Current Records: Tulsa 8-16; South Florida 7-18

What to Know

The Tulsa Golden Hurricane are 9-0 against the South Florida Bulls since March of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Saturday. The Golden Hurricane and South Florida will face off in an American Athletic battle at noon ET at Yuengling Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

Tulsa came up short against the UCF Knights on Monday, falling 76-67. Tulsa's defeat came about despite a quality game from forward Jeriah Horne, who had 18 points along with eight rebounds.

Meanwhile, South Florida came up short against the East Carolina Pirates on Thursday, falling 65-57. Guard Caleb Murphy had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with only eight points on 4-for-11 shooting in his 29 minutes on the court.

Tulsa is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Air Force Falcons Nov. 13 easily too and instead slipped up with a 59-58. In other words, don't count South Florida out just yet.
