College women's basketball preview capsule: USF Bulls at Syracuse Orangemen, 1 p.m. Saturday

USF women at Syracuse

When/where: 1 p.m.; Carrier Dome, Syracuse, N.Y.

Radio: 1010 AM

Records: USF 12-11, 4-5 Big East; Syracuse 14-9, 3-6

Notable: It's the kind of game USF needs to win in the final month of the season if the Bulls want to play in any kind of postseason. Syracuse is the conference's worst 3-point-shooting team in Big East play, hitting just 19.8 percent. That means Syracuse will want to win inside, where USF has the league's worst rebound margin, getting outrebounded by an average of 8.1 boards per conference game. … Syracuse, led by 6-4 junior C Kayla Alexander, is fourth in the league.

  1. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.

  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Mariners game

    The Heater

    SS Adeiny Hechavarria doesn't always look like he's going hard, but he showed impressive reactions Saturday in reversing field to catch a ball that clanked off the catwalk then firing to second to double up Guillermo Heredia on an attempt to tag up.
