#129 San Francisco Dons

2003-04: 17-14, 7-7, 4th

WCC

 

By Joel Welser

 

 

Jesse Evans took over the head spot of the Dons in April.  Evans had seven successful years at Louisiana-Lafayette, turning that program into a Sun Belt powerhouse.  It’ll take time for the full-court, up-tempo game that Evans likes to play to become effective in San Francisco.  The Dons will gladly take that in exchange for a fresh start and new sense of optimism. 

 

Who’s Out: Starters James Bayless and Alvin Broussard have both graduated.  Bayless led the Dons with 12.4 points per game.  USF returns the rest of their squad which is full of players waiting to step up to the starting lineup.

 

Who’s In: Center Jason Carter, a transfer from Colorado, has sat out his year and will see some quality minutes under the basket.  German guard Felix Czerny and Juco forward Johnny Dukes round out the Dons recruiting class.

 

Who to Watch: Tyrone Riley scored over 11 points and led the team with 7.2 rebounds per game last year.  He’ll be asked to score even more during his senior season.  The 6-7 forward has been inconsistent at times and if he has a streak of bad games, the Dons could be in trouble.  Riley has to stay on the floor and be a more reliable scoring threat for USF to be on top of the WCC.

 

Projected Conference Rank: The Dons are planning on having a difficult non-conference schedule with games against Stanford and St. Joe’s.  They’ll be prepared for the West Coast Conference match-ups by the time they come around.  The best is yet to come in San Fran and finishing 4th this year is a step in that direction.

 

2003-04 Post-season: none

Projected 2004-05 Post-season : none
