In episode 102 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler, GoTigers247 founder Brooks Hansen and GT247 digital content creator Kenny Stubblefield discuss the latest in Memphis football and basketball. To begin the episode, Fowler and Stubblefield break down the news of how the Memphis-Houston game got moved from the FedExForum to the Fertitta Center. GT247 broke the news on Friday morning, and it's a very slimy situation all around. In the duo's opinion, the American Athletic Conference feels like Houston and Wichita State have the best chance to get at-large bids in the NCAA Tournament, so they are protecting them at all costs. Instead of keeping the Memphis-Houston game a home game for the Tigers, they moved it to favor the Cougars. There is an argument that this rule was put in place before the season due to COVID-19, but it feels extremely shady regardless. After the first 10 minutes of the episode, Hansen is able to join, and he gives his full uncensored opinion on the topic. From Mike Aresco to Kelvin Sampson and ECU, Hansen goes in on the Memphis screwjob. Hansen explains how Memphis has done nothing wrong and done everything they were asked by the conference, but they still haven't been able to get a fair shake. Hansen also says that Memphis still hasn't heard anything about any games being rescheduled at this point, which isn't a good sign at all. Learn more about your ad choices.

In episode 101 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler, GoTigers247 founder Brooks Hansen and GoTigers247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield discuss the latest in Memphis football and basketball. To begin the episode, the crew quickly recaps Memphis' win over East Carolina, but the center of the discussion is on Alex Lomax. The junior guard had 10 points, nine assists, five rebounds and five steals on Saturday, and he has been a major piece of the Tigers' turnaround. Fowler, Hansen and Stubblefield all give their takes on Lomax and how important his play has been for Memphis this season. The Memphis native has been extremely impressive on both ends of the floor, which has helped the team in a big way. Next, the trio gives their opinion on the NCAA and AAC tournament. There are still plenty of people holding out hope for Penny Hardaway and the Tigers to get an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament, and the crew explains why that is very unrealistic at this point.  Hansen explains how the only way for the Tigers to get an at-large big would be for them to win out and for Houston to lose at least two games. Following the discussion on the NCAA Tournament, the crew explains how Memphis needs to run the table over the last eight games to get as good of a seed as possible for the conference tournament. If Memphis is able to lock down the two or three seed and get a first round bye, then they will have a much better chance to win the AAC tournament and get an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Finally, the trio answers questions that were asked on the site, including their thoughts on Boogie Ellis, football transfers Memphis' top 2022 targets and much more.

In this episode of Off the Boards, host and lead writer Christian Fowler and GT247 veteran Jonah Jordan sit down to discuss three-star wide receiver Roc Taylor and his commitment to Memphis. Taylor signed with Memphis on National Signing Day after Tennessee pulled his offer on Tuesday, and he is the highest rated player in the Tigers' 2021 class. With the addition of Taylor, Memphis' 2021 class is up to No. 45 overall in the 247Sports Team Rankings. Taylor is currently ranked as the No. 440 overall player in the class and the No. 15 overall player from the state of Alabama. The three-star prospect was named first-team all-state in Alabama's Class 6A after racking up over 1,000 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns, and he also stood out during the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game practices. Throughout the podcast, Fowler and Jordan discuss what Taylor brings to Memphis' receiving corps with his size and ability to box out defenders. Taylor joins three-stars Cameron Wright and Tyrese Johnson as Memphis' receiver commits for the '21 class, and they all three have great size. With his big-bodied frame, Taylor has the ability to play outside receiver for the Tigers, and they can also slide him to tight end in certain packages if need be. Ryan Silverfield and the staff have built a spectacular '21 class, and Taylor is the cherry on top.

In episode 100 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler, GoTigers247 founder Brooks Hansen and GoTigers247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield discuss the latest in Memphis football and basketball. To begin the episode, Fowler and Stubblefield welcome Hansen back after a hiatus, and they begin to discuss Memphis' last two games against SMU and UCF. Hansen discusses the loss to the Mustangs and how the Tigers didn't play well enough to beat SMU twice in three days.  Hansen also drops some news regarding the officiating from the SMU game and how Memphis filed a complaint with the American Athletic Conference.  After the discussion of SMU, the trio moves on to the UCF game. On Monday, the Tigers defeated the Knights by 27 points, and the GT247 crew explains how Memphis played a perfect game. Alex Lomax, Lester Quinones, DeAndre Williams, Landers Nolley and Boogie Ellis were all very impressive on Monday, and the crew breaks down each of their performances and how they helped the Tigers get a massive win. The discussion of the UCF game leads to a breakdown of Memphis' performances since the win over Wichita State and how the team has completely turned the season around. Hansen gives some inside info on what the Tigers did during their long layoff and how that translated to success on the floor. Finally, the trio explains what Memphis is doing offensively and why it's been successful. Although people still believe Memphis is running the Lion offense, the GT247 crew explains the offensive sets that the Tigers are actually running that have been successful.

