Bulls "rebound" from loss

After suffering a disheartening 58-53 loss to Western Michigan on Sunday, the Bulls crashed the boards hard on Tuesday en route to a 82-63 against Bradley at the Sun Dome.

"Coach (Stan Heath) was harping on us in practice about how we got outrebounded (Sunday). We had to get back to beating team on the glass," said Bulls senior forward Toarlyn Fitzpatrick, who had 16 points on Tuesday. "Everybody had rebounding on the brain, so we were trying to crash, myself included."

USF outrebounded Bradley 42-32, much to Heath's delight. Senior Victor Rudd had a double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds.

"I was really pleased with him. He has not been playing well at all," Heath said of Rudd, adding he would like to see Rudd drive to the basket more and develop and midrange game. "He's been so reliant on shooting that 3-point shot."

Point guard Anthony Collins also had a solid game, scoring eight points and dishing out ten assists.

The Bulls led by as many as 34 late in the second half.

"Nothing worse than a loss before a holiday," Heath said. "We played well. We certainly played, for 30 minutes, our best game, and we caught Bradley in a little bit of an off-night."

USF returns from the holiday weekend to play Monday at Stetson for its first road game of the season.
