Texas Southern has won three of their last four games and they have held their opponents to 65 and 62 points in their last two wins. The Tigers have won six of their last eight games and they finished tied for third in the SWAC regular season. Texas Southern did play a very tough non-conference schedule, which included games against New Mexico, Virginia, Creighton, Drake, and Purdue. The Tigers are scoring 70.2 points per game with 35.3 rebounds per game and 11.7 assists per game, while allowing 70.8 points against per game this year. PJ Henry is averaging 14.9 points per game, 2.8 rebounds per game, and 2.4 assists per game.

Tarleton State Preview

The Tarleton State Texans are 23-9 (16-4) this year after they lost to UT Arlington by a score of 87-84 in the WAC tournament. Tarleton State has lost two of their last three games, but they played great in conference play this season. The Texans have won 11 of their last 13 games, scoring at least 75 points in 10 of those games. Tarleton State doesn’t have many decent wins out of conference, but they did play Virginia, Tennessee, and Bradley.

Texas Southern vs Tarleton State Betting Prediction

Texas Southern was able to make it to the championship game of their conference tournament, but they came up just short and will have to settle for a berth in the CIT. Tarleton State picked up two losses late in the season, but they have been red hot over the last five weeks. Tarleton State does have the better numbers on the season, but Texas Southern played a gauntlet of a non-conference schedule, so their numbers are slightly skewed. I do like Tarleton State’s ability to score and we saw them put up 75+ points pretty consistently down the stretch. I think the Texans run away with this one.
