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