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.
