Women's college basketball game preview: USF Bulls at Cincinnati Bearcats


USF at Cincinnati

When/where: Noon; Fifth Third Arena, Cincinnati

Radio: 1010-AM

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.

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.

    BALTIMORE — RHP Alex Cobb pitched well enough to lead the Rays to an 8-3 win over the Orioles on Friday.

    Wilson Ramos gives thanks after hitting a grand slam during the second inning, putting the Rays up 4-0.
