College women's basketball preview capsule: USF Bulls vs. Villanova Wildcats, 7 p.m. Saturday

USF women vs. Villanova

When/where: 7; USF Rec Center, Tampa

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: USF 12-13, 4-7 Big East; Villanova 15-9, 5-6

Notable: The Bulls seek an end to a four-game skid, but for the second straight game they will have to try to do so without their top scorer, G Jasmine Wynne, out because of a concussion suffered last week. USF does get back starting PG Shalethia Stringfield, who missed one game due to a death in the family. … Villanova is the Big East's top 3-point shooting team, having hit 101; G Rachel Roberts is hitting 51 percent and F Lauren Burford 49 percent. The only player who has hit more 3s in Big East play than Burford is USF G Inga Orekhova (2.8 per game). … Fans are encouraged to wear pink as part of the Play4Kay campaign against cancer.
