USF women vs. Syracuse

When/where: 4 p.m., Sun Dome, Tampa.

Radio: 1010-AM.

Records: USF 9-7, 0-3 Big East; Syracuse 15-1, 2-1.

Notable: The Bulls have struggled in Big East play, averaging 23 turnovers per game and hitting just 23 percent of 3-point shots. Senior Jessica Lawson has averaged 14.4 points and 10.4 rebounds, but Syracuse has depth in a strong frontcourt and is averaging 13.5 more rebounds than its opponents. The Orange is led by 6-foot-2 senior forward Nicole Michael, who averages 14.7 points and 7.8 rebounds. If the Bulls can't improve quickly, their streak of six straight postseason appearances is in jeopardy. … To support aid for earthquake victims in Haiti, USF is accepting donations of non-perishable food items, clothing for all ages, toiletries, and first aid supplies, which will be donated to the American Red Cross. Senior center Melissa Dalembert's parents were born in Haiti. She lost one family member in the earthquake and had two other relatives injured.
