Men's college basketball preview capsule: USF Bulls at DePaul

USF at DePaul

Related News/Archive

When/where: 2; Allstate Arena, Chicago

TV/radio: Ch. 28; 1250-AM

Records: USF 8-20, 2-13 Big East; DePaul 7-20, 1-14

Notable: USF has won five straight against the Blue Demons, and the Bulls need a win to stay out of last place in the Big East standings. USF is 0-11 on the road this season, though it did beat DePaul in Tampa on Jan. 27 in the first meeting this season. … Freshman F Cleveland Melvin leads DePaul with 14.3 points per game, while USF is getting 12.2 points from junior F Augustus Gilchrist. Watch out for G Jawanza Poland, who has been making the highlight reels with high-flying dunks and is averaging 9.9 points for USF. … The Bulls went 6-for-12 on 3-pointers in the first meeting. That kind of perimeter success would give the Bulls a better chance at notching that first road win and securing a better seed for the Big East tournament.
