USF Athletics Roundup: Welcome To November Edition

New month, not as much winning. And hello basketball!

GoUSFBulls.com

There’s no need to discuss USF Football’s blowout loss to Tulane any further, so check out what you missed elsewhere during a busy weekend in Bulls’ athletics.

No. 16 Women’s Soccer (14-3, 8-1 AAC)

Following a 2-0 win over East Carolina in the AAC Tournament semifinals, No. 1 seed USF’s run came to a disappointing end in the conference championship game, falling 3-0 to Memphis on Sunday at Corbett Stadium.

The loss snapped USF’s eight-game win streak, and 15-game home win streak.

Junior striker Evelyne Viens, redshirt junior Kelli Burney and junior Aubrey Megrath were all named to The American Championship All-Tournament team.

With a 14-3 overall record, and a regular season conference title, the Bulls are in no danger of missing the NCAA tournament and will still most likely host the first round. The tournament bracket will be released on NCAA.com Monday at 4:30 p.m.

Men’s Soccer (7-7-2, 4-1-2 AAC)

The Bulls finished off the regular season slate Friday afternoon, shutting out Memphis 2-0 behind goals from Emilio Ycaza and Felipe Baptista.

Ycaza, a sophomore midfielder, was named The American Rookie of the Week on Monday.

USF will enter the AAC Tournament in Orlando as the No. 3 seed and take on Memphis in a rematch on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.

Volleyball (18-8, 7-6 AAC)

Following a four-set victory (22-25, 25-13, 25-20, 25-21) at Temple on Thursday night, the Bulls four-match win streak came to an end on Saturday at UConn in four-sets (5-25, 25-16, 23-25, 23-25)

Freshman setter Lauren LaBeck was impressive again, finishing with 29 assists, five kills and five digs.

USF returns home to The Corral to wrap-up the regular season on Friday night hosting ECU and Sunday afternoon against Cincinnati for Senior Day.

Notables:

  • Prior to the season opener against Alabama A&M on Tuesday night at the Yuengling Center, men’s basketball hosted a media session and open practice Monday.
  • No. 22 women’s basketball heads to Ohio State on Tuesday night to open up the regular season. You can listen to the game on 1040 AM
