USF Bulls eyeing shot at basketball history

This ain’t the same old South Florida.

The Bulls are reaching for glory.

The University of South Florida men’s basketball team is exploring uncharted territory in a historic season. Here’s a quick catch-up on their season thus far:

  • For the first time ever, the Bulls are now ranked No. 25 in the nation on the AP Poll and on the Coaches Poll.
  • The ranking comes on the back of 13 straight victories, with just one loss in the last 20 games.
  • With March Madness right around the corner, the historic run has ignited campus. The Yuengling Center sold out for the second game in a row last weekend — another first for the program.
  • An appearance at the tournament would be the program’s fourth in history, having previously made it in 1990, 1992, and 2012. The furthest the team has progressed is the Round of 32.

There’s only one home game left this season, and recent history would suggest it will be a sell-out. Get tickets while you can.
