Women's college basketball preview: USF Bulls at Seton Hall Pirates


USF women at Seton Hall

When/where: 7; Walsh Gymnasium, South Orange, N.J.

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: USF 12-5, 1-3 Big East; Seton Hall 7-11, 2-3

Notable: USF has never lost to Seton Hall since joining the Big East. It's a road win the Bulls should be able to get, with an RPI of 64 and Seton Hall at 221. … USF has two of the Big East's top five scorers in twin guards Andrea and Andrell Smith, averaging 18.2 and 16.7 points. … Seton Hall is the Big East's worst-shooting team at 35 percent from the field. Brittany Morris leads the team at 12.5 points per game. … USF is coming off a home loss; a foul with 0.3 seconds left and the score tied allowed Villanova to hit the winning free throws Saturday. … USF likely needs a winning record in Big East play to secure a berth in the NCAA Tournament, so lighter road games like this become must-wins.

    ST. PETERSBURG — It was still a game in the fifth inning when LHP Blake Snell walked the leadoff batter, then allowed a single. One swing by the Cubs' Ian Happ (22 home runs) could put a dent in the Rays' three-run lead.

    Blake Snell allows just two hits in pitching seven scoreless innings.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The first foray back to the Trop by the best manager the Rays have had obscured the second return visit by arguably the second-best player in franchise history.


    Chicago Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist (18) grounds into a double play to end the top of the third inning of the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017.

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.
