NOTES: This is a contest between teams in desperate need of a win. South Florida is 2-8 after Thursday night's home loss to Kansas State. The Bulls have lost four consecutive games and seven of their last eight. Towson has not won and is coming off a loss to Stetson Thursday night. It's the worst start in school history for the Tigers. South Florida opens Conference USA play Tuesday. The Tigers lost two games by more than 40 points (83-34 to Vermont and 91-47 to George Washington) and three by 18 or more. Despite its record, USF has played its opponents close in many cases, including a three-point overtime loss to Western Kentucky on Dec. 18.
