The South Florida Bulls (12-9, 5-3 Big East) host the Providence Friars (12-9, 1-7) Sunday afternoon, looking to maintain their home court dominance this season. The Bulls are 10-1 at home this year, with their only defeat coming at the hands of the Connecticut Huskies, 60-57. Providence, on the other hand, has yet to win a Big East road game.
South Florida is coming off a 67-47 loss at the hands of Marquette Tuesday night, dropping them into a tie for fourth place in the conference with Notre Dame. The Bulls plodding style of play means they have both the worst scoring offense in the Big East (61.2 points per game) and the league's best scoring defense (58.1 ppg).
Providence's most recent outing was a 86-74 loss to Pittsburgh on Wednesday, the third loss in a row and seventh defeat in the past eight games for the Friars.
This will be just the 11th matchup between South Florida and Providence, with the Friars holding a 6-4 advantage in the all-time series.
