Allen Jr. Shines in Losing Effort at Detroit

The month of December has not been kind to USF so far as the Bulls were defeated by Detroit for the second year in a row on Saturday afternoon.

Despite another impressive performance from reigning AAC Player of the Week Corey Allen Jr., USF (5-3) dropped their second consecutive game, losing a 67-57 contest to Detroit (6-3) on Saturday afternoon.

Allen Jr.’s aggressive nature on offense has certainly been enhanced by Coach Antigua’s up tempo style as the Bulls continue their slate of non-conference games. The senior guard has averaged 20.6 points and a 61.5 field goal percentage for USF over the past five games. Saturday’s matchup at Detroit yielded similar results for Allen Jr., as he racked up 26 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists against the Titans.

Even with Allen Jr.’s stellar play, Detroit was able to maintain control for the majority of the game and handed the young Bulls their third defeat of the season. The Titans were led in this contest by Juwan Howard Jr. The son of the longtime NBA veteran and Fab 5 star of the same name contributed 16 points, 3 rebounds, and 2 assists throughout the game. Meanwhile, guard Anton Wilson went 5-7 from beyond the arc, adding fifteen points to the winning effort. The Titans finished the game shooting 47% from the field, the highest percentage compiled against a USF team only allowing an AAC best 37.7% on defense.

Coming off two consecutive road losses, The Bulls will look to get back into the win column on December 15th when they host Georgia Southern on ESPN3.
