After an exciting 90-86 win over No. 24 ranked Florida Atlantic in front of a record-breaking home crowd and a national television audience on ESPN, the first-place South Florida Bulls (19-5, 12-1) are in San Antonio tonight to face UTSA (8-18, 2-11). USF hopes to bring their winning streak in the AAC to an even dozen games as they look to get their 20th victory of the season tonight with tip-off at 8 p.m.

While UTSA is at the bottom of the AAC standings you can bet they will be gunning to knock off the top team in the conference and end the Bulls winning streak. So, there will be no letting up when USF takes the court tonight in San Antonio.
