College basketball preview: USF Bulls at UCF Knights

Tonight

USF at Central Florida

When/where: 8, UCF Arena, Orlando.

TV/radio: CBS Sports Network, 98.7-FM.

Records: USF 8-3, UCF 9-3.

Notable: USF could be very shorthanded — PG Anthony Collins is "a little questionable or doubtful," says coach Stan Heath, because of a neck sprain and F Victor Rudd (concussion) could also be out; both were injured in Saturday's win over George Mason. Guards Shaun Noriega and JaVontae Hawkins are out, and F Kore White is limited by turf toe. All that means USF will have its hands full against a team it lost to by 18 in the season opener in Tampa. The Knights stars of that game were 6-9 F Keith Clanton (17 ppg, 9.6 rpg) and 6-5 G Isaiah Sykes (14.8 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 5 apg). USF wraps up its nonconference schedule, with Big East play starting Sunday at home against Syracuse.
