Women's college basketball preview: USF Bulls at Pittsburgh Panthers


USF women at Pittsburgh

When/where: 1; Peterson Events Center, Pittsburgh

Radio: 1010-AM

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.

  1. Rays morning after: At least Archer looked good



  2. Seizures drove Jerry Kill out of coaching. He's back, and so are they


    PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Jerry Kill knew he was headed down a familiar path. Kill, the Rutgers offensive coordinator, acknowledged as much on a lunchtime walk around the Scarlet Knights' football stadium two weeks ago.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The night was arranged to honor former Rays manager Joe Maddon in his first visit back to the Trop, and the standing ovation from the bipartisan crowd and scoreboard video tribute seemed proper acknowledgments of his hefty role in the Rays' success during his nine-year stint.

    Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon (70) talks with reporters during a press conference before the start of the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017.

  5. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Tuesday's Rays-Cubs game

    Chris Archer's night ended with his 11th loss, but he and the Rays should feel good about his six solid innings. After the forearm tightness scare in Chicago, he had two rough outings (15 hits, 11 runs, seven innings), so Tuesday was a reassuring rebound.
