South Florida Bulls vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers women's basketball preview


USF at Nebraska

When/where: 6:05; Bob Devaney Sports Center, Lincoln, Neb.

Radio: 1010 AMRecords: USF 9-5, Nebraska 8-4

Notable: USF has a higher RPI, but the Cornhuskers handed Miami its only loss. The two teams were in the same tournament two weeks ago, as USF went 2-1 in Las Vegas and Nebraska 0-3, though there were no common opponents. Nebraska has an auspiciously named freshman forward in 6-2 Jordan Hooper, who has averaged 15.9 points and 7.1 rebounds; 5-foot-7 G Dominique Kelly is also averaging 15 points. USF is getting 16.9 points a game from G Andrea Smith, with senior C Porche Grant close to a double double with 8.3 points and 10.8 rebounds. Neither team has played in 10 days. It's the final nonconference game for USF, which returns to Big East action Wednesday at home against Cincinnati.

  5. What major sporting event could Tampa Bay land next?

    Lightning Strikes

    We are on quite a roll as a community. First, we had a Super Bowl drop from the storm clouds into our lap. It just reaffirms the fact that Tampa Bay is great at lap. And Monday it became official: Next year's NHL All-Star Game will be held at Amalie Arena. The best in the world will be here to shoot and score. And …
