The UTSA Roadrunners and the South Florida Bulls will face off in an American Athletic battle at 4:00 p.m. ET on Saturday at Yuengling Center.

The oddsmakers set the bar high, but UTSA and Tulane didn't disappoint and broke past the 166.5 point over/under on Wednesday. Not to be outdone by the Green Wave, the Roadrunners got past the Green Wave on a last-second jump shot. Having run the score up that high, both teams might be doing some extra defensive drills very soon.

Carlton Linguard Jr. was the offensive standout of the match as he shot 6-for-10 from deep and dropped a double-double on 31 points and ten rebounds. That's the first time this season that he scored 30 or more points. Trey Edmonds was another key contributor, scoring 11 points along with eight rebounds.

South Florida's success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but Kasean Pryor led the charge by shooting 4-for-5 from long range and dropping a double-double on 20 points and ten rebounds.
