UAB vs. Tulane Prediction

I’m on UAB here. The Green Wave have some solid scoring depth within their ranks, but they haven’t been able to slow opposing teams down all year long because Tulane has one of the worst defensive ratings in the conference. UAB can put points on the board, but they’re far more consistent on defense and I think they find a way to get the job done in this one. Give me the free bucket with the Blazers here.
