USF’s Dominique Jones Goes Beast-Mode

South Florida is a school we haven’t really talked about, nor is it one that we will focus a lot of time on in the future. They are currently 12-7 and 12th in the 16-team Big East. They haven’t made an NCAA Tournament appearance since 1992, when they were an 11-seed and fell to Georgetown.

However, today, we show USF some love. Saturday, Bulls’ guard Dominique Jones — or DoJo, as I call him — went absolute beast-mode against Providence. DoJo went 15-23 from the field, and 14-18 from the stripe and finished the game with 46 points.


The output set a school record, and was the second-highest regular season total in Big East history.

To go along with those 46 (!) points, Jones also grabbed 10 boards and dished out 8 assists. Not only did Jones put up a near-triple-double, but he led the Bulls to an impressive comeback against the Friars. The Bulls trailed by 12 with just over 2 minutes left in regulation, and by 5 with 11 seconds left.

Jones then cut the lead to 3 before USF stole the ball and Jones dished it out to Toarlyn Fitzpatrick who forced OT with a three-pointer with .2 seconds left.

Jones finished off the comeback by scoring 9 of the team’s 11 overtime points, and the Bulls left Rhode Island with a 109-105 victory.

So congratulations to DoJo and the Bulls, you guys finally get some Beadlemaniac love.
