The UTSA Roadrunners men's basketball team represents the University of Texas at San Antonio in San Antonio, Texas, US. Originally competing as an NCAA independent in 1981–82, the Roadrunners joined the Atlantic Sun Conference in 1986–87, and eventually joined the Southland Conference in 1991–92. The team is currently a member of Conference USA, and plays its game at the on-campus Convocation Center, and is coached by former NBA player Steve Henson.
UTSA has won four conference tournaments and three conference regular season championships. The team has made a total of four NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship appearances in its history. In the 2011 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship, the Roadrunners defeated SWAC Champion Alabama State, 70–61 in the opening round before falling in the second round to Ohio State. The victory over Alabama State marked the first time in school history that a Roadrunner team won an NCAA tournament game in any sport. As a relatively young Division I program, the team has made no other appearances in post-season tournaments.
UTSA joined the Western Athletic Conference on July 1, 2012.
