South Florida men's basketball preview: vs. DePaul

.Tonight

MEN

USF vs. DePaul

When/where: 9; Sun Dome, Tampa

TV/radio: ESPNU; 1250-AM

Records: DePaul 8-10, 0-5 Big East; USF 6-11, 1-4

Notable: Senior guard Jesus Verdejo, who had 18 points and six assists in the earlier win over DePaul, suffered a concussion in Saturday's loss at West Virginia after landing on an opponent and pushing in a front tooth. Verdejo played the rest of the game but passed out in the shower afterward. He had a root canal on the damaged tooth Monday and is listed as doubtful for tonight, with freshman guard Justin Leemow likely starting in his place. … Guard Dominique Jones had 35 points in Saturday's loss. … The Bulls got Demons star Dar Tucker in foul trouble in the last game, but center Mac Koshwal still had 18 points and eight rebounds. … DePaul made 2 of 13 3-pointers in the loss to USF.
