The tournament is here, folks. USF's excellent showing in the conference tournament has earned them a 6th seed and a No. 25 ranking. No USF team has ever been in a better position to make an NCAA Tournament run, and you can expect them to take advantage of it tonight on their home court.
Upperclassmen Courtney Williams, Alisia Jenkins and Tamara Taylor lead the squad, which features great shooters in freshmen Laura Ferreira and Maria Jespersen. Williams's average is up to 20+ points per game, and Alisia Jenkins averages a double-double per game, with 13 points and 12 rebounds. She has 23 double-doubles so far this season.
USF Women's Basketball has only one NCAA Tournament win in its history. This is the second week the Bulls have ever been ranked, and it is the highest NCAA seed they have ever received. The team that wins tonight and again on Monday night will find itself in the Sweet Sixteen. With the home court advantage, the stars have aligned for USF to make a run. Follow along as USF shows a national audience that they belong in March basketball.
