Women's basketball preview: South Florida Bulls at Rutgers


USF at Rutgers

When/where: 2; Louis Brown Athletic Center, New Brunswick, N.J.

TV/radio: Bright House Sports Network; 1010-AM

Records: USF 15-6, 2-5 Big East; Rutgers 12-6, 4-3

Notable: Rutgers is 8-1 at home, so an upset won't be easy. Perimeter shooting continues to be a problem, as the Bulls are hitting just 21.6 percent of their 3-point attempts in Big East play. Leading scorer Shantia Grace (15.4 points per game) is getting just 12.6 in conference play, hitting 18 percent of her 3s. Rutgers is led by a pair of junior guards, Epiphanny Prince (20.6 ppg) and Brittany Ray (11.2). They combined for 50 points in an upset of Notre Dame. The Bulls are likely without freshman G Jasmine Wynne, a key reserve who was on crutches this week with a sprained ankle.

  4. Rays morning after: How exactly did they let that game slip away


    Rays manager Kevin Cash assumed Thursday's game was over when Gary Sanchez rolled a ground ball toward the shortstop spot with the tying run on third and two outs in the ninth. So did closer Alex Colome. As well as second baseman Tim Beckham.

    The 10 strikeouts look flashy, but RHP Chris Archer was not his sharpest Thursday. He allowed three runs on seven hits, including three straight in the two-run second and a Gary Sanchez homer in the third, and lasted only six innings, throwing 102 pitches.
