The Tulsa Golden Hurricane will aim for their second consecutive win when they take on the East Carolina Pirates on Tuesday. The Golden Hurricane recently defeated Tulane 81-79 as underdogs, while the Pirates lost to Temple 73-58. Tulsa has a strong record against East Carolina, having won 8 of their last 10 games. However, the Hurricane are yet to win on the road this season and will look to change that against the Pirates, who come into the game on a five-game losing streak. The Pirates will aim to end their skid and earn their second win in seven games. Both teams will need to improve their defensive performance from their last game if they hope to come out victorious. Wynston Tabbs’ availability for the game is questionable due to an undisclosed injury.
Both teams will also look to improve their offensive performance, as they both average around 69 points per game. The Golden Hurricane will look to build on the strong performances of Sam Griffin, Tim Dalger, and Brandon Betson, who led the team in scoring and rebounding in their last game. The Pirates will look to key players like Quentin Diboundje, RJ Felton, and Benjamin Bayela to lead the way. Both teams will have to work to improve their field goal and three-point percentages if they hope to come out on top.
The game promises to be an exciting matchup between two teams looking to turn their season around. The Golden Hurricane will try to continue their recent success against the Pirates, while the Pirates will look to end their losing streak and earn a much-needed win. With both teams looking to improve their defensive performance, it could be a low-scoring game, but with both teams having key players that can score, it could also be a high-scoring affair.
In the end, it will be a battle of which team can execute their game plan better and who wants it more. With the outcome of the game uncertain, it will be a must-watch for fans of college basketball.
