The Bulls' second-leading scorer from last season makes his debut for 6-5 South Florida on Monday night when it hosts Cleveland State (10-1).

The South Florida Bulls (6-5) host the Cleveland State Vikings (10-1) on Monday night at the St. Pete Times Forum, with tipoff set for 7 PM on Bright House Sports Network.

The Bulls have lost three of their last four games, most recently a 52-40 defeat against the Auburn Tigers last Wednesday. USF shot just 33.3 percent from the field, with senior forward Augustus Gilchrist leading the way with 10 points. South Florida averages 61.4 points per game, among the worst figures in the NCAA.

Perhaps the Bulls' fortunes will change with the return of Jawanza Poland, the junior guard who has missed USF's entire season to date due to a back injury and a two-game suspension. Poland ranked No. 2 on the Bulls in scoring in 2010/11, averaging 9.1 points per game.

Cleveland State, meanwhile, leads the Horizon League and has won each of its last five games. In their last outing, the Vikings knocked off the Akron Zips, 69-66. Senior guard Trevon Harmon shot 4-of-6 from three-point range and led Cleveland St. with 16 points.
