Some of you may remember my rant where I said USF would once again be the typical cellar dweller they had been since joining the Big East. Well, i apologize. They are a legit bubble team right now, and if they continue to win BE games they will be in the mix for the touney.
Dominque Jones is the real deal. He's a freaking joy to watch. I check the box scores for the Bulls, and they had been quietly impressing me (even beating a reeling Pitt team). i'd taken notice of 'Nique after his three game stretch prior to the GT game. Then yesterday when I bought Zards tix the guy offered me free GT-USF tix. I decided I wanted to see Nique in person, so I took a friend who's a GT fan so I could rib him all night about "My BULLS!"
It was a great game, and Jones is very impressive. His game reminds me a lot of D Wade. He got to the rack at well and finished. After the game, another friend that joined us sent me this quote from I don't know where
With 1:05 to play and his team leading by eight points and shooting free throws, Jones walked to the crowd and twice bellowed: "Y'all come watch Dominique Jones play!" He flexed his muscles at the final horn and told the local USF radio crew his "heart was beating too fast" to do a postgame interview.
So I apologize Bulls fans. Your team is legit. I'll gladly hop on the USF basketball BW if they make it come March (or whenever they play the Cuse).
