Men's basketball preview: USF Bulls vs. Providence Friars


USF vs. Providence

When/where: Noon; Sun Dome, Tampa

Radio: 620-AM

Records: USF 6-12, 0-5 Big East; Providence 11-7, 0-5

Notable: Two of the three teams still winless in conference play go head-to-head — if the Bulls lose today at home, there might not be many wins left on the schedule. USF has played close in all its games — 11 of the 12 losses are by single digits, the exception a 12-point loss to Villanova. … USF F Augustus Gilchrist is averaging 17 points and 7.8 rebounds in league play, among the conference's best in both categories. … Providence G/F Marshon Brooks leads the league with 23.4 points per game in conference play and averages eight rebounds. … USF has been the league's No. 2 team in rebounding margin in conference play, so if the perimeter shooting can step up, USF might end its seven-game losing streak.
