USF at Cincinnati
When/where: Noon; Fifth Third Arena, Cincinnati
Records: USF 11-8, 2-4 Big East; Cincinnati 9-10, 2-5
Notable: The Bulls are coming off a loss at St. John's and need a road win before next week's home games against Villanova and Rutgers. … USF will have a size advantage led by 6-foot-3 Jessica Lawson, who is averaging 12.2 points and 10.3 rebounds in Big East play. … Cincinnati's top scorers are 5-8 Kahla Roudebush (13.3), 5-7 Shareese Ulis (10.6) and 5-7 Carla Jacobs (10.2). … The Bulls lead the conference in 3-point shooting at 36 percent while the Bearcats have the worst 3-point defense at 37 percent. … Limiting turnovers, especially with PG Jasmine Wynne out with a season-ending knee injury, will be key to USF's success.
