. today

USF vs. Temple

When/where: 2, Sun Dome

TV/radio: ESPNews, 98.7-FM

Records: USF 12-18, 3-14 American Athletic; Temple 8-21, 3-14

Notable: USF won the first meeting 82-75 in early January, when Owls junior G Will Cummings (16.6 points per game, 4.3 assists) went out after suffering a concussion in the opening minute. This is the final home game for Bulls seniors Victor Rudd and Martino Brock. Rudd needs 14 points to enter the top 10 in career scoring at USF. Freshman PG Josh Heath, who made his collegiate debut at Temple, is expected to make his third consecutive start. Heath has 15 points and four turnovers in his last three games, and is coming off a career-best eight-assist night in Tuesday's 78-69 loss at Houston.
