Women's college basketball preview: USF at Florida Gulf Coast


USF women at Florida Gulf Coast

When/where: 7:05; Alico Arena, Fort Myers

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: USF 4-2, FGCU 4-3

Notable: The Bulls play their first game without 6-foot-2 senior G Inga Orekhova (7 ppg), who had knee surgery Monday. Sophomore Courtney Williams, the Bulls' top scorer (16 ppg), replaces her in the starting lineup. … The Bulls' two losses have resulted almost exclusively from poor shooting; in six games they're 31-for-123 (25.2 percent) from 3-point range. They're outrebounding opponents by more than 10 per game. … FGCU returns only two regulars from the 27-7 team that went undefeated in Atlantic Sun play last year. It has lost to TCU, Southern Miss and Stanford.

  4. Nature Coast puts unbeaten streak on the line vs. IMG White


    BROOKSVILLE — Nature Coast currently rides a 22-game regular-season win streak, but first-year football coach Cory Johns was not around for any of those wins. Neither was most of his coaching staff. This is an entirely new campaign with new obstacles ahead.
