South Florida Bulls at Pittsburgh women's basketball preview


USF at Pittsburgh

When/where: 2 p.m.; Petersen Events Center, Pittsburgh

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: USF 14-4, 1-3 Big East; Pittsburgh 11-4, 1-2

Notable: Pittsburgh was ranked just a week ago but has dropped three of its past five. The Bulls likely need a .500 league record to make the NCAA Tournament, so getting road wins are crucial. The Bulls' top three scorers — guards Shantia Grace, Jazmine Sepulveda and Janae Stokes — have shot poorly in USF's three league losses, collectively shooting less than 20 percent in those games. These are the Big East's top two teams in rebounds and blocked shots, as well as turnover margin. USF has gotten strong play from senior C Jessica Lawson, who had 14 points and 16 rebounds in a loss to Louisville. Pitt has the league's top scorer in G Shavonte Zellous (23.6 points per game), but watch out for senior Xenia Stewart and 6-6 freshman Shawnice Wilson.
