USF Vs. St. John's: Bulls Battle Red Storm

Fresh off its upset of No. 24 Seton Hall, USF (10-8, 3-2 Big East) takes on St. John's (8-9, 2-4) looking for its fourth win in five games.

The USF Bulls (10-8, 3-2 Big East) take on the struggling St. John's Red Storm on Wednesday at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Most recently, the Bulls scored their biggest win of the season when they defeated the No. 24 Seton Hall Pirates, 56-55, on a game-winning shot by Toarlyn Fitzpatrick. Ron Anderson Jr. led USF with 14 points and was the only Bull to score in double-figures. Jordan Theodore tallied 16 points, three rebounds, five assists, and five steals for Seton Hall.

In their last outing, the Red Storm fell to the No. 9 Georgetown Hoyas, 69-49. Only seven Red Storm players saw action. Freshman swingman Maurice Harkless had a 21-point, 10-rebound double-double and shot 9-of-16 from the field, but his teammates combined for just 28 points on 6-of-38 (15.8 percent) shooting.

St. John's owns a commanding 7-1 lead in the all-time series between the teams, including a 72-56 victory in the most recent matchup.
