Toarlyn Fitzpatrick leads all scorers with 7 points as the USF Bulls lead the Cleveland State Vikings 25-21 after 20 minutes at the St. Pete Times Forum. Ron Anderson Jr. and Hugh Robertson have chipped in 6 points a piece for the Bulls.
The Bulls shot 35% from the field, but held Cleveland State to only 31% shooting. The Vikings offense stagnated in the halfcourt offense as the Bulls moved from the 1-3-1 to a 2-3 zone that CSU couldn't shoot out of. The Vikings were lead by Trevon Harmon and Tim Camczyc who each had 6 points while Anton Grady had 4 points off the bench for Cleveland State.
Jawanza Poland made his season debut for the Bulls, and was 0-1 from the field, but grabbed 2 rebounds in 10 minutes.
The Bulls have had their problems holding a halftime lead, and will need to do a good job breaking the CSU press if they want to keep their undefeated record at home tonight.
