USF Bulls women's basketball team to open season without coach Jose Fernandez against Florida A&M

up next

USF women vs. Florida A&M

When/where: 7 tonight; Sun Dome, Tampa

Radio: 1010-AM

Notable: USF will play without coach Jose Fernandez, who has been away from the team since Monday with severe abdominal pain. Fernandez, 37, was admitted to a Tampa hospital Wednesday, and associate coach Jeff Osterman has stepped in as interim coach. The Bulls beat the Rattlers 78-59 in Tampa two years ago. USF will be without F Porche Grant, who was suspended two games for an unspecified violation of NCAA rules. The Bulls have eight newcomers, with junior college guards Leondra Doomes-Stephens and Sequoyah Griffin expected to play significant minutes on the wing. A planned ceremony to unveil a banner commemorating USF's WNIT title has been postponed until Fernandez rejoins the team.
