Women's Basketball drops season-opener to USF, 64-57

TAMPA, Fla. — The 15th-ranked University of Texas Women's Basketball team lost its season-opening game on Friday night, as USF sank eight free throws in the last 20 seconds to take a 64-57 victory.

The Longhorns trailed for most of the game, but Texas mounted a fourth-quarter rally to go ahead by three with 5:45 remaining. But the Bulls closed the contest on a 15-5 run. Free throw shooting decided the game, as Texas held USF without a field goal for the last 3:54, and the Bulls allowed the last UT points from the floor at 4:18.
