The South Florida Bulls head to Madison Square Garden as the No. 6 seed in the Big East Conference Tournament.

The South Florida Bulls head to New York City this weekend squarely on the bubble, looking to add a Big East Conference tournament win or two to bolster their resume and secure an invitation to the dance. The Bulls dropped their final game of the season on Saturday, losing a crucial home game to a fellow Big East bubbler in West Virginia. A win over the Mountaineers would have given USF a double bye, but instead they will just get a first round bye on Tuesday. The Bulls quest will begin late Wednesday night as they play the nightcap against the winner of no.11-seeded Rutgers and no.14-seeded Villanova.
