“I think we are showing signs of getting better and improving in some areas,” said USF coach Orlando Antigua. “Those kids are down, but they battled a little bit. We still haven’t put a complete game together. One where we take care of the ball, rebound the way we are capable of rebounding like we showed tonight, make our free throws and share the ball.”

The Bulls (0-3) had an big edge in rebounds, 49-37, including 11 more offensive rebounds than the Colonials (3-0). Leading the rebounding effort was senior center Jaleel Cousins with 11, a new career high.

“We challenged them on that. It’s the first time that we’ve played a team with similar size,” Antigua said. “I thought our bigs did a good job on their two big guys.”

USF plays Boston University Saturday.
