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

.TONIGHT

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.

  1. Dirk Koetter, not Jameis Winston, has to make the call

    Blogs

    “Touchdown” Tom Jones, the best Bucs columnist in town, htook it to the house Tuesday when he wrote that Jameis Winston should do the right thing and take a seat if he’s not perfectly healthy to play at Buffalo.

    Whether Jameis Winston plays Sunday or not is Dirk Koetter's call.
  2. This is no time for Jameis Winston to play hero

    Don't be a hero, Jameis.

    Do the right thing. Do what's best.

  3. NBA off and running to its usual ending

    Blogs

    The NBA season began Tuesday night.

    It ends in June.

    Call me when the Warriors win.

    True, there was news Tuesday night, bad news, grisly news, as Celtics small forward and newcomer Gordon Hayward dislocated his ankle and broke his tibia in a look-away injury early in Boston’s opener at LeBron.

    Call me when the Warriors win, Martin Fennelly writes.
  4. It's time for the Dodgers to be back in the World Series

    Blogs

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been 29 years since the Los Angeles Dodgers made the World Series. That’s far too long. I still remember being at Chavez Ravine for the 1988 World Series, watching Kirk Gibson homer into the right field stands to beat the Oakland A’s in Game 1.

    Been a long …

  5. Nikita Kucherov's start something to see

    Yes, the Lightning lost in a shootout at New Jersey on Tuesday night, blowing a 4-3 lead late in the game.
