Women's college basketball preview: USF Bulls vs. Seton Hall Pirates

USF women vs. Seton Hall

When/where: 7; USF Rec Center, Tampa

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: Seton Hall 7-13, 0-6 Big East; USF 11-9, 3-3

Notable: USF won at Seton Hall 68-49 just 11 days ago, and the Bulls need to stockpile wins to keep their hopes of postseason play going with tougher competition ahead, like a trip to Connecticut on Saturday. … Guard Inga Orekhova has hit 43 percent of her 3-point attempts (20-for-46). Despite playing in only five of USF's 20 games, she's just four 3-pointers off the team lead (Andrell Smith, 24-for-85). … The Bulls have gotten improved play from junior forward Tiffany Conner, who is close to catching guard Jasmine Wynne for the team's rebounding lead, averaging 5.6. … USF held Seton Hall to 27 percent shooting in the first meeting, with three Pirates starters failing to hit a field goal.

    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.
