With a capacity for 3,600 people, but likely about 200 or so in Devlin Fieldhouse in New Orleans for Memphis vs. Tulane, the Green Wave staged a comeback but ran out of time. Final: Memphis 83 Tulane 79

The New Orleans Saints are the main attraction in the Big Easy. Yes, there was a playoff game for the Saints. (The Saints pulled out that one over the Philadelphia Eagles, by the way. Final there: Saints 20 Eagles 14)

Yes, road wins are hard to close out sometimes, even if you're favored by 10.5 points like the Memphis Tigers were Sunday evening.

The highlight for Memphis was Jeremiah Martin, who scored 27 points making 5 of 8 from the 3-point arc Sunday against Tulane.  Next Memphis Tigers game vs. SMU: Saturday (1/19) on ESPN U at 3:00 p.m.
