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.

  2. Rays blow lead in ninth, lose in 10 to Rangers (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Rays manager Kevin Cash liked the way Alex Cobb was competing Friday night. He liked the way the hard contact made by the Rangers batters went away after the second or third inning. So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …

    Rays starter Alex Cobb can hardly believe what just happened as he leaves the game in the ninth after allowing a leadoff double then a tying two-run homer to the Rangers’ Shin-Soo Choo.
