College basketball preview: USF Bulls vs. No. 7 Syracuse Orange, noon Sunday


USF vs. No. 7 Syracuse

When/where: Noon; Sun Dome, Tampa

TV/radio: Ch. 28; 98.7-FM

Records: USF 9-3, 0-0 Big East; Syracuse 13-1, 1-0

Notable: Two of the nation's top point guards, a pair of sophomores, go head-to-head as Syracuse phenom Michael Carter-Williams, leading the nation with 10.1 assists per game, goes up against USF's Anthony Collins, who averages 7.8. … It's Syracuse's last trip to Tampa as a member of the Big East. As the Orange head to the ACC, USF doesn't have Syracuse among the Big East banners hanging in the Sun Dome. … Syracuse's only loss came to Temple.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell delivered the best outing of his young career and the Rays offense continued its home run-hitting ways for a 3-0 victory Sunday against the Mariners in front of 13,354 at Tropicana Field.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

  4. Bats come to life, but Rays' freefall continues (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
