The Memphis Tigers (19-9, CONF 8-7) and Tulane Green Wave (12-16, CONF 4-12) face off in an AAC showdown at Fogelman Arena in Devlin Fieldhouse. Memphis knocked off Tulane 84-73 earlier this season. 

Memphis probably won’t be playing in the NCAA tournament but if they were to lose this game that would be the final nail in the coffin. 

Coming into this game Memphis has won two of the last three games, with the loss coming in their last game against SMU. In that game against SMU, Memphis could only score 53 points and that led to a loss.

On the road this season Memphis has a 4-5 record and the offense has let them down a lot in a big way. Memphis is averaging only 61.1 points while shooting only 38.8 percent from the field. Forward Precious Achiuwa is the star of the Tigers averaging 15.3 points and shooting almost 50 percent from the field.

Tulane come into this game having won two of the last three games, but before that they had lost seven games straight. Each of the last three games Tulane has covered the spread.

At home this season Tulane has a 7-5 record and the biggest difference is their offense is better. At home this season the Green Wave  are averaging 70.4 points per game while the defense is giving up 67.6 points. 

Tulane is led by Teshaun Hightower who is averaging 15.8 points while shooting 41.8 percent from the field. Each of the last three games, Hightower has scored at least 18 points. If Hightower can have a big game, the Green Wave should be in good shape to come away with a win. 

The under is 12-3-1 in the Tigers last 16 road games. The over is 7-1 in Tulane’s last eight games overall. Memphis is 10-4 against the spread in the last 14 meetings in Tulane. 

Tulane is playing better basketball as of late, and they are getting no respect with this game. Look for the Tulane offense to find success led by Teshaun Hightower and that will be enough for them to cover the spread.
