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.
