College basketball preview: South Florida women vs. Cincinnati


USF women vs. Cincinnati

When/where: 2; Sun Dome, Tampa

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: USF 19-9, 6-8 Big East; Cincinnati 13-14, 3-11

Notable: It's Senior Day for USF as seven Bulls play their final home game, and it's a must-win as USF tries to stay in the mix for an at-large berth to the NCAA Tournament. Cincinnati has dropped 10 in a row after a 3-1 start in Big East play, but it has knocked off two RPI top 50 teams in Xavier and Villanova this season. Today marks the Sun Dome farewell for four regular starters: guards Shantia Grace and Jazmine Sepulveda and frontcourt players Jessica Lawson and Brittany Denson, as well as reserve Ashley Sanders. Grace is the only four-year player of the group, and she's averaging a team-best 15.1 points, trying to get back to the NCAAs, where she played as a freshman. USF leads the Big East in turnover margin, while Cincinnati ranks last, so creating points off turnovers will be a key for USF.

  4. The legacy of Tim Tebow's baseball summer


    CLEARWATER — It was about three weeks ago. A Saturday night. I sat behind home plate at a Charlotte Stone Crabs game at Charlotte Sports Park. There was a professional baseball scout sitting just behind me with a speed gun in his hand. He had seen the whole thing.

    Seth Bosch, left, of Punta Gorda, Fla., met Tim Tebow in Port Charlotte, Fla., in late July when Tebow, while in the on-deck circle during a game, shook hands with Seth through the backstop screen. The moment was captured on video by Seth's mother, as was the home run Tebow promptly hit in his ensuing at bat. Seth, who has high-functioning autism and other health issues, celebrated wildly and the video went viral. PHOTO PROVIDED
