College basketball preview: USF Bulls at Rutgers Scarlet Knights

. TONIGHT

USF at Rutgers

When/where: 9; Rutgers Athletic Center, Piscataway, N.J.

TV/radio: ESPN2; 98.7-FM, 1010-AM

Records: USF 9-6, 0-3 Big East; Rutgers 11-4, 2-2

Notable: USF is the only Big East team without a conference win, hurt by rebounding issues. … Guard-heavy Rutgers' top scorers are sophomores Eli Carter (16.1 ppg) and Myles Mack (13), who are the Big East's top free-throw shooters at 89 and 92 percent, respectively. … USF has had solid defensive play from its guards but ranks last in the Big East in assists and is second-to-last in steals. … One statistic where point guard Anthony Collins and shooting guard Martino Brock can make a difference: Rutgers is last in the Big East in turnover margin.