In episode 99 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler and GoTigers247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield discuss the latest in Memphis football and basketball. To begin the episode, Fowler and Stubblefield break down Memphis' four-point win over SMU on Tuesday night. Despite trailing by 13 points in the first half, the Tigers were able to go on a 17-2 run and secure their first lead before the halftime break. After the half, Memphis and SMU went back and forth, but the Tigers were able to outlast the Mustangs. With the win over SMU, Memphis now has sole possession of second in the American Athletic Conference, and they are on an impressive three-game winning streak. Over the past three games, the Tigers have looked like a different team. Memphis has hit 10-plus threes in all of their last three contests, and they've also shot 50 percent or better from the floor in back-to-back games. The GT247 crew discusses performances from Moussa Cisse, Alex Lomax and DJ Jeffries among others. Cisse had his fourth career double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, Lomax led the team in scoring with 14 points and Jeffries seemingly got out of his shooting slump with 12 points. After the discussion of the standout players from the game, the duo takes a look forward to Memphis' second game of the week against SMU and explains what they can do to defeat the Mustangs once again.

In episode 98 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler and GoTigers247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield discuss the latest in Memphis football and basketball. To begin the episode, Fowler and Stubblefield discuss Memphis' massive 20-point win over Wichita State. The Shockers came into the game as the second best team in the AAC with a 4-1 conference record, but the Tigers dominated the game. Memphis has struggled to finish games this season, so I'm sure there weren't many fans holding their breath when the Tigers went into the half with a six-point lead. With Wichita State shooting terribly in the first half, there were likely many who expected the Shockers to came out and run away with the game in the second half. If that was you, then I can't really blame you. Memphis just blew a six-point halftime lead against Tulsa, but the Tigers came out in the second half and looked incredible. It was the Tigers' best performance in a half since the first game of the season against Saint Mary's, and the GT247 crew explains what Penny Hardaway and the Tigers need to do to sustain this success moving forward. Throughout the episode, the GT247 crew breaks down performances from Landers Nolley, Moussa Cisse, Alex Lomax and more. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
In episode 97 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler and GoTigers247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield discuss the latest in Memphis football and basketball. To begin the episode, Fowler and Stubblefield quickly recap the news of Jordan Nesbitt and his early enrollment at Memphis. Nesbitt is already on campus taking classes, and he will be eligible to practice and play for the remainder of the season. Next, the duo recaps Memphis' one-point loss to Tulsa. Although the Tigers played well in the second half, they couldn't find a way to finish out the Golden Hurricane. Memphis finished the game with a season-high 21 turnovers, which was the biggest reason they couldn't win the game. The GT247 crew explains how and why Memphis has had trouble finishing out games all season. Memphis has played in close games all year, but they seemingly can't find a way to win in the last 5-7 minutes of a game. This has been a recurring issue for Penny Hardaway and the Tigers all season, and they will continue to struggle if they can't figure something out. Finally, Fowler and Stubblefield take a look forward to Memphis' upcoming game against Wichita State. The Shockers have been surprisingly good this season despite firing head coach Gregg Marshall and losing multiple players to the transfer portal. Wichita State currently sits at second in the American Athletic Conference as Tyson Etienne and Alterique Gilbert have led the way for the Shockers. With the way they've played this season, this will likely be another close back-and-forth game for the Tigers. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
In this episode of Off the Boards, host and lead writer Christian Fowler and GT247 digital content creator Kenny Stubblefield sit down to discuss four-star guard Jordan Nesbitt and his decision to enroll at Memphis. Before breaking down the news, Fowler speaks with Nesbitt about his decision, and the four-star explains why it was best for him to go ahead and enroll at the university. GT247 broke the news that Nesbitt has already enrolled for the spring semester at Memphis, and Fowler and Stubblefield give their biggest takeaways on his decision. Nesbitt committed to Memphis on October 1 and signed with the program on November 11. It's fairly uncommon for a basketball player to enroll early, so the crew beaks down both the short and long-term effects this move may have on both the program and Nesbitt. Both Fowler and Stubblefield agree that this is a great move for both sides.  Instead of spending another meaningless semester in high school, Nesbitt will instead be at Memphis preparing for the future. The No. 56 overall player in the 2021 class will be able to learn the system and get to know his new teammates and coaches on and off the floor. Learn more about your ad choices.

