The Tulane Green Wave are still looking for their first victory since December 17. The Tulane Green Wave are averaging 66.3 points on 41.2 percent shooting and allowing 75.6 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Caleb Daniels is averaging 15.5 points and three assists while Samir Sehic is averaging 11.2 points and 7.8 rebounds.

The Tulane Green Wave are shooting 30.8 percent from beyond the arc and 67.7 percent from the free throw line. The Tulane Green Wave are allowing 32.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.4 rebounds per game. The Tulane Green Wave have lost their last five home games.
The Cougars are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 road games, 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 vs. American Athletic Conference and 35-17-2 ATS in their last 54 games overall. The Green Wave are 6-19-1 ATS in their last 26 Sunday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. The Cougars are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Tulane and the road team is 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Green Wave last 4 overall. The under is 7-3 in Cougars last 10 road games.
The Houston Cougars have really flexed their muscle during their nine-game winning streak and beat Tulane last year by 31 points. The Tulane Green Wave have shown very little progress during this losing stretch, but they're losing at home by an average of just 5.5 points, so it's not like they don't compete sometimes. Also, Tulane is 7-4 ATS at home this season. This is the Tulane's season, as there's nothing left to play for at this point. If the Green Wave can't get up for this one, they can't get up for anything. I'll take a shot with the boatload of points.
