Heath's first practice open to public next week

5

October

You'd think the night before an expected sellout and early kickoff against Central Florida, USF would want to piggyback off the frenzied following for Bulls football with a Midnight Madness kind of event, but it'll be a more low-key opening to the Stan Heath era, with the men's basketball team's first practice simply open to the public from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. next Friday night.

"We anxiously look forward to the start of practice," Heath said in a statement. "We have made strides in our preseason with skill development and strength gains. With several new players adapting to high-level basketball and the implementation of a fast-tempo approach, we realize the work in front of our team. We expect intense and high-energy practices each time we take the court."

USF opens its season with a home exhibition against Saint Leo at 7 p.m. on Oct. 31, with the regular-season opener at home Nov. 9 against Cleveland State. And don't get us started on "anxious" vs. "eager."
