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.
