The Houston Cougars will play the Tulane Green Wave in this college basketball matchup scheduled for Saturday night in the Semifinal round of the American Tournament.
The Houston Cougars are coming off of a 13 point win against Cincinnati in their last time out. Fabian White had 18 to lead Houston. Jamal Shead had 15 points and seven assists for the Cougars, and Kyler Edwards had 12 points in the win.
The Houston Cougars are led in scoring by Kyler Edwards who averages 13.6 points and 5.9 rebounds for this team. Fabian White averages 13.2 points and 5.9 rebounds a game for this team. Josh Carlton is the third leading scorer for the Cougars as he averages 11.8 points a game for this team.
The Houston Cougars are averaging 75.9 points per game on 46.7% shooting from the field. They are allowing opponents to score 58.9 points per game. They are shooting 66.3% from the free throw line.
The Tulane Green Wave are coming off of a 9 point win against Temple in their last time out. Kevin Cross had 18 points and nine rebounds to lead the Green Wave. DeVon Baker added 15 points and Jaylen Forbes had 12 points and nine rebounds for Tulane. Sion James had nine points, nine assists and five blocks in the win.
The Tulane Green Wave are led in scoring by Jalen Cook who averages 18 points and 2.5 rebounds for this team. Jaylen Forbes averages 16.6 points and 5.2 rebounds a night. Kevin Cross is the third leading scorer for the Green Wave as he averages 13.8 points a game for this team.
The Green Wave are averaging 73.6 points per game on 43.9% shooting from the field. They are allowing opponents to score 71.6 points per game. They are shooting 75.7% from the free throw line.
Although the Cougars are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win, this feels like too many points. The Green Wave are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games and are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. Houston should easily win this one but I think the Green Wave can keep it close.
