New Jersey guard commits to USF basketball

TAMPA —USF picked up its second oral commitment for women's basketball, as Tiffany Conner, a 5-foot-10 guard from Teaneck, N.J., accepted a scholarship offer to play for Jose Fernandez.

"I just told him I'm going to be a Bull," said Conner, a defensive standout who chose USF over offers from nearby Hofstra, Hampton and Towson. ". Playing in the Big East has always been one of my dreams."

Commitments are non-binding until the early signing period, which begins Nov. 12.

SEC MEN PREDICTIONS: Tennessee is an overwhelming media choice to beat out Florida for the SEC East and overall SEC title. The Vols got 23 votes to win it all, followed by the Gators (five) and Kentucky (two). UF is picked second in the East. Alabama and LSU are co-favorites in the West.

CLEMSON: Freshman center Catalin Baciu was suspended by the NCAA for five games because he played on a pro team in Romania five years ago.


Connecticut: After the Huskies were 1-for-4 on field goals in a loss to Rutgers, redshirt freshman kicker David Teggart will replace senior Tony Ciaravino.

MICHIGAN: Quarterback Steven Threet is expected to play Saturday against Michigan State despite a bruised right elbow.
