What to Know

An American Athletic battle is on tap between the Tulane Green Wave and the SMU Mustangs at 2 p.m. ET Saturday at Fogelman Arena in Devlin Fieldhouse. Tulane isn't expected to win, but seeing as the odds didn't stop them last game, maybe the team has another upset up their sleeve.

The Green Wave escaped with a win on Wednesday against the Wichita State Shockers by the margin of a single free throw, 68-67. Tulane relied on the efforts of guard Jaylen Forbes, who had 20 points in addition to seven boards, and guard Jalen Cook, who had 18 points and five assists.

Meanwhile, SMU had enough points to win and then some against the South Florida Bulls on Wednesday, taking their contest 77-65. SMU got double-digit scores from four players: guard Kendric Davis (17), forward Marcus Weathers (17), guard Zhuric Phelps (17), and guard Michael Weathers (10).

Tulane is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Southern Jaguars Nov. 13 easily too and instead slipped up with a 73-70. In other words, don't count the Mustangs out just yet.
