Caleb Daniels is averaging 16.7 points and 2.7 assists while Jordan Cornish is averaging 12.3 points and 3.5 rebounds.

The Alabama A&M Bulldogs have done nothing right this season and have lost games in blowout fashion nearly every time they've taken the court. The Tulane Green Wave have had struggles of their own, but they have some decent scoring depth and should be able to get the job done against a brutal, brutal opponent. The only option here is Tulane and the chalk or pass.

Tulane Green Wave -14
