South Florida Bulls women's basketball vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons preview at a glance

USF women at Wake Forest

When/where: 5, Joel Coliseum, Winston-Salem, N.C.

Radio: 1010-AM.

Records: USF 1-1, Wake Forest 1-0.

Notable: USF is coming off an 88-72 win against St. Peter's. Wake Forest (No. 71) is one of just two top-100 RPI teams from last season on the Bulls' nonconference schedule, so it's a key opportunity to bolster a potential NCAA Tournament resume. The Demon Deacons got a strong debut from 6-foot-3 freshman forward Sandra Garcia of Hollywood, Fla., who had 19 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks in a 64-47 win Friday against Jacksonville. USF has had balanced scoring, with senior center Jessica Lawson and senior guard Janae Stokes both averaging 19 points in the first two games and freshman guard KaNeisha Saunders averaging 17. Wake Forest went 19-12 last season and 5-9 in the ACC, while USF went 27-10 and won the WNIT championship after missing the NCAA cut.
