Men's college basketball preview: USF at Providence

USF at Providence

When/where: 8 tonight; Dunkin' Donuts Arena, Providence, R.I.

TV/radio: ESPNU, 1250-AM

Records: USF 11-7, 1-5 Big East; Providence 11-7, 3-3

Notable: The Bulls are 2-35 all time in Big East road games, so a win would be significant as Stan Heath's team awaits F Gus Gilchrist's return from a sprained ankle. He is still likely a week away, but the Bulls continue to get dominant play from G Dominique Jones, who has averaged 25 points in his past four games. His supporting cast, especially Gs Chris Howard and Mike Mercer and F Jarrid Famous, have stepped up their scoring the past two games. … Providence has three players averaging at least 14 points a game in Fs Jamine Peterson and Marshon Brooks and G Sharaud Curry.
