Located in Tampa, Florida, the University of South Florida is a member of the American Athletic Conference and competes in Division I of the NCAA. The Bulls wear the colors of green and gold and Rocky the Bull, an anthropomorphized bull, is the team’s official mascot.

It has played in the American since 2013 and prior to that year competed in the Big East between 2005 and 2012.
The men’s basketball team has had spurts of success over the last three decades. Playing home games in USF Sun Dome, the Bulls have appeared in the NCAA Tournament three times since 1990 and went as far as the third round in in 2012, though ultimately lost to the lower-ranked Ohio Bobcats 56-62 that year. Other NCAA Tournament appearances came in 1992 and 1990. Additionally, USF has appeared in the National Invitational Tournament eight times and made it to the quarterfinal round in 1995. The university owns a cumulative NIT record of 4-8, losing in the opening round over its last three appearances in 2000, 2002 and 2010.
The basketball program also boasts a notable cast of alumni that moved on to the NBA. Among that list is Gary Alexander, Chucky Atkins, Dominique Jones and Curtis Kitchen. The team won the Sun Belt Tournament in 1990 and was Conference USA division champions during the 2000-2001 regular season.
