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.

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.

    Kyle Busch celebrates with a burnout after his third victory of the season that earns a berth in the second round of NASCAR’s playoffs. He also has some fun with Loudon the Lobster.
