Tulane faces Temple on Friday, March 11th, 2022 at Dickies Arena for a college basketball AAC conference tournament matchup. 

Tulane ended the regular season with a 74-68 loss at SMU back on March 6th. Tulane did cover the spread in that game despite the losing result and moved to an impressive 17-10-0 against the spread this season. Tulane had a surprising season out of the AAC this year as the Green Wave finished in fifth place in the conference standings with a winning record of 10-8 in league play. Tulane was 13-14 overall this season and turns things around after a losing non-conference schedule. Tulane's leading scorer is one of the top players in the conference in G Jalen Cook. Cook scored 18.0 points per game and added 3.5 assists per game for the Green Wave as well this season. Tulane as a team has scored 73.6 points per game and has shot the ball at a 43.9% clip from the field. Tulane has also allowed 71.6 points per game to its opponents as well. 

Temple destroyed USF in its regular-season finale by the final score of 75-47 at home. That game was on March 6th and it wrapped up a very successful regular season for the Owls who finished in fourth place in the conference standings. Temple was 17-11 overall this season with a 10-7 conference record and a 17-11-0 against the spread record as well. Both of these teams had mixed expectations going into league play, but both have outperformed those expectations and look to play the role of cinderella in this AAC tournament. Temple's leading scorer is G Damian Dunn, who averaged 15.2 points per game during the regular season. Temple as a team has scored 67.0 points per game and has shot the ball at a 39.9% clip from the field. Temple has also allowed 66.4 points per game to its opponents as well.

Temple is a 1.5-point favorite and the total is set at 139. This spread is tight for a reason as although these teams play completely different styles of basketball, they have both found similar success. Temple got the better of Tulane the last time these teams faced each other at Tulane, 75-70. I could see a similar scoreline as even though Temple has had poor shooting numbers as a team, the Owls make up for it big-time on defense. Tulane's defense has not been reliable enough for me to take it here.
