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.

  2. Cue the Scott Frost to Nebraska speculation


    Nebraska shook up the college sports world Thursday afternoon when it fired athletic director Shawn Eichorst.

    And that should scare UCF fans.

  3. USF defense feeds on Temple offense to take NCAA interceptions lead


    TAMPA — Backed up in his end zone, Temple quarterback Logan Marchi scrambled, trying to elude a USF defensive end coming straight for him. Until then, Marchi hadn't had much luck hitting his receivers.

  4. No. 21 USF Bulls roll over Temple to stay undefeated


    TAMPA — They emerged from Raymond James Stadium's southwest tunnel on the 11-month anniversary of their public humiliation at Temple.

  5. Fennelly: USF thrashes Temple to stay unbeaten; too bad not many saw it in person



    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry crowd at Raymond James Stadium. Where was everybody?
