USF Women’s Basketball in the Dance

The University of South Florida is participating in March Madness, as the women’s team was named to the NCAA tournament, though their spot in the tournament is not without controversy.

The Lady Bulls earned their spot in the women’s basketball tournament after a 24-8 season that saw them make it to the American Athletic Conference’s final, where they would lose to the number one team in the country, the undefeated University of Connecticut. This was their fifth straight 20 win season, and eighth overall, all under head coach Jose Fernandez.
