Jose Fernandez’s group enters the new campaign coming off a nightmarish 2018-19 season where they were ravaged by injuries. Despite the loss of so many key contributors early on, the Bulls still managed to fight their way to the AAC Tournament semifinal and the second round of the WNIT.
One of those players who emerged for USF last season was junior Enna Pehadzic, who was named Second-Team All-AAC in Philly. The wing from Denmark led the team in scoring last year by averaging 12.1 points per game.
