The Tulane Green Wave are a young basketball team that won't be scared of Oklahoma considering it played North Carolina for their season opener. Tulane actually held its own for what its worth and have shown to have some solid depth on the offensive end. Oklahoma is obviously the better team here, but there's value with Tulane and the points given what we've seen in the first two games from the Green Wave.
