Mustangs sprint past USF in regular season finale

This entry was posted in News on by .

TAMPA ‘ For the first time in more than a half-decade, USF found itself playing a regular season finale with real significance. Which explains why defeat had a real sting to it.

Original media available. For all the info.

In one of their most sluggish efforts of the season, the Bulls (19-12, 8-10 AAC) struggled against SMU’s 2-3 zone and watched the Mustangs (14-16, 6-12) flourish in transition in a 77-71 loss before a senior day audience of 3,548.

‘I’m a competitive guy,’ second-year Bulls coach Brian Gregory said. ‘I’m ticked off right now because we didn’t perform well, and we have all year long.’

The loss relegated the Bulls, who were seeking only the fifth 20-win season in program history, to the No. 8 seed in this week’s American Athletic Conference tournament in Memphis. USF, which has dropped six of its last seven league games, opens against No. 9 Connecticut at 1 p.m. Thursday.

Many things are taking place:

The biggest workout warrior on every Way-Too-Early Top 25 football team

To earn a spot in Mark Schlabach’s 2017 Way-Too-Early Top 25, your team needs a load of on-field stars. But each of those teams also has an off-field superstar, the one who awes even his strongest, fastest teammates during workouts.

Granted, his passing needs to come a long way and he’s not all that tall, but Jalen Hurts is as physically stout a quarterback as you’ll find. The rising sophomore grew up in the weight room and once squatted 500 pounds in high school. Combine that with sub-4.5-second speed in the 40-yard dash and you’re looking at a scout’s dream. — Alex Scarborough
