The Bearcats shot 50.8% from the field, and assisted on 23 of their 33 field goals. They also hit 15 of their 17 free throws.

Memphis also dominated the glass, outrebounding Tulane 53-29. The one blemish for Memphis were the 26 turnovers committed.

Memphis is 9-10 ATS this season, 5-7 ATS after a win, and 2-2 ATS on the road. Cincinnati is 5-12 ATS this season, 1-7 ATS after a win, and 2-6 ATS at home. 

Cincinnati shot the ball well in their last game, but are only hitting 29.7% of their three point attempts this season. Memphis has been playing solid defense to close out the season, and will limit easy opportunities for the Bearcats. Cincinnati has given up at least 70 points in the last 3 games, so Memphis should be able to get back on track offensively. Give me the Tigers cover.
