published January 11, 2002

WHEN/WHERE: 7; Sun Dome, Tampa.

RECORDS: Marquette 7-7, 0-1 C-USA; South Florida 11-3, 1-0.

COACHES: Marquette -- Terri Mitchell (106-55, fifth season). USF -- Jose Fernandez (15-27, second season).

KEY PLAYERS: Marquette -- Rachel Klug, F, 6-1 Jr. (13.1 ppg, 6.4 rpg); Kristi Johnson, PG, 5-6 Sr. (6.1 ppg, 3.1 apg). South Florida -- Aiya Shepard, SG, 5-7 Jr. (13.8 ppg, 4.3 spg); Sonia Cotton, F, 5-11 Jr. (16.3 ppg, 8.1 rpg); Alana Tanksley, G/F, 5-8 Fr. (11.6 ppg, 4.2 rpg).

NOTES: The USF women would like to match the men's 2-0 conference record with a win over the Golden Eagles, who won 64-55 in Tampa last season and are 7-0 against USF. Another C-USA win would exceed last season's total. ... USF hasn't been this healthy since the opener. C/F Sarah Lochmann (stress fracture) is almost 100 percent, and Shepherd, who has played with a badly sprained ankle for three weeks, also is nearly 100 percent. Freshman Jen Kline remains out with a stress fracture. ... Marquette has seven players 6 feet or taller; junior Ashley Teets and freshman Allison AuBuchon are USF's lone 6-footers. ... The Bulls, as always, will push the pace, while Marquette, which defeated No. 20 Colorado State 56-52 on Jan. 2, will slow it down. ... USF leads the conference with 82.7 points a game. ... This is the Bulls' second-best 14-game start in school history (12-2, 1976-77).
