Tulane Green Wave
Tulane Green Wave carries a record of 10-11 as of the moment but things were not like this to start the season. In their past ten games, this team has lost eight and are now on a five-game skid. Hightower is this team’s best offensive option as he leads the team with 15.5 points along with 4.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists. KJ Lawson and Thompson give the added support averaging double-digit scoring but they need their bench to come alive and they have been sleeping to start the year.
