Women's college basketball preview: USF vs. N.C. Central


USF women vs. N.C. Central

When/where: 7; Sun Dome, Tampa

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: N.C. Central 1-1, USF 3-1

Notable: After a solid — and scary — weekend road trip to Bradley, the Bulls return home for what projects as a tuneup for Sunday's clash against Clemson. … In the hours before Sunday afternoon's game at Bradley in Peoria, Ill., USF's coaches and players were sequestered in the middle of their hotel while tornadoes swept through nearby Washington. The weather passed quickly, Bulls coach Jose Fernandez said, and the game wasn't delayed. … After a rough start to the season, Bulls senior G Inga Orekhova found her touch (20 points on 7-of-13 shooting, nine rebounds) in Sunday's 87-63 win.

    Lightning Strikes

    BRANDON — No one is engraving the Stanley Cup. No one has begun stuffing the league MVP ballot box for Nikita Kucherov.

    The Lightning, with a win tonight, would match the best start in franchise history, 7-1-1 in the 2003-04 Cup season.
