After the past few days of covering the Big East tournament, I know far better than to get my hopes up.

However, it looks as if USF and UConn could be playing within the hour as the grounds crew has taken the tarp off of the infield at Bright House Field.

The outfield still looks flooded, as several substantial puddles have accumulated in the grass directly behind the infield. That will certainly be a factor in tonight’s matchup.

I’ll be on shortly with an official start time.
