Florida women’s basketball team is prepared to take part in an NCAA Tournament opening-round game. 

 

The Bulls (23-9), seeded No. 6 in the Bridgeport Region and American Athletic Conference runners-up, meet No. 11 seed Colorado State (33-1), winners of the Mountain West Conference, Saturday in Los Angeles, Calif. The game will be the first of two first-round contests to be played at the historic Pauley Pavilion Saturday and is slated to tip off at 9 p.m. Eastern Time (TV: ESPN2). Saturday will mark the first match-up between two ranked opponents in the first round since 2012.

 

USF plays in the second contest of the evening, following the No. 3 UCLA and No. 14 Hawaii match-up, which is slated to tip off at 6:30 p.m. (ET) and both games will air on ESPN2. Pauley Pavilion is regarded as one of the finest collegiate facilities in the nation, housing the great John Wooden and his legacy. 

 

USF head coach Jose Fernandez has his squad focused solely on the Rams, one of only five teams in Division I with two or fewer losses this season. 

 

“You don't win 31 games if you're not a good basketball team,” noted Fernandez. “They're very, very good and very well coached. They're deliberate on what they do offensively. They've got four guys on the floor that can shoot the three and they all can put it down on the floor.”

 

The Bulls are 2-1 in NCAA Tournament opening-round games and are looking to make their first trip to the Regional. The current roster includes a core group of upperclassmen who have seen firsthand how challenging the NCAA Tournament is. The senior class of five will end their careers as the most successful class to graduate from USF. The quintet has made four postseason runs, including three trips to the NCAA tournament and have turned in four 20-win seasons. 

 

The winner of Saturday’s meeting advances to the round of 32 to meet the winner of No. 3 UCLA and No. 14 Hawaii in the second round on Monday night. Game time has yet to be announced.

We really got screwed in the bracket this year, Our first game is against a 1 loss team(a Conference Champion). Filled with International players like our team. Will be a difficult task but think we pull out the win if we play our game.(we  played a more difficult schedule this year, however anyone who only loses one game cant be taken lightly).  The second game if it goes according to the seeding's will also be difficult. Good team in their Bld. ( I picked us to win this game as well in my bracket). I also picked us going all the way until we meet UConn for the right to advance to the Final 4. 

 

Lets Go Ladies and cant wait to watch you represent. 

Go Bulls

Tough match up. Won't be surprised if we lose this one. Been a good season.

No team is unbeatable in our bracket (except for UCONN). The ladies will still have to play hard and to their strengths.  If we get through our first three games I will be extremely happy.  We could, should everything play out in our favor, possibly even beat UCONN (although unlikely).  I'm very proud with the way the ladies have played this year and am happy to be a fan of the Lady Bulls.
