College basketball preview: USF Bulls at Seton Hall Pirates


USF at Seton Hall

When/where: 7; Prudential Center, Newark, N.J.

TV/radio: ESPNU; 98.7-FM, 1010-AM

Records: USF 10-7, 1-4 Big East; Seton Hall 12-6, 1-4

Notable: USF, coming off a 61-58 home win against Georgetown on Saturday, faces the Big East's most prolific 3-point shooting attack. The Pirates are hitting 8.3 3-pointers per game and guards Fuquan Edwin and Brandon Mobley both shoot a league-best 50 percent beyond the arc, but USF has the Big East's No. 2 3-point defense. … Seton Hall's top rebounder is former USF signee Eugene Teague (12.1 ppg, 8.5 rpg), who did not qualify academically in 2008. … USF backup guard Jawanza Poland is close to the team lead in scoring. He had 15 against the Hoyas.
