USF at No. 1 Connecticut
When/where: 7; XL Center, Hartford, Conn.
TV/radio: BHSN; 1010-AM
Records: USF 9-4, UConn 12-0
Notable: A trip to Connecticut isn't a nice way to open Big East play: The Huskies beat the Bulls twice last season by a combined 83 points, and their average margin of victory this season is 42.6. … Led by All-Americans Maya Moore (19.2 ppg) and Tina Charles (17.3 ppg, 8.4 rpg), the Huskies are averaging 16 more rebounds and 14 more assists than their opponents while forcing 23 turnovers a game. That's not good for USF, which has more turnovers than its opponents. … Bulls C Jessica Lawson is averaging 14.9 points and 11 rebounds. If she gets in foul trouble, this could get lopsided quickly.
