TAMPA (March 1, 2021) – The No. 15-ranked University of South Florida women's basketball team returns to the Yuengling Center on Tuesday night for the first of back-to-back games to close out the regular season against UCF in the War on I-4 series. Tip-off in the Yuengling Center is slated for 5:30 p.m. (ESPN+). The two teams will also meet on Thursday at 5 p.m., in Orlando, at Addition Financial Arena in front of a nationally televised audience on ESPNU.

Before the game, the Bulls will honor their two senior's Shae Leverett and Bethy Mununga in a pregame ceremony.
 
The Bulls (14-2, 12-1* American Athletic Conference) look to recover from their first conference loss of the season on Feb. 27 at Houston. The setback also ended their program-record 13-game winning streak.
 
That can all be a distant memory as USF can win the American Athletic Conference regular-season title, and the No. 1 seed in the upcoming conference tournament, with at least a split of the final two games. UCF must win both games to get the top seed and the regular-season crown.
 
Subscriptions for the ESPN+ app are $5.99 monthly or $49.99 annually and can be packaged with Hulu and Disney+ streaming services. A step-by-step guide for subscribing to ESPN+ is located here.

Come on ladies!  You have the opportunity to do something that’s rarely done at USF.  Winning an outright conference championship against the CC in Oviedo.  Show the other programs how it’s done!

I DON'T LIKE UCF!

I hope the Houston game was a wake-up call. It was a "burn the tape" performance. Flat, uninspired, and sloppy. Today's game will reveal the character of this year's squad. I expect them to bounce back in a big way and win this one by 8 to 12 points.
