What to Know
The Tulsa Golden Hurricane have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the Tulane Green Wave and are hoping to record their first win since Feb. 25 of 2020. Tulsa and Tulane will face off in an American Athletic battle at 8 p.m. ET Saturday at Donald Reynolds Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'
The Golden Hurricane were close but no cigar on Wednesday as they fell 79-76 to the SMU Mustangs. Despite the loss, Tulsa got a solid performance out of forward Bryant Selebangue, who posted a double-double on 24 points and 14 rebounds. That makes it four consecutive games in which Selebangue has had at least ten rebounds.
Meanwhile, Tulane suffered a grim 80-60 defeat to the Houston Cougars on Tuesday. Tulane's defeat came about despite a quality game from guard Jaylen Forbes, who had 23 points.
Tulsa is expected to lose this next one by 8.5. They hadn't treated bettors all too well in the past (they are 3-13-1), but they might be worth taking a chance on now after beating the spread two games in a row.
The losses put the Golden Hurricane at 4-13 and the Green Wave at 12-6. Tulsa is 2-10 after losses this season, Tulane 5-0.
