Meanwhile, UTSA came into Saturday's match having lost seven straight, but that streak is now in the rearview. They sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 64-62 win over the Mean Green on Saturday.

UTSA's success was spearheaded by the efforts of Carlton Linguard Jr., who scored 13 points along with six rebounds and three blocks, and Jordan Ivy-Curry, who scored 21 points along with eight rebounds and three steals.

Fans should be in for an exciting game on Wednesday as both teams are among the highest scoring teams in the league right now. Tulsa hasn't had any problem running up the score this season, having averaged 75 points per game. However, it's not like UTSA struggles in that department as they've been averaging 77.6 points per game. With both teams so easily able to put up points, the only question left is who can run the score up higher.

Everything came up roses for Tulsa against the Roadrunners in their previous matchup back in January as the squad secured a 107-78 win. The rematch might be a little tougher for Tulsa since the team won't have the home-court advantage this time around. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
