WHEN/WHERE: 2; Sun Dome, Tampa.
BROADCAST: Audio broadcast at gousfbulls.com.
RECORDS: Cincinnati (5-8, 0-1 Conference USA); USF (11-4, 1-0).
COACHES: Cincinnati _ Laurie Pirtie (274-264, 19th season; 357-280, 23rd overall); USF _ Jose Fernandez (50-76, fifth season).
NOTES: The Bulls are coming off an impressive win Friday against Louisville to open the conference season, but they face the Bearcats without starting center Nalini Miller (strained left hamstring). USF hopes to start junior Sharon Cambridge, who has played in two games because of an ankle injury. Another frontcourt starter, junior Ezria Parsons, sustained a concussion Friday and is a gametime decision. Look for freshman ChiChi Okpaleke, a Tampa Bay Tech graduate, to play more as those three recover. Cincinnati leads the series 10-2, but the Bearcats lost their conference opener by 18 to an Alabama-Birmingham team that came in 3-10. Center Anne Stephens (11.3) and guard Toni Slaughter (11.0) are the only Bearcats scoring in double figures. USF is led by sophomore forward Jessica Dickson (15.2 points), but senior guard Anedra Gilmore had a career-high 22 on Friday, raising her average to 11.1. It is USF's second game in a row against a future Big East opponent.
