Short and sweet Layup Line here as not much has changed for either UC or Tulane. The Green Wave sit at 5-10 in the conference, and (obviously) one of those victories came against the Bearcats just a couple weeks ago.
- Game: Saturday, February 28 @ 2:00pm ET
- Location: Devlin Fieldhouse; New Orleans, LA

I'm still convinced you're looking at a new and improved Cincinnati Bearcats squad. An attacking Shaq Thomas. A renewed backcourt with Caupain and Cobb starting together. Pushing the ball in transition. What's not to like lately?
Tulane doesn't play at a fast pace; they're in the bottom half of all of college basketball's tempo rankings. And, as you're probably aware, the Bearcats play at a snail's pace - which is partly why the last meeting between these two teams resulted in 99 combined points.
What the 'Cats have to do to win:
- Score. Obvious, right? The Green Wave have a bad offense. A really bad offense. The Bearcats should be able to hold them to less than 60. Which means if they score a few points, they'll win this one easily.
I said short and sweet, didn't I? This one won't be close. An attacking Bearcats squad out-muscles Tulane early, and the outcome's never in doubt: Bearcats win 64-53.
