TAMPA - Jasmine Wynne means the world to the USF women's basketball team and the Bulls plan to show much appreciation to their top scorer.

Wynne will be honored during senior night before the Bulls host Providence 7 p.m. Monday at the USF Recreation Center in the team's regular season finale. Admission is free for fans.

The Jacksonville native is the top Bull at 15.7 points per game this season (sixth in Big East) and currently has a streak of 22 straight games scoring in double figures.

"I'm just trying to go out with a bang," Wynne said earlier this season.

The 5-foot-7 guard also leads the team in rebounds (5.7 per game) and is first in the conference with 2.6 steals per contest.

"She's been our leader on and off the floor, and I couldn't be more proud of her work ethic, her commitment to her team and her game," head coach Jose Fernandez said.

Wynne had to go through a little adversity this season when she missed three games with a concussion. She returned to the floor Feb. 18 at the USF Recreation Center and scored a game-high 14 points in a 62-50 victory over Pittsburgh. She followed that up with an 18-point performance in Saturday's 80-68 loss at Notre Dame.

"As a student-athlete, the year that she's having is how you want to finish off your career," Fernandez said.
