Found March 16, 2014 on College Spun:
Seed: For the upcoming 2014 NCAA Tournament, the Memphis Tigers were given an 8-seed in the East-region. They are coached by Josh Pastner and hail from the AAC. You can view the entire 2014 NCAA Tournament field here in our official bracket. Where: They will open play against George Washington in Raleigh on Friday. Why: Memphis finished with a 12-6 record in the AAC, tied for third place with both SMU and and UConn. The Tigers scored notable wins over Oklahoma State, Louisville (twice), Gonzaga and SMU. Ceiling: Memphis only suffered one loss to a team – Houston – not in the NCAA Tournament field. The Tigers also played No. 1 overall Florida very tough back in December. It’s very possible that Memphis could make a deep run into the tournament, but the odds say that the Tigers only win a game or two. To prove us wrong, senior Joe Jackson is going to have to show up – every game.
