College basketball preview: USF vs. UConn


USF vs. Connecticut

When/where: 9, Sun Dome, Tampa

TV/radio: ESPNU; 98.7-FM

Records: UConn 19-9, 9-7 Big East; USF 11-17, 2-14

Notable: The Bulls hope to build off Sunday's home win against DePaul, which ended a 10-game losing streak. … USF played close with UConn for a half in the first meeting, but the Huskies pulled away. … UConn guard Shabazz Napier is questionable with a foot injury. He is third in the Big East in scoring in conference games at 17.6, fifth in assists, sixth in steals and third in 3-point accuracy. … The Bulls scored 80 against DePaul, a good tuneup for Kevin Ollie's club. UConn leads the Big East in conference scoring at 70.9, while USF is last at 54.
