Highly touted freshman guard Caleb Murphy received Freshman of the Week conference honors for his performance against Wichita State last week. The former top 100 player coming out of high school scored 14 points, six assists, and collected three rebounds in an overtime loss to Wichita State.

In one of his best performances in his young career at USF, Murphy was effective at producing some big-time offensive plays in the first half as the Bulls powered to a 13-point advantage over Wichita State during the first 20 minutes of play. He will look to lead a bounce back performance for the Bulls as USF travels to Memphis on December 29th.

Syd The Kid Keeps Balling

Returning back into her weekly accolades, USF women’s basketball guard Sydni Harvey put on a show against Cincinnati to keep the Bulls undefeated in conference play, and earned herself a spot on the weekly honor roll.

Harvey was responsible for a season-high 21 points, thanks to 5-of-11 shooting beyond the three-point line to go along with her two rebounds as USF moved past Cincinnati 73-61. Harvey and company will look to continue their momentum as they travel to Tulsa on December 30th.
