College basketball preview: USF vs. No. 24 Marquette

. TONIGHT

USF vs. No. 24 Marquette

When/where: 7; Sun Dome, Tampa

TV/radio: ESPN2; 98.7-FM, 1010-AM

Records: Marquette 15-5, 6-2 Big East; USF 10-11, 1-8

Notable: The two teams play for the second time in nine days. The Golden Eagles got a 63-50 win last week in Milwaukee, led by 30 points from G Vander Blue. … USF struggled to find its shot in that game, going 8-for-19 on 3-pointers but just 7-for-36 on 2-point attempts. … USF's depth at guard could get a boost, as sophomore Musa Abdul-Aleem, out with back problems, could make his return tonight.
