Big afternoon for men's, women's hoops



Both of USF's basketball teams have important games at 2 p.m. today -- the women's team faces 16th-seeded Cincinnati, fresh off an upset of ninth-seeded Marquette, in the second round of the Big East tournament in Hartford, while USF's men have a chance at a fifth conference win as they face Rutgers, which comes in 1-16 in Big East play.

I'm on my way up to Crystal River for today's memorial service for former USF tight end Will Bleakley, who has been missing at sea with two former Bucs players since their boat capsized in the Gulf of Mexico last weekend. I'll be back tonight to get in updates on the basketball games. You're welcome to comment on the games here as they happen, as well as on Bleakley and former USF walk-on Nick Schuyler, who was rescued Monday after spending roughly 40 hours at sea on the overturned boat.
