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.
