From The Oracle ...

USF women’s basketball is five official practices deep in the 2020-21 season and, for the most part, it’s been smooth sailing.

The Bulls are actually ahead of schedule, coach Jose Fernandez said.

USF began official practice late last week after being limited to individual and team workouts in late June. 

“Before these five practices, we had 17 team workouts that consisted somewhere between an hour and a half and two hours,” he said Tuesday. “Before that, we had position workouts for at least a month, month and a half.

“We’re definitely ahead of schedule [more] than we’ve ever been in the past.”

Getting his players back in the country was a significant concern for Fernandez in the summer, as the majority of his team is made up of international players.

Of the 14 active players on the roster, 10 of them are from Europe.

Now, every player is back at USF and no one has opted out of the season, per Fernandez.

“Everyone’s present and accounted for, and it was great we got them here early as well,” he said. “We had a couple of kids have to quarantine when they arrived here for those 14 days and they missed some position work there that last week of August and first week in September. 

“But everybody’s here I feel really good about this team.”

Being handed an early advantage with the return of the team’s international players is pivotal, especially considering the impact they had last season.
