Houston vs Tulane preview

Why would Houston win?

The Cougars have been weak lately, but they still lead the nation in field goal defense percentage, they are still 4th in the D-record, and they still have the ability to narrow when they absolutely have to.

Both SMU and Memphis were able to hit by three and hit the free throw line, and that turned out to be enough to overcome two recent losses in Houston. However, this was an aberration.

Tulane only made 33% of his shot in the first meeting — a 73-62 loss — and he couldn’t do any of the three or keep Houston off the boards.

He’ll make it tighter at home and will soon keep that late, but Houston’s defense will be very strong in the final few minutes. Missed Cougar free throws will bring this closer than it should be.
