USF women vs. Saint Francis (Pa.) basketball preview

. today

USF women vs. Saint Francis (Pa.)

When/where: 2, Sun Dome, Tampa.

Radio: 1010-AM.

Records: USF 8-4, St. Francis 2-6.

Notable: USF has struggled at home, with losses to Florida A&M, East Carolina and Tulane. The Red Flash's record won't scare anyone, but they lost at Pittsburgh by a 75-70 score, so the Bulls need to take the game seriously, if only as the final tuneup before they open Big East play Monday at Connecticut. The Bulls are getting a double double from senior C Jessica Lawson (14.7 points, 10.9 rebounds per game) and five other players average nine or more points. St. Francis' top scorer is 5-6 G Britney Hodges at 16.6 points per game. USF needs every win it can get to continue a streak of six straight postseasons.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Sergio Romo was about to play catch with LHP Adam Kolarek before Monday's batting practice when he paused.

    RAMOS EXITS: Rays catcher Wilson Ramos clutches his head after being beaned by Ruben Tejada’s broken bat in the fifth inning. Ramos leaves the game and receives six staples to close a laceration on his head.

    The Heater

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — working a season-high seven plus innings. And it wasn't only that he got deep into the game, but how he did so, using his fastball to pound the strike zone.

    CHICAGO — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't just believe the Big Ten has closed the gap with the more heralded SEC. He is convinced the race is a dead heat already.

    Ohio State’s Urban Meyer says the Big Ten East is as strong as the SEC East was when he coached UF to two national titles.
