Tulane vs. Memphis key players to watch
Kevin Cross: In their upset win against Memphis, Kevin Cross dominated from start to finish, scoring 21 points while adding on seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, and two blocks. If he can put up another strong performance like that against the Tigers, Tulane is going to find themselves on the precipice of another upset win.
Jahvon Quinerly: If the Tigers want to snap out of their funk, they need to get David Jones some help. Jahvon Quinerly is the most likely candidate as he's the team's second leading scorer, putting up 13.4 points per game and 4.9 assists. If he can step up today, the Tigers will have a chance to avenge it's loss to Tulane.
Tulane vs. Memphis prediction and pick
I don't know if Tulane can pull off yet another upset against Memphis, but I'm going to bet on the Green Wave to at least cover the spread as 8.5-point underdogs.
It has to be pointed out how much Memphis has struggled at home. The Tigers' effective field goal percentage drops 4% when playing on their home court and they're now 0-7 against the spread in their last seven home games.
Tulane also deserves some major respect for ranking 21st in the country in effective field goal percentage. Those offensive numbers alone are enough for me to back Tulane getting 8.5-points on the road.
