College basketball preview: South Florida Bulls men at Rutgers

USF at Rutgers

When/where: 2; Louis Brown Athletic Center, New Brunswick, N.J.

Radio: 1250-AM

Records: USF 9-20, 4-13 Big East; Rutgers 10-20, 1-16

Notable: USF is coming off a win against Cincinnati and has confidence from sweeping Rutgers last season. … The Bulls will stay in New Jersey for two days before heading to New York on Monday to prepare for the Big East tournament, where they'll play Tuesday. … Rutgers' top two players are freshmen, with 6-3 G Mike Rosario leading the team at 16.8 points per game and 6-9, 260-pound F Greg Echenique grabbing a team-best 8.3 rebounds. … USF could get a boost if senior G Jesus Verdejo, who has been sidelined with an injured right foot, can play; he is questionable. The Bulls got 30 points from guard Dominique Jones against Cincinnati, and he leads USF with 18.5 ppg.
