This will be a rematch of a game that went to overtime just a few weeks ago. Tulsa won that game 79-75 as a 5.5-point underdog. The Golden Hurricane are red hot right now and are in first place in the American Athletic. Connecticut are starting to fade right now, so this might as well be a must win game for them.
The Huskies are playing some horrible basketball right now, going 3-7 in their last 10. In conference games, they are 2-6 and have yet to win a road conference game. Not only have they not won an away conference game, but they have not won on the road period. An 0-5 away record for the Huskies has me weary to ever back them in this spot.
Now, this offense is really nothing special as they average 70.8 points per game. I already mentioned their road struggles, but the reason for this is they only average 57.6 points per game. In just four conference road games, they average 57.5 points per game, further showing their inconsistencies.
The UConn defense is not as bad as they may look, allowing only 65.3 points per game. Teams only shoot 40.3% against them as well, so they have success in this area.
Going back to the road woes, the Huskies allow 67.2 points per game. They allow 43% from the field in these games, so their opponents are clearly able to score at a higher rate.
However, since the start of their conference schedule, they are allowing 70.8 points per game and in conference away games, they allow 68.7 points.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
The Golden Hurricane are now sitting pretty at the top of the AAC standings after beating Wichita State 54-51. A three-pointer at the buzzer gave Tulsa the upset win an also gave them a huge resume building win.
Tulsa is by no means an explosive offense, averaging just 70.4 points per game. They are a team that is going to grind out the points and will wear you down.
However, during the six-game winning streak, they are scoring 68 points per game. The Golden Hurricane are led by Brandon Rachal, who is averaging 14.1 points per game. The other top scorers are Jeriah Horne and Martins Igbanu.
However, it was Elijah Joiner, who stole the show against a ranked Wichita State team. Joiner only averages 7.4 points per game, but had 22 against the Shockers and hit the game winner. This just shows us how balanced the Golden Hurricane can be when they need to
Defense for Tulsa has been very good, allowing an average of 64.2. This numbers greatly improves at home, where they allow 56.2. During their six-game win streak, this number comes down even more to 55.
What Tulsa really does well is defend the three-point line. From deep range, their opponents shoot just 27.7%. As long as they continue their rock solid defense at home, they can ensure a 7th straight win.
