Women's college basketball preview capsule: USF Bulls at Villanova

USF women at Villanova

Related News/Archive

When/where: Noon; The Pavilion, Philadelphia

TV/radio: BHSN; 1010-AM

Records: USF 10-18, 1-13 Big East; Villanova 10-17, 2-12

Notable: USF will play without senior F Porche Grant, its top rebounder, who is suspended for two games for making an obscene gesture to Rutgers fans in Wednesday's loss. That hurts the Bulls more because Villanova is the Big East's worst rebounding team, averaging 10.9 fewer boards than its opponents. … The Wildcats hit a league-high 7.5 3-pointers per game but don't shoot even 30 percent beyond the arc as a team. … USF needs not only a solid game from G Andrea Smith (17.0 points per game) but a stronger supporting cast — no other Bull is averaging even half as many points as Smith. … Villanova shoots a Big East-best 79.8 percent at the free-throw line; USF shoots 66.1 percent.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Saturday's game got away starting with a leadoff walk in the seventh inning by Rays LHP Jose Alvarado, who was brought in exclusively to face Baltimore's lefty-swinging Seth Smith.

    Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz wipes his face as he walks off the mound after the Orioles score four during the seventh inning to give them a 7-3 lead. Diaz was one strike away from working out of the jam before he allowed a two-run double and a two-run homer on back-to-back pitches.
