College women's basketball preview capsule: USF Bulls at No. 3 UConn Huskies, 1 p.m. Saturday

USF women at No. 3 UConn

When/where: 1 p.m. today; XL Center, Hartford, Conn.

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: USF 12-9, 4-3 Big East; UConn 18-2, 7-1

Notable: The Bulls are 0-10 all time against the Huskies, though coach Jose Fernandez can remind his players about December 2004, when USF took UConn to overtime in Storrs before falling 75-65. The closest they've come since is 14 points, including a 26-point loss in Tampa last year. … The Bulls beat Seton Hall on Wednesday, rallying from a 12-point deficit despite going 1-for-14 on 3-pointers. … USF senior guard Jasmine Wynne is averaging 16.0 points a game. … UConn is led by Winter Haven's Tiffany Hayes but keep an eye out for talented freshman Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, who doesn't start but is nearly the team's leading scorer.
