STORY LINES

THE LITTLE GUY: South Florida point guard Anthony Collins is one of the premier facilitators in the country. UConn coach Kevin Ollie said he's "never seen anyone dribble as low as he does. (Collins) is able to get in the thick of the defense and find their shooters and make plays so we're going to have to contain him," Ollie said.

USF OFFENSE: At times, it's been tough to watch. The Bulls' leading scorers -- post players Victor Rudd and Toarlyn Fitzpatrick -- are respectively shooting 37.7 percent and 39.2 percent, respectively. As a team, South Florida converts on just 40.5 percent of its field goal attempts, which ranks 300th nationally.

HUSKIES HEALTHY: Ryan Boatright (twisted ankle) was banged up following the Providence win, and Tyler Olander was still battling flu symptoms. Both are OK Ollie said. There should be no issue with either for this afternoon's game.
