Tampa, FL - Stan Heath understands the challenge of
transforming South Florida into a contender in one of the toughest
college basketball leagues in the country.
The former Arkansas and Kent State coach concedes it will be
difficult to replace Big East scoring leader Dominique Jones,
however Heath and his young team still have expectations of taking
another step forward this season.
USF went 20-13 last winter, earning a postseason berth for the
first time in eight years. More importantly, the Bulls climbed to
the middle of the pack in the Big East standings with a 9-9 record
that was easily its best since entering the league in 2005.
