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.

  1. Rays let early lead get away again in loss to Angels (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    Tampa Bay Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo (25) high fives designated hitter Corey Dickerson (10) as he rounds third on his lead off home run in the first inning of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Monday, May 22, 2017.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  3. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has

    ST. PETERSBURG

    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
