The Tulane Green Wave will be hoping to halt a five-game losing streak when they host the Memphis Tigers at Devlin Fieldhouse on Sunday evening. Tulane’s woes most recently continued with a setback against South Florida earlier this week. The Tigers are 5-1 in their last six contests following Thursday’s victory over East Carolina.

Scoring binge

Memphis looks to correct some issues on the glass and avoid a letdown when it visits a struggling Tulane side on Sunday for an American Athletic Conference contest. The Tigers recovered from their first AAC loss to 15th-ranked Houston by defeating East Carolina 78-72 on Thursday. They lead the conference in scoring (84.1 points per game) and Tulane is last (66.6 ppg).

“We have to go into this game and play tough,” head coach Penny Hardaway said. “It’s not about Xs and Os. It’s not about who starts or who doesn’t start…. Whatever time you’re on the floor, it’s all-out.”

Senior forward Kyvon Davenport leads the team in scoring (15.3 ppg) after averaging 18.7 ppg in three AAC games on 18-of-33 shooting from the field. He is adding a team-best 7.8 rebounds per contest. Senior guard Jeremiah Martin averages 14.4 ppg to go along with team highs of 3.8 assists and 2.2 steals per outing. Freshman guard Tyler Harris (13.6 ppg) is the top threat from beyond the arc with 42 daggers from long range. Senior guard Kareem Brewton Jr. is averaging 15.7 ppg on 17-of-22 from the field in AAC competition, well above his season mark of 8.9 ppg.

Won’t take ’em lightly

The Green Wave have dropped five straight games since their last victory against Texas Southern on Dec. 17 and shot 38.6 percent from the field while turning the ball over 26 times in a 66-48 loss at South Florida on Wednesday. They dropped their first three conference games by a total of 59 points, with the closes of those coming at home against SMU (74-65). Still, Memphis isn’t planning on relaxing against the last-place Green Wave–especially not after allowing 33 offensive rebounds in the last two games.

“I’m never going to take a team for granted,” Hardaway assured. “I’ve been watching Tulane since the beginning of the season…. Their record doesn’t indicate how well they are going to play, especially at home.”

Tulane sophomore guard Caleb Daniels, the team’s leading scorer (15.7 ppg), missed Wednesday’s game with an undisclosed ailment and is considered day-to-day. Senior guard Jordan Cornish (11.9 ppg) struggled against USF, going 1-of-7 from the field with nine turnovers. Freshman backcourt mate Kevin Zhang scored 11–more than he totaled in his previous five games. Junior forward Samir Sehic (11.8 ppg, team-high 8.1 rpg) has been the most dependable player of late, recording three double-doubles in the last four games after scoring 14 with 12 boards on Wednesday.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Tigers have won the last five meetings, including a 68-63 victory at Tulane last season with 22 points from Martin. More of the same should continue, as this just isn’t a good matchup for the Green Wave. Their scoring deficiencies are such that they will be unable to keep up with the high-powered, high-flying, up-tempo Tigers. Memphis is 7-2 ATS in its last nine trips to Tulane. The Green Wave are 9-25-2 ATS in their last 36 at home against opponents with losing road records, 0-8 ATS in their last eight after scoring less than 50 points in their previous outing, and 0-5 ATS in the last five meetings between the two teams.

Prediction: Memphis Tigers

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Memphis freshman guard Antwann Jones has scored in double-figures five times in the last six games after doing so once in the first 10 outings this season. Tulane 7’0” freshman center Buay Koka, from South Sudan, had eight points and a season-high five rebounds against South Florida. The over is 9-2 in the Tigers’ last 11 overall, 7-3 in their last 10 on the road, 5-1 in their last six on the road against opponents with losing home records, 12-4 in their last 16 against the American Athletic Conference, and 6-1 in their last seven following a win. It is also 19-7 in the Green Wave’s last 26 at home against opponents with losing road records and 26-12 in their last 38 against the American Athletic Conference. Look for this one to go over the total.
