MB Preview Tulane

Larry Brown and the Mustangs are searching for their fifth consecutive win when they head to New Orleans to square off against the Tulane Green Wave (13-5, 4-2 American) in an American Athletic Conference showdown.

This will be the teams’ first meeting since Feb. 16, 2013 – when both teams were in C-USA.

The Mustangs are second in the conference with a one game lead, but a Green Wave win would put both teams in a tie for 2nd place.

Tulane is coming off a loss to UCF in triple over time and is looking to kick off their three-game homestand on a high note.

The Mustangs (14-4, 5-1 American) currently lead the conference in field goal percentage (49.0) and field goal defense (38.1) and are looking to build off their most recent win against East Carolina.

SMU holds a 15-13 series advantage, but lost the last meeting in February 2013, 78-67.

SMU will look to continue their winning-streak in spite of recent controversy. The Mustangs will be without sophomore guard Keith Frazier, who has been ruled ineligible pending an appeal; assistant coach Ulric Maligi, who has taken leave from the team; while also dealing with an NCAA investigation hanging over their heads.

The game be televised on CBS College Sports Network at 8 p.m. CT.
