The South Florida Bulls men’s basketball team will limp into the AAC Tournament on Thursday losers of their last four games, and six of seven since returning from the 32 day COVID break. They’ll face Temple at noon on ESPNU.

Look, it’s tough to take a 32 day break in the middle of the season, not practice, play, or do anything and expect to be better on the other side of things. It’s a brutal season, and we all need to realize that.
If you wanted to watch the game to potentially see off Alexis Yetna, Justin Brown, and David Collins, then go for it. But, don’t expect a pretty game. Know what you’re getting yourself into.
Yetna, and freshman Caleb Murphy—who was named to the AAC freshman team on Wednesday—are questionable to play due to injury.
If the Bulls win, they’ll face top-seeded Wichita State at noon on Friday on ESPN2.
