Looking for 10th win, but weird things can happen in NOLA (and usually do).

Line has Ponies by 10.5. Road wins are tough.

Hoping any NOLA-based alums or those on drinking vacations will be heard and seen tonight.

Caught all the MLK weekend games in NOLA when LB was the man. What a great little gym.
TV bound in Los Hamptons tonight.

Let's hope Tulane is equally as bad. Either that, or Cincy is REALLY good the way they took them apart the other night. If this Tulane team has any heart, I would expect a great effort from them on their home court after being humiliated in Cincy.

The team has come a long way since November. If they play to their capabilities this should be a rout.

I suspect a squeaker, unfortunately.

I expect it to be like the ECU game, close for about 10 minutes then SMU slowly pulls away for a decisive win.

We shall see though, We definitely have had problems at Tulane, even with our outstanding teams.
Probaly won't happen...BUT...maybe it will!!

A 10 point win in the league on the road would be nice.

I'm not sold yet on our ability to close out close games because of our defense.

75-64 is what Vegas is expecting between the line and the O/U.

I think a good team holds them in the low 60s and scores in the upper 70s to win by 15.

Honestly, I could see both teams slowing the pace, we struggle on offense, and this becomes a 65-59 SMU win.

Tulane has a worse record than ECU. At least a 20 point win.

Tulane is dreadful. This SHOULD be a double-digit W for us.

Once again it seems the rim of the basket is our opponents best defender
