The Golden Eagles hit the road following a 56-point home win against Marshall on Wednesday which is providing us with value on Tulsa which is back home following a 1-1 roadtrip. Southern Mississippi was expected to go through a rebuilding season following a very successful 25-9 record from a season ago. The Golden Eagles lost four players averaging a combined 42 ppg so not much was expected but new head coach Donnie Tyndall, who came over from Morehead St., has done a remarkable job so far. They are 16-4 overall including a perfect 5-0 in C-USA which is a half-game better than 4-0 Memphis. Southern Mississippi is riding a nine-game winning streak including a 56-point pulverizing of Marshall in its most recent game on Wednesday. They have yet to be tested on the road however in conference action as the two wins on the highway were at SMU and Rice. Tulsa will provide that challenge as the Golden Hurricane are 12-8 overall including a 4-2 record in C-USA. They are coming off a solid win at Houston which made up for a disappointing loss at Tulane last Saturday. Tulsa has won five straight games at home and is 7-1 overall at the Reynolds Center with the only loss coming against Stephen F. Austin back in November and while that looks like a horrible loss, the Lumberjacks are 16-1 on the season including a win at Oklahoma. Tulsa has won 96 of its last 111 home games at the Reynolds Center so it has had a significant home court edge and it needs to keep that going if it plans on contending this season. Overall, Tulsa has covered four straight while Southern Mississippi is 3-8 ATS in its last 11 games after scoring more than 90 points in its previous game. Play (598) Tulsa Golden Hurricane.
