Tonight: USF women at TCU

By GREG AUMAN, Times Staff Writer
Published January 14, 2005

WHEN/WHERE: 8; Daniel-Meyer Coliseum, Fort Worth, Texas.

RECORDS: USF (12-4, 2-0 C-USA), TCU (11-5, 2-0).

COACHES: USF - Jose Fernandez (51-76, fifth season); TCU - Jeff Mittie (121-54, sixth season; 272-114 overall).

NOTES: Five teams are 2-0 in Conference USA, and USF faces two on the road this weekend, at TCU tonight and Sunday at Houston. ... The Bulls seek their first 3-0 conference start, and a key is containing senior Sandora Irvin, a 6-foot-3 forward who leads the nation in rebounding (13.1) and is third in scoring (21.9). She leads C-USA with 4 blocks, with no other conference player getting more than 1.6. ... USF will be without starting center Nalini Miller, out with a hamstring injury, and will count on junior Sharon Cambridge and freshman ChiChi Okpaleke to fill in by committee. ... TCU has posted impressive wins against No. 3 Georgia and No. 13 Michigan State, but the Bulls have held their own against tough opponents on the road, playing Duke close for a half and taking three-time defending national champion Connecticut to overtime. ... USF has the third-fewest turnovers per game (12.4) in the nation. ... The last time the schools met, USF won 89-84 in double overtime in February against the then-No. 18 Horned Frogs, making them the highest-ranked team the Bulls have beaten. ... Even salvaging a split of these games would bode well for the Bulls, whose final four conference opponents are a combined 2-6.
