College basketball game capsule: USF Bulls women basketball at No. 3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 2 p.m. Saturday

Today's games

USF women at No. 3 Notre Dame

When/where: 2; Joyce Center, South Bend, Ind.

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: USF 15-13, 7-7 Big East; Notre Dame 26-2, 13-1

Notable: This might be tougher than USF's men's team playing at No. 2 Syracuse on Wednesday. Notre Dame is outscoring teams by 30.3 points per game. … Irish G Skylar Diggins leads the conference at 5.8 assists per game and is fourth in scoring at 17.3 ppg. … One more win and USF clinches a winning record, which should give it a spot in the Women's NIT. … The Bulls close out the regular season at home Monday against Providence but likely won't be able to get a first-round bye for the Big East tournament, which starts Friday in Hartford, Conn. Picked 10th in the preseason by league coaches, the Bulls currently sit ninth.
