Women: USF at W. Va.
When/where: 7; WVU Coliseum, Morgantown
Records: USF 18-8, 5-7 Big East; West Virginia 14-11, 3-9
Notable: Must-win for USF, which is on the NCAA bubble and needs to claw back to .500 in conference play after a home loss to No. 24 Notre Dame. The Mountaineers are coming off back-to-back road losses, including an overtime loss at Georgetown. West Virginia has just one league win against a team above it in the standings, and USF has won three straight conference road games, playing better away from the Sun Dome. That will have to continue, with three of the final four games on the road. Senior G Shantia Grace hasn't been in the primary scoring role as much, with her assists up and junior G Janae Stokes continuing to hit 3-pointers with consistency. The Bulls lead the Big East in turnover margin, and that advantage should help them tonight.
