Having to play their NCAA tournament game on the opponent's home floor was obviously a huge disadvantage for USF. But the Bulls overcame and won a thriller Saturday, 71-70 at Texas Tech.
It's the first win for the women's basketball program ever in the tournament and just the school's second trip.
USF will take on No. 2 seed California Monday night back in Lubbock.
The Bulls made five of their last six free throws after three-point specialist Inga Orekhova hit a critical 3 to tie the game with 1:09 left. She led the Bulls with 20 points.

USF football players witnessed what sets Willie Taggart apart from other coaches in the first spring practice. In one end zone, Taggart had speakers blasting music pumping up the team creating an upbeat atmosphere.
"This is just how we do it," Taggart said in the Tampa Bay Times. "I want the guys excited and fired up."
Taggart has created a utility council, a core group of 10 players consisting of one freshman, three sophomores, three juniors, and three seniors. The Bulls coaches selected these ten players by the following criteria: Great football player, great student, and great character.
"It's their football team," Taggart said. "They're the voice of the football team."
The utility council will take care of issues and will be the voice of the team.
USF has 15 practices left before their spring game on April 13.
