Tulsa is a respectable basketball program but it doesn’t look like they are doing anything this season. They just pushed Wichita State at home though, losing by three.
You could say the same thing about Temple save the recent loss to the Shockers. They lost their last one in OT against Memphis but have some good results too.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
After starting 3-0 in the AAC Tulsa has lost their last three. To be totally fair the competition has stiffened though.
Junior Etou is the leading scorer and rebounder for this team. He has gotten better every season and since his transfer from Rutgers.
After Etou there just isn’t that much. Sterling Taplin is the only other player scoring in double figures. He has been up and down over this three seasons at Tulsa.
Like so many teams there is nothing that really stands out about Tulsa. They are going to win their fair share of games but not much more.
Temple has a proud tradition. Last year they were just .500 and this season they are just under. They are definitely experiencing a down cycle.
The Owls have some pretty good players but I wonder if they need to open things up more. They play a grind it out sort of style but perhaps they would succeed with more flow.
Obi Enechionyia is having a hard season. He looks like a prototypical stretch four but his shooting is down this season. In a recent loss to UCF he was held to 2 points in 31 minutes.
Freshman Nate Pierre-Louis came out of nowhere to score 23 in a loss to Memphis. If he can become a more reliable contributor it would go a long way for this group.

Free Tulsa Golden Hurricane vs. Temple Owls NCAAB Prediction:
Temple definitely looks like the better of the two teams to me ant at home they should have some advantage.
The Owls, who I think should play faster, will get the tempo they want and will win with strong defense and just enough scoring.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Temple Owls -6.5
Temple at sub .500 should be a nice play. How much can they really make them a favourite, right?
