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

USF vs. Providence

When/where: 7; Sun Dome, Tampa

Radio: 1250-AM

Records: USF 16-11, 6-9 Big East; Providence 12-15, 4-11

Notable: The Bulls have dropped off the NCAA Tournament bubble, barring a deep run in the Big East tournament, but a win today would improve their seeding. … USF won't have C Jarrid Famous in the starting lineup — he hasn't practiced since Wednesday's loss at Villanova, getting snowed in while visiting his newborn daughter in New York. … USF's four frontcourt players combined for 10 shots (14 points, 12 rebounds) vs. Villanova. All eyes will be on the Bulls' Dominique Jones, who scored a school-record 46 in the last meeting. … Providence has able scorers in 6-6 F Jamine Peterson (19.1 ppg, 10.0 rpg), 5-10 G Sharaud Curry (15.1 ppg) and 6-5 G Marshon Brooks (14.4).
