USF women at Pittsburgh
When/where: 1; Peterson Events Center, Pittsburgh
Records: USF 14-6, 3-4 Big East; Pittsburgh 9-11, 0-7
Notable: This is a must-win road game for USF's NCAA Tournament hopes. Three of the Bulls' next four are outside the RPI top 150, and they need a .500 Big East record for a reasonable shot at an at-large berth. … Only one of Pitt's conference losses has been by fewer than nine points. … The Bulls continue to be led by senior twin guards Andrea and Andrell Smith. Andrea is averaging 20 points in conference play while Andrell is getting 14. … Freshman Alisia Jenkins has started every Big East game and is averaging 7.0 points and a team-best 9.7 rebounds. … Andrea Smith has been slowed by a toe injury but is expected to be fine for today's game.
