After a win over No. 1-ranked Ole Miss at home on March 15, the Lions dropped all three games in a weekend series at Samford.

Southeastern has homered at least one in each of its last five games. The Lions last accomplished the feat, from March 31 to April 11, 2018, with a seven-game home run.
Tulane is coming off an unbeaten week after a five-game losing streak. The Green Wave beat Nicholls, 5-3, last Wednesday and won the first two games of a weekend home series against Villanova. Sunday’s series finale ended in a 3-3 draw after nine innings due to a curfew.
Jackson Linn (.444), Ethan Groff (.403) and Luis Aviles (.273) are Tulane’s best hitters. Groff leads the team in extra-base hits (15), home runs (3), RBIs (17) and stolen bases (4).
