The story: The women’s basketball team wraps up a short home stand tonight against Providence before heading out on a tough road trip. USF will travel to Connecticut and Notre Dame next week. The Bulls need to get a win over Providence to bring their record back to .500 in conference play. USF showed balance in Wednesday night’s victory over Syracuse and will be looking for that same balance against the Friars. Four players scored in double digits, and the Bulls got 11 points off the bench.
Jessica Dickson, the nation’s leading scorer with 25.1 points per game, stands alone in third place all time on USF’s scoring list with 1,524 points. She’ll be looking to bounce back after shooting three for 14 from the field in the second half against Syracuse.
Keep an eye on: Providence junior forward Shauna Snyder leads the team in scoring with 14.6 points per game, and senior forward Gayle Nwafili leads the team in rebounding with 8.9 per game.
The Bulls will need to contain Providence’s two forwards to be successful.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
