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.

    CLEARWATER — No matter what happens in Friday's Class 4A state semifinal against Delray Beach American Heritage, Calvary Christian has already had a historic season. The unbeaten Warriors have won 28 games and qualified for the school's first state baseball tournament.

    The addition of Nolan Hudi to the rotation made a difference, said Calvary Christian coach Greg Olsen. “It was huge.”
