Tulane Green Wave (2-0 SU) at Colorado State Rams (2-0 SU, 0-1 ATS)

Line: Colorado State -4

Total: 153

Tulane takes on Colorado State from Montego Bay in the 2017 Jamaica Classic. The Rams are coming off a 80-76 win over Winthrop on Tuesday, while Tulane destroyed Southeastern Louisiana, 89-66 at home on Monday.

Tulane tries to turn it around

There are not a lot of expectations for Tulane. This is a team with three returning starters from a 6-25 team that finished 3-165 in the American last season. The good news is that in wins over Southeastern Louisiana and Long Island University, the Green Wave is on fire from the field. They are hitting 54.9 percent of their shots for second-year and longtime NBA coach Mike Dunleavy.

In their win over Southeastern Louisiana, the Green Wave had five players hit double figures and six against LIU Brooklyn. Junior guard Melvin Frazier led the way against SE Louisiana with a career-high 25 points, four three-pointers and a career-high 10 rebounds. Ray Ona Embo scored 14 points, while Cameron Reynolds added 13. Vanderbilt transfer Samir Sehic added 12 points and six boards. Reynolds, a 6-8, 225-pound redshirt senior averaged 17.0 points last season and 6.8 rebounds.

Rams dominate second half against Winthrop

Winthrop is one of the better mid-major teams in the nation, so it was not a shocker that they got up by 14 points against Colorado State. But the Rams scored 48 points in the second half to wipe off that deficit and win by four. Point guard Prentiss Nixon led with 16 points, five boards and six assists. Sophomore Nico Carvacho had a double-double with 11 points and a career-high 20 rebounds. Junior Deion James added 14 points and five caroms off the bench.

The Rams return three players from a 24-12 team that finished 13-5 in the Mountain West last season, losing in the NIT second round. Nixon (13.2ppg) and 6-3 junior J.D. Paige (8.8pg, 2.5apg) are two productive guards that will have to produce even more for Colorado State this season. James was the NJCAA Division II Player of the Year last season at Pima Junior College in Arizona.

NCAAB Trends:

Tulane is:

  • 1-4-1 ATS last 6 neutral site games.
  • 1-4 ATS last 5 overall.

Colorado State is:

n/a

The Rams are the better team, even though they struggled with Winthrop, a very good Big South squad. In this neutral site game, I have to go with a team that has experience in winning.
