A round trip from tampa to Guangzhou can't allow you to enjoy 72 hours free transit in Guangzhou. The rule states clearly that the place of departure and your destination shouldn't be the same. By the way, your itinerary (Tampa-Guangzhou (flight)-HK(bus or train) is not in accordance with the rule too. If you plan to enjoy the free transit, you should fly from Tampa to Guangzhou and then fly to HK.
