Women's college basketball preview: USF Bulls vs. Bethune-Cookman Wildcats


USF women vs. Bethune-Cookman

When/where: 7; USF Rec Center, Tampa

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: Bethune-Cookman 1-0, USF 2-2

Notable: USF is coming off a 35-point win against North Florida on Tuesday, and though they're playing their fifth game in seven days, the Bulls shouldn't have problems with the Wildcats, who beat NAIA Ave Maria 74-52 in their opener. … B-CU doesn't have a player taller than 6 feet 1, which bodes well for USF and its frontcourt combo of junior Caitlin Rowe and sophomore Akila McDonald, both 6-4. Rowe is tied for the team lead at 11.8 ppg with guard Kaneisha Saunders. … Most concerning in USF's stats through four games is the ballhandling. As a team, the Bulls have 48 assists and 74 turnovers.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Saturday's game got away starting with a leadoff walk in the seventh inning by Rays LHP Jose Alvarado, who was brought in exclusively to face Baltimore's lefty-swinging Seth Smith.

    Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz wipes his face as he walks off the mound after the Orioles score four during the seventh inning to give them a 7-3 lead. Diaz was one strike away from working out of the jam before he allowed a two-run double and a two-run homer on back-to-back pitches.
