USF at Providence
When/where: 4; Dunkin' Donuts Center, Providence, R.I.
Records: USF 14-10, 7-4 Big East; Providence 13-12, 2-10
Notable: The Bulls open a three-game stretch against Big East teams they've already beaten, with Providence, then Villanova, then Pittsburgh. USF won 81-78 in Tampa on Jan. 29 despite the Friars getting 33 points from freshman F LaDontae Henton. … USF F Toarlyn Fitzpatrick is second in the Big East in 3-point accuracy, hitting 45.8 percent of his attempts beyond the arc. A win today would be USF's third on the road in conference play, matching the 2009-10 season for the Bulls' most in any Big East campaign. … The game can be seen online at ESPN3.com.
