USF at Seton Hall

When/where: 7:30; Prudential Center, Newark, N.J.

TV/radio: Catch 47; 1250-AM

Records: USF 10-7, 1-3 Big East; Seton Hall 10-6, 0-3

Notable: Seton Hall has won all three meetings, and we'll say it again: USF is still seeking its first conference road win in three seasons in the Big East. ... Seton Hall hasn't been dominant at home, needing overtime to beat Monmouth, Robert Morris and James Madison and losing to N.C. State. ... Seton Hall is second in the Big East in scoring (82.2 ppg) and worst in points allowed (79.6). The Pirates are worst in rebounding defense and second-worst in 3-point percentage. ... Bulls center Kentrell Gransberry has stepped up his play in the Big East, averaging 20.5 points and 11.8 rebounds in four games to raise his averages to a team-high 16.3 and 11.2
