[ By Joey Knight: TAMPA ―At this stage of USF’s development, style points aren’t a lofty priority. To its long-suffering fan base, even the ugly wins are exquisite. Which brings us to Tuesday night’s 54-41 victory against Wichita State, arguably the Bulls' most gratifying eyesore to date. On their worst shooting night of the season, the Bulls rendered the rebuilding Shockers absolutely frigid from the floor (28.3 percent) to snap a three-game skid before an announced crowd of 3,153. USF (13-6, 3-4) has won 13 games for the first time since 2012, when it reached the NCAA Tournament. ]
