FSU-Northwestern, USF-UAB basketball notes


FSU at Northwestern

When/where: 9:30; Welsh-Ryan Arena, Evanston, Ill.

TV/radio: ESPN2; 1040-AM

Records: FSU 7-0, Northwestern 4-1

Notable: The Seminoles and Northwestern meet for the fourth time as part of the 10th ACC-Big Ten Challenge. FSU won in 1999 and 2003 but lost in 2001. … FSU is looking to win its third straight away from home (either on an opponent's floor or a neutral site), something it hasn't done since the 1997-98 season. … The Wildcats, who are 3-0 at home, are holding opponents to an average of 50.2 points on 39 percent shooting. The Seminoles, led by senior G Toney Douglas, are averaging 70 points on 43.8 percent shooting. … FSU leads the series 3-1.

When/where: 9; Bartow Arena, Birmingham, Ala.

Radio: 1250-AM

Records: USF 3-1, UAB 4-2

Notable: A win would be huge for USF's confidence on the road. The Bulls lost by two at Virginia in their only other road game. … UAB has three players averaging 17 points or more: 6-5 guard Robert Vaden (19.2), a likely NBA pick, 6-2 guard Paul Delaney (18.4) and 6-8, 210-pound forward Lawrence Kinnard (17). … USF is holding opponents to 32.3 percent shooting and 51.5 points per game, both best in the Big East. (It is last in scoring offense by 7.6 points.) … Sophomore guard Dominique Jones leads at 16.3 points per game.
