Heath gets homecoming in 2014 game at Detroit
USF men's basketball coach Stan Heath will return to his hometown of Detroit in 2014, as the Bulls have signed a two-game series with the University of Detroit, bringing the Titans to Tampa this upcoming season and letting Heath come home in 2014-15.
Heath, a Detroit native who went to high school there and played collegiately at Eastern Michigan, will have a personal homecoming, as will incoming Bulls freshman guard Byron "Bo" Zeigler (of Detroit Community School) and rising USF sophomore guard JaVontae Hawkins, who is from an hour away in Flint.
The Titans are a solid addition to USF's 2013-14 nonconference schedule, having gone 20-13 this season and 12-4 in the Horizon, losing in the opening round of the NIT. Rising senior Ray McCallum Jr., son of Detroit's head coach, is a strong player, having averaged 18.7 points per game this past season. The Titans nearly upset Syracuse, losing 72-68 in the Carrier Dome, and lost by only three points at St. John's.
