UConn Huskies (9-7) vs. Tulane Green Waves (11-5)

NCAAB: Saturday January 13th 2018, 1:00 PM EST Time

LINE: Tulane -4

Coming off a strong performance in a 62-53 win over UCF on Wednesday night, the UConn men’s basketball team heads to New Orleans for a Saturday afternoon matchup with Tulane at the Devlin Fieldhouse in American Athletic Conference play.

UConn Ready To Make It Three Straight

Two straight wins in league play lead the Huskies into Saturday, after home wins against ECU and UCF that snapped a four-game losing skid. Sophomore guard Christian Vital has averaged 17.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.5 steals in the last two games.

Junior guard Jalen Adams surpassed the 1,000-point mark against the Knights, becoming the 50th player in program history to reach 1,000 career points and the first since guard Rodney Purvis in the 2016-17 season. He is scoring 18.5 points per game this season, the second-best mark in the conference.  

UConn’s stifling defense held UCF to just 53 points – a season-low for opponents – and a mere 36.5-percent shooting clip from the floor. The Huskies forced 15 turnovers, led by four steals from Vital, and scored 20 points off UCF’s mistakes.

The Waves Not Loving This Matchup

After a 6-25 season last year, Tulane equaled that win total in this season’s first seven games. The Green Wave already has compiled 11 wins and is vastly improved. Tulane is shooting .465 overall and a solid .375 from three-point range.

The Green Wave has a sparkling 8-1 record at home, while UConn is 0-3 on the road. Leading Tulane’s resurgence is junior Melvin Frazier, leading the Green Wave in scoring (17.6) and second in rebounding (6.5). Senior Cam Reynolds is second in scoring (16.3), leads in rebounding (6.5) and is the top three-point threat.

UConn is 5-0 all-time against Tulane, including a 78-68 win against the Green Wave last season on Jan. 28, 2017. The series dates back to 2015.

TRENDS

  • Huskies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.
  • Huskies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
  • Green Wave are 6-16-2 ATS in their last 24 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
  • Green Wave are 6-17-3 ATS in their last 26 home games.
  • Green Wave are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall.

When UConn allows less than 70 points this season, it holds a 7-0 record, including a 2-0 mark in the conference. I don’t see the Green waves scoring past that as the Huskies defense have been stepping up huge lately.
