USF Bulls vs. Central Florida Knights men's college basketball preview



When/where: 7 p.m.; Sun Dome, Tampa

TV/radio: BHSN; 98.7-FM, 1010-AM

Notable: It's a preview of the Big East next season when UCF comes on board; USF's nonconference schedule is bookended by tonight's home game and a Jan. 2 trip to UCF. The Bulls have won 10 of the past 12 in the series; UCF won the last meeting in 2010 in Orlando. The Bulls have a smaller, more uptempo look, but after getting outrebounded by Division II Eckerd on Monday, USF must be prepared for Knights senior Keith Clanton, who averaged a team-best 14.5 points and 8.1 rebounds per game. USF PG Anthony Collins has been limited by a calf injury so his new backup, junior Martino Brock, who had nine assists in the exhibition Monday, might play more.


USF women vs. Stetson

When/where: 2 p.m., Sun Dome, Tampa

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: USF 0-0, Stetson 0-1.

Notable: Stetson played its opener Friday in Daytona Beach, committing 24 turnovers in a 77-75 loss to Hofstra. Both teams went to the Women's NIT last season, with Stetson going 23-11 and USF finishing 19-16; the Bulls won last year's meeting 77-62 in Tampa. USF gets a boost from the return of senior G Andrea Smith, who missed last season recovering from ACL surgery; the Bulls also return last year's top scorer in G Inga Orekhova, giving them two strong perimeter shooters. Stetson got 24 points from G Shanasa Sanders on Friday, and the Hatters have a local in senior F Janelle Mills of Wesley Chapel.