In episode 96 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler, GT247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield and GT247 vet Jonah Jordan discuss the latest in Memphis football and basketball. To begin the episode, the crew discusses the Memphis-SMU postponement, which was the Tigers' third consecutive game to be pushed back. With the game against the Mustangs off, Memphis won't play their next game until Sunday against Tulsa which is 20 days from their last game. Fowler, Stubblefield and Jordan break down the positives and negatives of the 20-day layoff, and they also explain how difficult this will make the rest of the season. The UCF game was rescheduled, but now Memphis, SMU, Temple and the AAC have to figure out how/when to reschedule the games. Memphis' last scheduled game against Houston is in March, so they will have a month and a half to play the remaining 17 games on schedule. The trio breaks down how and why this can be problematic moving forward. Next, Fowler and Stubblefield talk about former Tigers James Wiseman and Precious Achiuwa. Wiseman has been a standout for the Golden State Warriors this season, and Achiuwa made his first start with the Miami Heat on Tuesday night. Achiuwa finished his first career start with a career high in minutes (36), points (17) and rebounds (13), and he showed that he can be a viable weapon for the defending Eastern Conference Champions moving forward. Finally, Fowler and Jordan move on to Memphis football and discuss the transfers of Obinna Eze and T.J. Carter. They give their opinions on what the transfers mean, and they also explain who they believe could step up to fill their respective roles next season. Before the episode wraps, Fowler and Jordan give the latest on Memphis wide receiver Calvin Austin. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
In episode 95 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler and GT247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield discuss the latest in Memphis football and basketball. Memphis coach Penny Hardaway and the Tigers got a massive one-point victory over South Florida earlier this week, and Fowler and Stubblefield break down the positives and the negatives from the conference win. As far as positives go, the duo breaks down performances from Alex Lomax, Lester Quinones and DeAndre Williams. Lomax has been bad for the majority of the season, but he was the biggest reason Memphis escaped with a victory.  Lomax was a massive presence on the defensive end of the floor, and Quinones and Williams combined for 19 points in the second half alone. The duo explains why these three players were so important and how important their energy and effort were during the game. Another positive Fowler and Stubblefield took away from the game was Hardaway's decision to shorten the rotation late in the game. Instead of trying to play nine or 10 players, Hardaway only allowed seven players to touch the floor late in the game, which is another major reason the Tigers won the game. Next, they begin discussing the negatives from the game, which center around the player of Landers Nolley and DJ Jeffries. Nolley hasn't been great offensively over the past several games, and he was nonexistent down the stretch against the Bulls. Jeffries has also struggled over the past two games offensively, and the duo explains why they believe he hasn't been as effective on offense. Finally, the GT247 crew gives their full synopsis from the 2020-2021 football season. Memphis coach Ryan Silverfield and the Tigers finished the year with an 8-3 record, and Memphis got their first bowl victory since the 2014 Miami Beach Bowl against BYU. Fowler gives grades for Silverfield's first year as a head coach, the outlook for next season and more. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
In this episode of Off the Boards, host and lead writer Christian Fowler and GT247 veteran Jonah Jordan sit down to discuss Grant Gunnell and his transfer to Memphis. The former Arizona quarterback transferred to Memphis on Thursday, and Fowler and Jordan break down what it means for the Tigers. With Brady White now gone, the addition of Gunnell is massive. Memphis was going to have a quarterback competition leading up to next season between former three-star prospect Keilon Brown and LSU transfer Peter Parrish, but Gunnell is now the best quarterback on roster. There will certainly still be a competition because head coach Ryan Silverfield and offensive coordinator Kevin Johns aren't going to hand Gunnell the starting job, but he has to be the heavy favorite to be Memphis' signal caller when the 2021-2022 season begins. Gunnell has the prototypical quarterback size at 6-foot-6, and he has a ton of arm talent and potential. In his limited number of starts with the Wildcats, he proved why he was a very highly touted prospect coming out of high school. Fowler and Jordan discuss what it says about Silverfield and staff now that they've landed transfers from Arizona and Michigan State. With Gunnell and former Spartans Devontae Dobbs and Julian Barnett on board, the staff is proving that they can land elite transfers. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
In episode 94 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler, GT247 founder Brooks Hansen, GT247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield and GT247 vet Jonah Jordan discuss the latest in Memphis football and basketball. To begin the episode, Fowler and Jordan discuss the recent additions of Michigan State transfers Devontae Dobbs and Julian Barnett. Dobbs and Barnett are the two highest-ranked player to ever commit and sign with Memphis, and coach Ryan Silverfield was able to do that in a matter of hours. Dobbs is a 6-foot-4, 304-pound offensive lineman and Barnett is a 6-foot-2 cornerback/wide receiver, and both players have the potential to make an immediate impact for the Tigers. Fowler and Jordan also go into detail about how much better Memphis has gotten thus far with the 2021 class and the two big time transfers. Next, the GT247 crew previews the Montgomery Bowl between Memphis and Florida Atlantic. The Tigers and the Owls will play on December 23 at 6:00 p.m. CST, and Memphis will be looking for their first bowl win since the 2014 Miami Beach Bowl. Throughout the preview of the game, Fowler, Jordan and Hansen break down why Memphis should win this game and what they need to do to ensure that they come back to Memphis victorious. This will be Brady White's last game in a Memphis uniform, so the players will likely give their all for him. After all the positivity in the football discussion, the mood and tone of the podcast shifts very quickly when the subject moves to basketball. Penny Hardaway and the Tigers lost a game that they definitely should've won against Tulsa, and the loss was a microcosim of the season up to this point. Memphis looked terrible offensively, and they made too many mistakes at the end of the game. The crew gives their thoughts on the loss, and they explain why they believe the Tigers are struggling so badly this year. From the coaching to the players and every aspect in between, the GT247 crew gives their brutally honest opinions. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
In episode 93 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler, GT247 founder Brooks Hansen and GT247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield discuss the latest in Memphis basketball following the Tigers' win over Tulane. To begin the episode, the crew recaps Memphis' six-point win over the Green Wave. Although the Tigers got off to a hot start, Tulane was able to come back and make it a one-point game before the half. Fowler, Hansen and Stubblefield give their biggest takeaways from the game, including the rotations, performances from bench players, DeAndre Williams' debut and more. In his first game as a Tiger, Williams was clearly a difference maker and likely would've had a massive stat line if he wasn't in foul trouble. The trio gives their opinion on the type of impact the Evansville transfer can have on the team for the rest of the season. After the Williams discussion, the GT247 crew discusses Alex Lomax. The junior guard has struggled for the majority of the season, and they explain what he's doing wrong and how Penny Hardaway can fix it. In Hansen's opinion, Hardaway needs to shorten the rotation. There are too many players coming off the bench that aren't making an impact, so Hardaway has to keep his best players on the floor if this team is going to be successful.

