College basketball preview: USF-Stetson


USF vs. Stetson

When/where: 7; Sun Dome

Radio: 98.7-FM, 1010-AM

Records: USF 3-0, Stetson 0-4

Notable: Three nights before seventh-ranked Oklahoma State arrives at the Sun Dome, the Bulls tune up against a winless team struggling to shoot and rebound. USF seeks its first 4-0 start since 2006. Now that junior Anthony Collins' knee problems mostly have subsided, coach Stan Heath said he's excited about having the point guard and fellow ball-handler Corey Allen (15.7 ppg, 6.3 assists, 6.0 rpg) on the floor together. Collins had seven points and five assists in 26 minutes in his season debut last Friday at Bowling Green. Heath said it's no coincidence that 6-foot-10 freshman John Egbunu also had his best game (12 points, eight rebounds, four blocks) the same night. Stetson, shooting 37.5 percent, has lost to Florida International and Florida A&M. Clearwater's Brian Pegg, a 6-7 redshirt freshman, leads the Hatters in rebounding (6.5).
