College basketball preview: USF at No. 7 Georgetown


USF at No. 7 Georgetown

When/where: 7; Verizon Center, Washington, D.C.

TV/radio: BHSN; 1250-AM

Records: USF 14-7, 4-5 Big East; Georgetown 16-4, 6-3

Notable: USF is on a three-game winning streak, but the Bulls will have their hands full with the Hoyas. USF has been riding junior G Dominique Jones, who averaged 29.5 points in January, but coach Stan Heath has stressed the need for his supporting cast to step up. … The Hoyas have two elite scorers in 6-4 G Austin Freeman (16.2 ppg) and 6-11 C Greg Monroe (15.1 ppg, 9.8 rebounds). … The Bulls need a big game from junior C Jarrid Famous, who has seven games with 10 or more rebounds in his past 14 games. … Injured F Gus Gilchrist, out since December with a severely sprained ankle, will not make the trip, but Heath is optimistic he can return Sunday at Notre Dame.
