Women's basketball preview: South Florida Bulls vs. Georgetown

Women: USF vs. Georgetown

When/where: 7; Sun Dome, Tampa

TV/radio: BHSN; 1010-AM

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

Notable: USF needs to play like it did Tuesday in an 86-62 win at Providence, hitting 12 3-pointers and outrebounding the Friars 56-37. Georgetown doesn't have any players averaging 10 points — 5-foot-9 G Karee Houlette leads the way at 9.2, though she's averaging 14.4 in Big East play. The Bulls have won or lost on their 3-point shooting — when guards Shantia Grace and Jazmine Sepulveda are on, as they were Tuesday, it's hard to outscore the Bulls. Sepulveda jammed a finger on her left hand in Thursday's practice, and her health is crucial to USF, despite its backcourt depth. The Hoyas don't have a player listed taller than 6-2, which could bode well for USF's 6-3 Jessica Lawson, 6-3 Brittany Denson and 6-2 Porche Grant, who each had at least 11 rebounds against Providence. After this game, the Bull have a full week to prepare for a Jan. 31 game at Rutgers.
