The USF Bulls used a balanced scoring attack to take a 22-17 lead over the 19th ranked Louisville Cardinals tonight at the KFC Yum! Center. Seven Bulls have scored already for Stan Heath's squad, with Ron Anderson Jr., Anthony Collins, and Jawanza Poland leading the way with 4 points. Hugh Robertson and Blake Nash have each chipped in 3 points while Anderson Jr. and Toarlyn Fitzpatrick lead the Bulls with 4 rebounds a piece. Kyle Kuric leads all scorers with 7 points while Peyton Siva has 4 points for the Cardinals.
The Bulls have controlled the tempo from the tip, keeping things from the transition game that Louisville wants to run. The Bulls are also leading on the glass, taking an 18-14 rebounding advantage at the half.
USF will need to do a better job controlling the ball, already turning the ball over 9 times. Louisville however have been just as careless, turning it over 8 times themselves in the first 20 minutes.
Not a lot of foul trouble on either side, with Gorgui Dieng as the only player with 2 fouls.
