South Florida women's basketball preview: at Providence



USF at Providence

When/where: 7; Alumni Hall, Providence, R.I.

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: USF 14-5, 1-4 Big East; Providence 7-10, 1-3

Notable: The Bulls want to avoid a big hole as they aim for a .500 record in the Big East. … Horrid perimeter shooting has doomed the Bulls in league play. The team is hitting 16 percent on 3-pointers, with none of its top three scorers hitting better than 23 percent from the field. Guards Shantia Grace, Jazmine Sepulveda and Janae Stokes have slumped, and center Jessica Lawson (10 ppg, 7.6 rebounds in league play) hasn't made up for it. … Providence's league win was at home vs. the Pittsburgh team that handed USF a 32-point loss Saturday. … The Friars don't have a go-to scorer, with 5-8 guard Chelsea Marandola averaging a team-best 10.9 points.

  1. Blake Snell steps up, but Rays lose to Orioles anyway (w/video)

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.

  3. Rays journal: Sergio Romo excited for fresh start in AL

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Sergio Romo was about to play catch with LHP Adam Kolarek before Monday's batting practice when he paused.

    RAMOS EXITS: Rays catcher Wilson Ramos clutches his head after being beaned by Ruben Tejada’s broken bat in the fifth inning. Ramos leaves the game and receives six staples to close a laceration on his head.

    The Heater

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — working a season-high seven plus innings. And it wasn't only that he got deep into the game, but how he did so, using his fastball to pound the strike zone.

  5. Urban Meyer says the Big Ten is now the equal of the SEC


    CHICAGO — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't just believe the Big Ten has closed the gap with the more heralded SEC. He is convinced the race is a dead heat already.

    Ohio State’s Urban Meyer says the Big Ten East is as strong as the SEC East was when he coached UF to two national titles.
