Basketball preview: USF Bulls vs. Georgia Bulldogs

. TONIGHT

USF men vs. Georgia

When/where: 7; Sun Dome, Tampa

TV/radio: ESPNU; 98.7-FM, 1010-AM. Records: USF 4-2, UGA 2-4.

Notable: This is part of the SEC-Big East Challenge. Neither team has won in the event before; Georgia is 0-2, and USF lost to Vanderbilt in Nashville in 2008 in its only previous appearance. This is a good opportunity for USF. Georgia has lost to Southern Miss and Youngstown State, with its wins against East Tennessee State and Jacksonville. The Bulldogs lost by four to UCLA and by 13 to No. 1 Indiana. Georgia is led by 6-foot-5 sophomore G Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who averages 17.3 points and 6.5 rebounds. USF is led by senior F Toarlyn Fitzpatrick's 13 points per game, with senior G Jawanza Poland at 11 points per game off the bench.

  1. Blake Snell steps up, but Rays lose to Orioles anyway (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.

  3. Rays journal: Sergio Romo excited for fresh start in AL

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Sergio Romo was about to play catch with LHP Adam Kolarek before Monday's batting practice when he paused.

    RAMOS EXITS: Rays catcher Wilson Ramos clutches his head after being beaned by Ruben Tejada’s broken bat in the fifth inning. Ramos leaves the game and receives six staples to close a laceration on his head.
  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Monday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — working a season-high seven plus innings. And it wasn't only that he got deep into the game, but how he did so, using his fastball to pound the strike zone.

  5. Urban Meyer says the Big Ten is now the equal of the SEC

    College

    CHICAGO — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't just believe the Big Ten has closed the gap with the more heralded SEC. He is convinced the race is a dead heat already.

    Ohio State’s Urban Meyer says the Big Ten East is as strong as the SEC East was when he coached UF to two national titles.
