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.

  1. Roger Mooney's takeaways from Sunday's Rays-Orioles game

    RHP Erasmo Ramirez is not happy about moving back to the bullpen, and can you blame him? But that's the best move for the Rays now. He can fill several roles: long man, setup man, even closer in a pinch. The Rays need to settle the bullpen, and Ramirez has proven he's capable of doing that.
