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.
