USF women at St. John's
When/where: 11:30 a.m.; Carnesecca Arena, Queens, N.Y.
Records: USF 12-12, 4-6 Big East; St. John's 15-8, 7-3
Notable: It's Field Trip Day at St. John's, so the Bulls get the rare weekday morning tipoff, hoping to break out of a 1-4 slump. … The Bulls have struggled of late, trailing by 31 in the second half of a Saturday loss at Syracuse. Top scorer Jasmine Wynne didn't travel after suffering a concussion, and starting guard Shalethia Stringfield stayed home due to a death in the family. Senior Andrell Smith will likely start at 2-guard, with Kaneisha Saunders or Sasha Bernard stepping in at the point. … St. John's is led by guard Eugeneia McPherson, who averages 13.3 points.
