(WVUE) -

Tulane first year head coach Travis Jewett said before the AAC Tournament that the Wave had to "win this thing" in order to earn a berth in the NCAA Tournament with an automatic bid but the Wave's season came to a halt Thursday in Clearwater, Florida as they were eliminated from the conference tournament.

Thursday's 8-3 loss at the hands of Central Florida came on the heels of Tuesday's 7-6 loss to South Florida and seals a losing record of 27-31, their first season under .500 since 2014. With an RPI of 78 at the regular season, Tulane's season is all-but-officially over. Only 64 teams receive a bid to the NCAA Tournament, including those automatic bids for conference tournament winners.
