Since losing 3-2 in penalty kicks to Notre Dame in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament last Sunday, the Bulls have been patiently waiting to see where they will be placed in the NCAA tournament, which starts Nov. 20. 

Bids for the tournament will be announced on Monday at 5:30 on ESPN News after things shake out with conference tourmanents, which end this weekend.

Despite Sunday’s loss to the Irish, the Bulls (13-3-3) are still in the top 10 of four of the five major college soccer polls. 

Attinella gets big honor: USF junior goalkeeper Jeff Attinella was named the Big East conference’s goalkeeper of the year as well as a first-team all-conference selection.  In 19 games this year, Attinella had seven shutouts and allowed just 15 goals.
