So, which is the real Memphis? The Tigers could make things interesting in C-USA, especially since the tourney is in Elvis Town.

I was checking out the results of the Cincy-USF game and the Bearcats really put the D on the Bulls. They held USF to 25.9 percent shooting for the game (16.7 in the first half!) and completely shut down the Bulls leading scorer Terrence Leather, who entered the game with an 18.8 ppg average.

Yes, I realize the opponent was USF, but the Bearcats, like Charlotte and Louisville, seem to hitting their stride in C-USA play. Should be a great game in Halton a week from tomorrow.
