Laquincy Rideau is the heart and soul of the pretty mediocre USF Bulls. The only senior starter, he’s a bundle of energy that was the AAC’s Defensive Player of The Year last season, and a fan favorite for his attitude and grit.
And that fight, desire, and heart is why USF covered as time expired against No. 23 Houston.
Following four consecutive missed free throws by USF’s David Collins down the stretch, the Cougars were gifted a chance to put the game out of reach, which they did by making their freebies.
But Q, as his teammates call him, came through. The Bulls were +5.5 most of the day, and closed at +6. The hook made quite a difference here... until it didn’t because of this:

As if you couldn’t love Laquincy Rideau anymore, he has a snake named Kevin. Named after Kevin Durant. He’s just the best, and Bulls backers tonight shall celebrate him.
This miracle cover just happened to be by my alma mater, so if you’ll allow me... good teams win, GREAT TEAMS COVER!
S-O-U-T-H! F-L-O-R-I-D-A! SOUTH! FLORIDA! SOUTH! FLORIDA! GOOOOOOOOOO BULLS!
