USF-Houston preview

USF vs. Houston

When/where: 4; Sun Dome

TV/radio: CBS Sports Network; 98.7-FM

Records: USF 9-5, 0-1 American Athletic; Houston 9-5, 1-0

Notable: The Bulls likely will play their fifth consecutive game without PG Anthony Collins (knee tendinitis). G Javontae Hawkins, who missed Tuesday's 88-73 loss to Memphis with a hip pointer, should return. … The shorthanded Cougars beat No. 17 UConn 75-71 Tuesday, their first win against a ranked foe in three years. … Look for the Bulls to attack 6-foot-8, 240-pound junior TaShawn Thomas (17.8 points per game, 9.2 rebounds), who had 23 points and eight rebounds against UConn. His Bulls counterpart, 6-10 freshman John Egbunu, had a career game (20 points, 14 rebounds) against Memphis.
