Tough Big East draw for USF men's basketball



The Big East unveiled its "mirror" opponents that men's basketball teams will face both home and away during the 2012-13 season, and it's a doozy for USF, with Louisville, Connecticut, Villanova and Marquette all playing the Bulls twice.

That daunting challenge is what USF gets for tying for fourth in the Big East standings -- the Bulls could easily be a better team this upcoming season and have difficulty matching their 12-6 conference record from the 2011-12 season.

The tough mirror opponents give the Bulls an impressive home schedule for the Sun Dome in conference play: Connecticut, DePaul, Georgetown, Louisville, Marquette, Notre Dame, Providence, Syracuse and Villanova.
