Steve Lavin returns from time with his family after Cap Lavin's death to help the Red Storm make their best effort at a stretch run to the NCAA Tournament. Tonight, in the last on-campus game for the Red Storm (barring any NIT participation) and on Lou Carnesecca bobblehead night, the Red Storm face an opponent who they should make short work of...

But as we know, Carnesecca Arena games have a tendency to not go as smoothly as planned. Like Senior Night in 2011, where South Florida hung a little too close for the first half.

Losing this game would be a death knell for the team's chances at the NCAA Tournament.
