College basketball: USF-Cincinnati preview

USF vs. No. 19 Cincinnati

When/where: 5; Sun Dome

TV/radio: ESPNU; 98.7-FM

Records: USF 10-7, 1-3 American Athletic; Cincinnati 16-2, 5-0

Notable: This game marks the start of a 16-day stretch for USF in which it faces four ranked teams, including Cincinnati twice. Coach Stan Heath said any remaining postseason hopes hinge on the Bulls protecting homecourt, where they're 6-4 (0-2 in conference play) this season. The Bearcats, winners of nine in a row, are the best defensive team in the league, allowing 56.3 points a game. USF, by contrast, averages a league-low 68.9 points on offense.
