NOTES ON USF
• In addition to this season, the Bulls took part in the 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008 WNIT advancing to the third round during the ‘07 event ... After receiving a first-round bye, the Bulls defeated Coppin State, 66-49, in the first round on March 19 before ending its season at Virginia with a 73-71 loss on March 22 ... Last season, USF travelled to Florida Gulf Coast University where the Eagles ended the Bulls’ season with a 67-65 loss on March 21 ... USF is 2-5 all-time in postseason tournaments with a 2-0 record at home, an 0-4 slate on the road and an 0-1 record on a neutral court ... The Bulls are 2-4 all-time in the WNIT with all four losses coming on the road.
• The Bulls are the first basketball team in school history - male or female - to advance to six straight postseason appearances ... During the 2006-07 season, USF surpassed the men’s team’s who advanced to three consecutive tournaments during the 1989-90 (NCAA), 1990-91 (NIT) and 1991-92 (NCAA) campaigns.
• USF made school history during the 2005-06 season earning an at-large bid to its first ever NCAA Tournament ... The Bulls would earn a No. 9 seed in the Bridgeport Region and faced No. 8 seed USC in the first round in Norfolk, VA ... USF dropped the decision - in what many people called the best first round game of the tournament - 67-65.
