Three USF players scored in double figures, while two others rebounded in double figures, as the No. 22 Bulls (2-0) rolled past Albany 74-37 in their home debut Friday before an announced Yuengling Center crowd of 2,269.

Senior wing Laura Ferreira led all scorers with 21 points, finishing three shy of her career high. Six-foot-1 junior Alyssa Rader and 6-1 junior Tamara Henshaw collected 12 and 11 boards, respectively. No Bull played more than 31 minutes as 10 different players scored.

"We've got a lot of talent on this team, and some guys are not gonna play the minutes they have in the past," Coach Jose Fernandez said on USF's official radio broadcast. "We've got a lot more weapons."

USF finished with a 52-29 rebounding advantage. Rader has collected 12 boards in both her team's games.

"She just assaults the glass on both ends of the floor," Fernandez said.
