Bulls should boast more bodies Sunday
For the first time in nearly four weeks, USF's men could have eight available scholarship players for Sunday's game at Temple.
The school confirmed Saturday F Bo Zeigler and PF Luis Santos, who missed all or part of last Sunday's 92-58 home loss to SMU, are healthy and expected to play against the Owls. Additionally, junior PF Chris Perry, suspended the past five games for an unspecified violation, made the trip to Philadelphia and could play.
USF (5-20, 2-10 American Athletic Conference) has had no more than seven scholarship players in its last five contests.
Against SMU, Coach Orlando Antigua found himself down to five scholarship guys when Zeigler injured his left knee on a collision. Just before the game, the team announced Santos wouldn't suit up due to an undisclosed ailment. As a result, three walk-ons were used including G Jake Bodway, who played a career-high 26 minutes.
A loss Sunday against Temple (15-8, 9-3) would give USF its worst record ever through 26 games.
