Texas Southern vs. Tarleton Prediction

I’m on Tarleton here. This is a big number and Texas Southern’s been no stranger to hanging around against teams they have to step up to, but the thing is that Tarleton is getting a home postseason game, and this is the final year where the Texans can’t qualify for the NCAA tournament. I think Billy Gillispie has this team trending in the right direction and I think getting this CIT game is the next step. I’m looking for the Texans to take it to Texas Southern here as the Texans were one of the best in the WAC this season, especially at home. Give me Tarleton here.
