Pick

Tulane played poorly over the last month of the regular season, but they have won three games in a row and have scored at least 81 points in each game. Memphis has won four of their last five games and seven of their last nine. Tulane won both regular season meetings by scores of 96-89 and 90-89. Both of these teams are very high scoring and neither team plays very good defense, so we should be in for a high scoring game. This is a lot of points to give Tulane, especially with them winning the two prior meetings. I like Tulane here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
