USF Vs. Florida Southern: Bulls Take Care Of Mocs With 73-43 Win

The USF Bulls (3-0) dominated from start to finish as they beat the Florida Southern Mocs (0-1) 73-43 tonight at the Lakeland Center. Augustus Gilchrist lead a balanced USF scoring attack with 15 points, while Blake Nash and Toarlyn Fitzpatrick provided some quality production off the bench with 13 and 12 points respectively.

USF was clearly the superior team tonight, and it showed from opening tip. USF rushed out to a quick 14-4 lead, and the Bulls never let the Mocs in the game. FSC was clearly bothered by USF’s size advantage, and only shot 26% on the night. The Mocs were even worse from behind the arc, making only 1 of 20 attempts from 3.

The Bulls were able to get high quality shots most of the night, and were able to connect on 48% of them. The Bulls were even better from 3 where they shot 50% from downtown. USF also had a clear advantage on the glass, outrebounding FSC 53-35. Ron Anderson Jr. led way on the boards with 11 rebounds.

The Bulls will now head up to Uncasville, Connecticut to play the final two games of the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame Tip-ff this weekend. The first game will be against Old Dominion on Saturday at 2:00 PM.
