Freshman Herget leads Bulls in NCAA push

USF's final Big East series of the regular season opens Thursday night against Rutgers, and Wednesday's Times has a feature on freshman phenom Jimmy Herget, who is embracing his role as USF's No. 1 starter and is sporting the Big East's lowest ERA.

The former Jefferson standout talks about the Bulls' NCAA hopes, how strongly he considered accepting a contract to play pro baseball last summer and his progress under first-year pitching coach Lance Carter.

It's certainly too close to call, but still has USF in the NCAA field as one of the final two at-large berths, but the Bulls likely need a strong finish, both against Rutgers and next week in the Big East tournament in Clearwater to be confident of making the cut.
