It’s an AAC conference showdown on Thursday night in Dallas. The Tulsa Golden Hurricanes try to finish the season strong when they travel to take on the SMU Mustangs.
This is the first match up of the season. The Mustangs blew out the Golden Hurricanes in their first match up. The defense of SMU was smothering and they won by a final score of 76-53.
Tulsa Golden Hurricanes
Coming into this season not many people had high expectations for the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes. But this last few games are very important for the team as they hope to finish above the .500 mark.
They come into this game with a 14-14 record and sit in 6th place in the AAC Conference. After losing six straight games they come into this game having won two straight games.
The problem the Golden Hurricanes have on the road is on the offensive side of the floor. They only average 62.7 points and shoot 39.7 percent from the field. To win this game they need to raise that number.
The Mustangs have a very good defense so they need to find some holes on how to attack it. I think they would be better suited in this game if they push the pace of play and really try to get out in transition.
After a coaching change last season the SMU Mustangs have not skipped a beat and look like a team that could make some noise in March Madness.
They come into this game with a 25-4 record and sit in 1st place in the AAC. If they win this game they will lock up at least a share of the regular season conference title.
The Mustangs strength is on the defensive side of the ball. They can really lock up teams and shut the other teams best player down. They only give up 59 points per game and opponents shoot 38.8 percent from the field.
As good as the defense is the offense holds their own too. They score 73 points per game well shooting 46.1 percent from the field. To win this game they just need to play good on the defensive side of the ball. They are the better team in this match up and just can’t overlook this game.

Free Tulsa Golden Hurricanes vs. SMU Mustangs NCAAB Prediction:
This game is going to come down to how well the Golden Hurricanes can score against the stingy Mustangs defense. I think the Hurricanes will get out to a slow start and have a problem scoring the ball.
I think they will be able to make a push in the second half but it will be too late.
