USF vs. East Carolina

When/where: 7; Sun Dome

Radio: 1010-AM

Records: USF 6-8 (0-1 AAC), East Carolina 7-7 (0-1)

Notable: The Bulls, on a 1-7 skid, are coming off Wednesday's 83-49 shellacking at SMU in which coach Orlando Antigua questioned his team's competitive spirit. ECU's normally potent 3-point defense disappeared in Wednesday's 67-59 loss to Tulane, which hit 8 of 13 from long range. Bulls 6-foot-8 sophomore Chris Perry is averaging nearly a double double (14.3 ppg, 9 rpg) in his past three games, but the Bulls are struggling (league-worst 28 percent) from 3-point range. Three Pirates average at least 13 points, but 6-3 FSU transfer Terry Whisnant (13.1 ppg) has led ECU in scoring in four of the past six games.
