After a disjointed first quarter, the USF women’s basketball team used a 19-4 run in the second quarter to help blow out the Stetson Hatters 85-43 on Sunday afternoon inside the Yuengling Center.
The Bulls were just 2-for-15 from the field in the first quarter, but turned it around quickly in the second period to take a 41-23 lead into the half. Elena Tsineke drilled back-to-back three’s in the second quarter to take a 18-15 lead that the Bulls would never give up again.
Tsineke led all scorers with 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting, including four three’s. Double-double machine Beth Mununga scored 10 points, and grabbed 11 boards for her double-double of the year, and ninth of her USF career.
Senior center Shae Leverett scored 12 points, and had four rebounds as well. USF hauled in 69 rebounds, 28 of which were offensive rebounds.
After over a week off after the upset over No. 6 Mississippi State, it was good to see the Bulls take control, and knock of the rust from the first quarter to take care of business.
USF (3-1) will travel to Memphis on Wednesday to open AAC play. The game is set for 3 p.m. on ESPN+.
