The South Florida Bulls women’s basketball team earned the no. 8 seed in the Greensville 1 regional of the 2023 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament where they’ll face No. 9 Marquette on Friday.
The winner will get to face the winner of No. 1 seed South Carolina vs. No. 16 Norfolk State. The Golden Eagles finished 21-10 (13-7 Big East).
The Bulls (26-6, 15-1 AAC) won The American regular season title with ease, but was bounced in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament last week by Wichita State. Thanks to a strong non-conference slate that saw the Bulls beat Alabama, Texas, and Arkansas, their participation in the tournament was never in doubt.
The Bulls are making their ninth NCAA Tournament appearance in program history, and 8th in the last 10 years.
USF is 4-17 all-time against Marquette.
Led by AAC Co-Players of the Year in Elena Tsineke, and Dulcy Fankam Mendjiadeu, the Bulls will look to finally break through, and make it to the second weekend of the tournament for the first time in program history.
