NEED TO KNOW: USF, picked to finish eighth in the Big East, is the lone member of the 15-team conference not to win a league game this season. The Bulls are coming off a dismal 64-38 road loss at Louisville, which rose from No. 3 to No. 1 in the Associated Press poll two days after the victory. It was USF’s second game against a top 10-ranked team in six days. … Rutgers leads the all-time series 6-5, but USF has won two of the last three meetings. … USF, on a three-game losing streak, is trying to avoid its third 0-4 Big East start in the past four seasons. … Against Louisville, USF employed its ninth different starting lineup of the season. … Rutgers has the Big East’s two best free-throw shooters in Myles Mack (92.5 percent) and Eli Carter (89.7).
