The “entire” Lighthall [Jim Lighthall] family was in attendance when USF traveled to square off against MAC opponent Bowling Green last week. Coach Heath had over 10 people in attendance for the matchup, including several former players from his days under Tom Izzo at Michigan State. Detroit natives Bo Zeigler & JaVontae Hawkins also had folks down from MI. Transfer G Corey Allen put on a clinic going 7/11 from the field, 2/3 from downtown & 3/3 from the line. Allen is scorching the field & lighting it up on both ends of the floor. The Anthony ‘AC’ Collins & Corey ‘CA’ Allen combination will likely be coined as the Bulls new one-two punch.
I’m truly excited to follow USF Basketball this season. The added depth of big men C John Egbunu & C/F Chris Perry down low paired with the play making ability of guys like Victor Rudd, Anthony Collins, Zach LeDay & JaVontae Hawkins will allow the Bulls to employ a ‘run and gun’ style of play. Fans will be surprised by the drastic change in style & pace of play from last season. The Bulls will have great success this season & in my opinion are a NCAA Tournament team.
