Women's college basketball preview: USF Bulls at Rutgers Scarlet Knights
USF women at Rutgers
When/where: 7:30; Louis Brown Athletic Center,
New Brunswick, N.J.
Records: USF 10-17, 1-12 Big East; Rutgers 15-11, 8-5
Notable: Rutgers' only home loss came against Connecticut, though USF upset the Scarlet Knights two years ago the last time the teams played there. … The biggest difference is defense: Rutgers is second in the Big East in conference play, allowing 53.6 points per game, while USF is last in the league, allowing 70.6. … Rutgers has the league's assist leader in PG Khadijah Rushdan and two solid scorers in G April Sykes and F Monique Oliver. … USF's Andrea Smith is third in the league in conference scoring at 17.5 points per game, but the Bulls have struggled to find consistent scoring complements.
