NEED TO KNOW: No.9 South Florida will look to maintain its position in the Big East Red division as it faces DePaul, which sits two points behind the Bulls in the standings.
The Bulls enter on a four-game winning streak after coming back from a halftime deficit to defeat Villanova 3-1 on Saturday night. Hasani Sinclair found the net in that contest, his fourth goal of the season. Sinclair is now second on the team in goals, trailing only Bernardo Anor, who has five despite being out of action since the Bulls game against FAU on Oct. 14.
DePaul rebounded from a two-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory against Syracuse on Saturday night, the only home game for the Blue Demons in their final six regular season contests. After opening the season with a pair of victories against ranked opponents, the Blue Demons have now lost three straight against ranked opposition, including a 6-0 drubbing by Louisville on Oct.3. Alex Mangan and Steffen Vroom lead the Blue Demons with seven goals apiece, but the Bulls may be able to take advantage of a defense that has given up almost two goals per game for the season.
