|Stetson University men’s basketball coach Casey Alexander announced today that the Hatters will play host to the USF Bulls at the Edmunds Center during the 2012-13 season.
The game against South Florida is scheduled for Monday, November 26, immediately following the Thanksgiving holiday.
“What a great opportunity for Hatter fans,” Alexander said. “We're excited about having a Big East opponent in the Edmunds Center and appreciate USF working with us to get this game scheduled.”
The Bulls are coming off an appearance in the NCAA Tournament in March where they advanced to the Sweet 16 round of the tournament.
“Stan Heath does a great job with his team as we saw last year with their Sweet 16 run,” Alexander said.
Heath just completed his fifth season at USF, compiling a 22-14 record in 2011-12 that included a 12-6 mark in the rugged Big East.
The game between the Hatters and Bulls will be the first since the 2006-07 season and the first in DeLand since the 2005-06 campaign. Stetson will return the game in Tampa during the 2013-14 season.
