Doomes' Day: Senior leads upset of No. 17 Hoyas



TAMPA -- Now that is how you do Senior Night.

Leondra Doomes-Stephens, playing in her final college home game, led USF with a career-best 25 points and 13 rebounds to guide the Bulls to a 58-55 upset of No. 17 Georgetown in the Sun Dome on Monday night.

"I had a lot of confidence today, and my team played hard with me," said Doomes-Stephens, who added four assists and zero turnovers. "Every time I shot the ball, I always thought it was going in."

Doomes-Stephens, who went 8-for-11 from the field, had her first double-double, and she and fellow guard Andrea Smith (24 points) were the only Bulls to score in the final 13 minutes. Smith was clutch down the stretch, scoring eight of USF's final nine points, including four free throws in the final 1:06.

USF (13-18, 3-13 in Big East) had opened Big East play with a 1-13 record, but has now finished the regular season with back-to-back wins. The last time the Bulls beat an opponent ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 was against DePaul on Feb. 5, 2008.

The Bulls will have the 13th seed in the Big East tournament, opening play Friday against 12th-seeded Pittsburgh.
