Lovett will be back
Continuing an effort to make this the Blog of Official Record when it comes to all things walk-on, I have news on basketball fan favorite Eddie Lovett: he'll be back next season. Lovett has been listed as a senior all season, but the pregame release for USF's game Sunday at No. 10 Pittsburgh notes that while Lovett is due to graduate this spring, he has decided to pursue a second major, allowing him another year of eligibility. So call him junior walk-on Eddie Lovett. He had career highs of 27 minutes and seven points in the win against Bethune-Cookman, and followed with eight minutes and two of USF's 10 assists in the loss to Connecticut.
Oh, and I've talked to Mike Ford. I'll have an update later today. Completely forgot about it in last night's post. Must be the jetlag. Stay tuned.
