Women's college basketball: USF Bulls vs. Detroit Mercy Titans, 2 p.m. Monday


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.

  1. Jones: Koetter-Winston exchange highlights latest 'Hard Knocks'


    There are certain things that make HBO's Hard Knocks must-see television.

  2. Trevor Plouffe is DFA'd by Rays, Kittredge recalled for now


    INF Trevor Plouffe didn't do much with the opportunity the Rays gave him, and time ran out Tuesday when he was designated for assignment after the game.

    Plouffe hit just .178, with one homer and two RBIs, in 31 games for the Rays, his primary playing time from starting at first or third against lefties.

  3. Rays journal: Offense shows signs of waking up in win over Blue Jays (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say the Rays are out of it, but scoring a half-dozen runs in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays was another promising sign.

  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Tuesday's Rays-Blue Jays game

    The Heater

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off right knee surgery, often takes it easy on the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single, finishing with three more hits.

  5. Rays are full of ideas they'd like to share when commissioner visits

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Commissioner Rob Manfred is coming to the Trop today. Hmm. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg will be there to greet him. Hmmmm. And they have a scheduled joint media session. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.
