The Southern Jaguars and the Tulane Green Wave meet in college basketball action from Devlin Fieldhouse on Saturday afternoon.
The Southern Jaguars come into this game on the heels of their 72-60 loss to Louisville in their last game. Brion Whitley led the way with 17 points on 6 of 11 shooting with a pair of steals while Tyrone Lyons added 11 points and Jaylen Saddler had 10 points with a team-high 4 assists to cap off the scoring in double figures for the Jaguars in the losing effort. Damien Sears also added a team-high 14 rebounds as well for Southern in the defeat. As a team, Southern shot 30.9% from the field, 33.3% from three and 58.8% from the foul line in the loss.
The Tulane Green Wave will look to build off of their 70-67 win over Southeastern Louisiana in their last game. Jalen Cook led the Green Wave with 28 points on 11 of 18 shooting with a team-high 4 assists while Jaylen Forbes and Tylan Pope each had 11 points with Pope adding a team-high 13 rebounds for the double-double while Forbes hit 3 threes. Devon Baker added 10 points with 5 rebounds to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for Tulane in the victory. As a team, Tulane shot 45.2% from the field, 44.4% from three and 50% from the foul line.
Southern is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 Saturday games. Tulane is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the under is 11-4 in their last 15 games following a win.
This is a bit of a tough one to call, but I’m going to lean the way of the Jaguars here. Tulane’s the more name-recognizable team, but the Jaguars had a tough opener against a decent Louisville team and should shoot better than they did in that game here. Tulane narrowly got by Southeastern Louisiana and I think the Jaguars could give the Green Wave a run here. Give me the Jaguars.
