College basketball preview: USF Bulls vs. Pittsburgh Panthers

USF vs. Pittsburgh

When/where: 7 p.m.; Tampa Bay Times Forum, Tampa

TV/radio: BHSN; 620-AM

Records: Pittsburgh 15-9, 4-7 Big East; USF 13-10, 6-4

Notable: Here are two teams coming from decidedly different directions. USF is coming off a 30-point loss at Georgetown, its most lopsided conference loss since joining the Big East in 2005, while Pittsburgh has surged to four wins in a row with the healthy return of PG Tray Woodall. … The Bulls are struggling to score; Augustus Gilchrist, averaging 11 points, is the only USF player averaging double-digits. … USF needs PG Anthony Collins to hit enough shots that defenses don't ignore him, as Georgetown did; Collins is averaging 6.4 points, mostly on drives and free throws.

  1. Roger Mooney's takeaways from Saturday's Lightning-Penguins game

    Lightning Strikes

    Man, is Nikita Kucherov fun to watch. He has a goal in all but one game this season and points in all nine. You have to watch him each time he is on the ice because he is going to do something you do not want to miss: a goal, a shot that requires a tough save, a nifty pass to set up a linemate for a goal.

    College

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Central Florida finally had been tested in a tight game, and someone wondered if coach Scott Frost enjoyed seeing how his team reacted to the situation.

    Freshman  Otis Anderson gives UCF plenty of reasons to celebrate after scoring the final touchdown of the game to clinch bowl eligibility for the Knights.
  3. No. 8 Miami survives Syracuse test, beats Orange 27-19

    College

    MIAMI GARDENS — By Miami's new standards, this game was decided early.

    Sophomore Travis Homer on Miami’s hot start: “We’re 6-0, but that’s not our final goal. That’s not going to get to our head.”
  4. Stroud: Bucs need to stop digging holes on road

    Bucs

    TAMPA — Okay, all you road scholars, why do the Bucs keep falling behind in games not played at Raymond James Stadium?

  5. Topkin: A busy offseason for Rays approaching as postseason winds down

    The Heater

    Tuesday's opening of the World Series means the end of the postseason is in sight and that the offseason maneuvering, which starts five days after the final out, can soon evolve from talk to action.
