USF women vs. No. 21 DePaul

When/where: 7; USF Rec Center, Tampa

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: DePaul 15-3, 3-1 Big East; USF 10-8, 2-2

Notable: USF has opened Big East play with two road wins and two home losses, both to ranked opponents. … DePaul averages 8.5 3-pointers and 77 points, so there should be plenty of scoring. … USF is getting 16.3 points per game from guard Inga Orekhova, who joined the team three games ago, pushing her ahead of guard Jasmine Wynne (16.1) for the team scoring lead. … DePaul has guard Anna Martin, who is scoring 19 per game and hitting 46 percent of her 3s; Keisha Hampton is at 16.6 points per game. … DePaul lost 60-52 at a Providence team comparable to USF, but the Bulls have to keep up with the Blue Demons shot for shot. … Win here, and USF has matched its total of conference wins from all of 2010-11.
