Basketball preview: USF Bulls vs. Georgia Bulldogs


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.
