 The fans at Trojan Arena will be treated to a game between the South Florida Bulls and the Troy Trojans when they take their seats on Thursday.

ABOUT SOUTH FLORIDA (3-2): Da Silva, a 6-7 forward, scored in double figures in the last four games and drained 17-of-26 from the field over the last three. “He’s such a talent and his best basketball is still way ahead of him,” Antigua told reporters. “He’s just starting to scratch the surface of what we think he could become for us.” Penn State transfer Geno Thorpe leads the team in scoring (15.2) and assists (4.6) while freshman guard Michael Bibby is 9 for 16 from 3-point range.

ABOUT TROY (3-3): The Trojans jumped to a 16-0 lead and held Hawaii to 35.7 percent shooting from the field last time out, but turned the ball over 16 times and had to hold off a rally before winning their first road game. Sophomore forward Jordon Varnado leads the way while averaging 14.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.7 blocks and draining 52.9 percent from the field. Wesley Person (13.8) is the only other player scoring in double figures and fellow junior guard Kevin Baker is contributing 8.8 points and 3.0 assists per contest.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Trojans listed as 5.5-point favorites versus the Bulls, while the game’s total is sitting at 137.5 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

South Florida looks to win two straight games for the first time this season when it goes on the road to face Troy of the Sun Belt Conference on Thursday night. The short-handed Bulls, who have alternated wins and losses through five games, shot 72 percent from the field in the first half to take a 21-point lead before holding on for a 71-69 victory over Kennesaw State on Monday at home.

“With a young team you have to learn how to continue to compete and not look at the score when you have a lead like that,” USF coach Orlando Antigua told reporters. “I think now they’ll listen a little bit.” The Bulls were without starting forward Bo Zeigler on Monday because of illness and last season’s leading scorer Jahmal McMurray’s six-game suspension ends after the game against Troy. Freshman Tulio Da Silva from Brazil was impressive in his first five collegiate games for USF, averaging 12.8 points and eight rebounds while shooting 57.5 percent from the field. The Trojans snapped a three-game losing streak with a 65-63 victory against Hawaii on Saturday.

Troy was a 65-63 winner in its last match on the road against Warriors. They covered the +6.5-point spread as underdogs.

South Florida was a 71-69 winner in their most recent outing at home against Owls.
