The USF Bulls and the VCU Rams head into halftime tied at 28 points in Richmond, VA. Ron Anderson Jr. and Victor Rudd each have 9 points to lead the Bulls while Darius Theus has 9 points to lead Virginia Commonwealth.
One of the big things USF were worried about today was how freshman Anthony Collins would handle the high-pressure full court press that Shaka Smart likes to use. While Collins had 4 assists in the first half, Anthony did have 3 costly turnovers in the first 20 minutes.
The Rams have lived on the perimeter for most of the season, but the Bulls have done an excellent job defending around the arc, limiting the Rams to only 2-10 from behind the arc. The Bulls themselves have shot efficiently from three, going 3-7 in the first half.
There were only 9 total fouls committed in the first half, and Collins was the only player to commit two fouls in the first half.
