Women's basketball: USF Bulls at Villanova Wildcats preview


USF women at Villanova

When/where: 2 p.m. today; The Pavilion, Villanova, Pa.

Radio: 1010 AM

Records: USF 12-4, 1-2 Big East; Villanova 14-2, 3-0

Notable: Villanova is unranked but 10th in the RPI, so a road win would be huge for USF's NCAA Tournament resume. It's a battle of extremes — Villanova holds opponents to 48.6 points per game while USF's three high-scoring guards, twins Andrea and Andrell Smith and Inga Orekhova, help the Bulls average 74.1 points. One huge advantage for USF is rebounding — the Bulls lead the Big East with 46.7 per game and Villanova (35.1) is last. USF's pressure defense forced 25 turnovers in a win against Cincinnati.
