The Memphis Tigers and Houston Cougars meet Sunday in the college basketball AAC Tournament Final at the Dickies Arena. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
The Memphis Tigers are averaging 79.5 points on 48.1 percent shooting and allowing 72.6 points on 40.9 percent shooting. Kendrick Davis is averaging 21.8 points and 3.6 rebounds, while DeAndre Williams is averaging 17.6 points and 7.8 rebounds. Alex Lomax is dishing 3.3 assists and Keonte Kennedy is grabbing 2.6 rebounds. The Memphis Tigers are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 74.1 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Tigers are allowing 31.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.9 rebounds per game.
The Houston Cougars are averaging 76 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 56.5 points on 36.5 percent shooting. Marcus Sasser is averaging 17.5 points 2.9 rebounds, while Jarace Walker is averaging 10.9 points and 6.7 rebounds. J’Wan Roberts is the third double-digit scorer and Tramon Mark is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Houston Cougars are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 72.2 percent from the free throw line. The Houston Cougars are allowing 28 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.8 rebounds per game.
The Memphis Tigers are talented enough to where they’re worth a look in the underdog role, as they have the horses to hang around and possibly steal it. However, we saw Houston go into Memphis last week and win. This is pretty much a home game for the Houston Cougars, and they’ve been pretty much a buzz saw all season. I’d need more points to consider Memphis. This line is reasonable. Give me Houston and the chalk.
