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.

    Captain Steven Stamkos wasn't the only key Lightning player to make a triumphant return Friday night against Nashville.

  2. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Friday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

  3. Lightning's Steven Stamkos looks close to top form in first game since November

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — RHP Alex Cobb pitched well enough to lead the Rays to an 8-3 win over the Orioles on Friday.

    Wilson Ramos gives thanks after hitting a grand slam during the second inning, putting the Rays up 4-0.

    ST. PETERSBURG — When Hurricane Irma blew through Florida earlier this month, Ww's Odessabeach remained in her comfort zone.
