Greetings folks… Couple of updates.

The South Florida men’s basketball team dropped its third straight road game tonight in a 71-63 loss to Central Florida in Orlando. Despite sophomore Dominic Jones’ 31 points scored (tie for career high), and a 28-26 lead at halftime, the Bulls only shot 53 percent from the free-throw line. Efficiency from the free throw line has been something that has hurt this team all season.

UCF shot 44 percent from the field and had a 30 point effort from senior guard Jermaine Taylor.

USF shot only 41.5 percent and turned the ball 21 times in the loss.

Also, it has been made official (suprise suprise) that USF will play in the MagicJack St. Petersburg bowl played at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida. We all knew it was coming, yet it just had to be made “official.”

It should be a great draw for fans and the bowl itself. You’d think the Bulls would bring a lot of fan base. USF will know for sure its opponent on Sunday, but most likely it will be Memphis (6-6) from Conference USA.

The St. Petersburg bowl is played on Dec. 20, at 4:30 p.m. For more information head to stpetersburgbowl.com
