Famous Not Starting, Dominique Jones Sick
According to the USF Sports Bulletin, junior forward Jarrid Famous will not start against the Friars after being snowed out in New York.
Fatherhood and mother nature have conspired to keep Jarrid Famous away from Tampa, as the junior center was stuck in New York with weather canceling his scheduled flight back to campus after spending time with his newborn daughter, London.
Dominique Jones also might not be at 100% for the match-up on Saturday night.
USF guard Dominique Jones, who scored a school-record 46 points in the first meeting with Providence, continues to be limited by illness — he was eating chicken noodle soup courtside before Friday’s practice. He’ll certainly play Saturday, but hasn’t been himself lately.
