. TODAY

USF women vs. Detroit Mercy

When/where: 2; Sun Dome, Tampa

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: USF 10-2, Detroit Mercy 7-4

Notable: A victory would make Jose Fernandez the first USF basketball coach, men's or women's, to reach 200 for his career as the Bulls wrap up their nonconference schedule. … USF is coming off scoring 100 in a rout of Florida A&M, and one-tenth of a point separates twin guards Andrell and Andrea Smith for the team scoring lead, with Andrell at 16.9 and Andrea at 16.8. … Detroit Mercy has the nation's leading scorer in forward Shareta Brown, who averages 26.3 points. … The Titans have won their past three by a combined 128 points, albeit against lesser competition; they gave No. 6 Penn State a scare with an eight-point loss and lost to Michigan by only eight as well.
