Jespersen explodes for career-high; Bulls smash Bearcats

Maria Jespersen played on another level tonight to lead South Florida past the visiting Cincinnati Bearcats. The Bulls were able to lockdown Cincinnati as the Bearcats could not score more than 13 points in each of the quarters.

Tampa, FL -- The South Florida Bulls improved to 7-1 in the American Athletic Conference tonight at the Sun Dome with a 72-52 win over Cincinnati.

Behind junior forward Maria Jespersen’s career-high 26 points, 12 rebounds, and 2 assists, the Bulls were able to easily stampede past the Bearcats. Cincinnati, however, has surpassed expectations so far this season, going in projected to finish 10th in the conference yet currently being tied for fourth with Tulane.
