Tulsa at Wichita State 2/2/19 - NCAA Basketball Picks & Predictions

Tulsa has to be wondering where the great non-conference schedule they were playing went. The Golden Hurricanes went from being unstoppable to being one of those teams that is very easy to stop and have only managed to win 3 more games once the conference play started. However, the Golden Hurricanes are a team that can run with almost anyone on the day and that definitely held true after the Golden Hurricanes dominated Memphis in the last game.

The Golden Hurricanes on the year have been able to get 14.1 points a game from DaQuan Jeffries this year. The assist leader for the Golden Hurricanes has been Sterling Taplin with 4.5 assist a game. The rebound king for the Golden Hurricanes is Jerffiers who has pulled down 5.7 boards a game. Wichita State is playing even worse than what the Tulsa squad has on the year and have only managed to get 2 wins in conference play, but have picked up 6 losses as well. What has not helped the Shockers is they have not been able to shock anyone on the year as the overall record for the Shockers has led to them being completely controlled in most of the games they have played in, but the good news is the Shockers are coming into the game here with a 2 point win over SMU.

The Shockers on the year have been able to rely on Markis McDuffie who has put in 18.5 points a game. The Shockers have been able to get 2.8 assist a game from Samajae Haynes-Jones. Jaime Echenique has managed to get 5.4 boards per game.

The Golden Hurricanes may not be playing that well, but compared to the Shockers and the way the Golden Hurricanes dominated the Tigers it is easy to see the Shockers are going to be in trouble. The Golden Hurricanes offense will be able to play great and the defense for the Golden Hurricanes will be pushed, but they will bring home a win in this game as the offense of the Shockers never really gets going. Final Score Prediction, Tulsa Golden Hurricanes win, but grab the points just in case, 86-79.