In this episode of Off the Boards, host and lead writer Christian Fowler and GT247 veteran Jonah Jordan sit down to discuss Memphis' 2021 signees. The Tigers signed 15 players on Wednesday, and they locked down the majority of their top pledges. Memphis' highest rated commit – four-star Andrew Jones – signed, and they also received signatures from three-stars Tyrell Raby, Royce White and JP Martin among multiple others. It was a very successful day for the program as they secured most of what could potentially be the best class in school history. Throughout the episode, Fowler and Jordan discuss three-star offensive lineman Makylan Pounders and what he brings to the team. At 6-foot-6 and 295 pounds, Pounders is a massive human being who could compete for a starting job from day one. The duo also gives their opinion on which players will contribute most as freshmen and which players are the most underrated that signed on Wednesday. Learn more about your ad choices.

In episode 92 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler, GT247 founder Brooks Hansen and GT247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield discuss the latest in Memphis football and basketball. To begin the episode, the trio breaks down Memphis' loss against Auburn and explains what went wrong in that game. The Tigers' offense looked really good in the first half, but they couldn't get out of their own way after halftime. Memphis missed multiple easy dunks and layups, and Auburn took advantage of the mistakes. Penny Hardaway said he is taking back the reins of Memphis' offense, and the GT247 theorizes exactly what that means. With conference play beginning on Wednesday night, the crew explains what they want to see out of this team moving forward. They seem to have a lack of focus, which is something a team with this level of talent should never have. The crew also talks about DeAndre Williams and what he will bring to the floor if he is ruled eligible prior to the Tulane game. The NCAA is supposed to be voting on a rule on Wednesday that would make all transfers immediate eligible, which would be big news for Memphis. After the basketball discussion, the trio moves on to Memphis' 30-27 win over Houston on Saturday. Ryan Silverfield and the Tigers finished the regular season with a 7-3 record, and they will be playing in the Montgomery Bowl on December 23. Fowler explains why this season was way more successful than most fans seem to think, and he also breaks down Memphis' All-AAC selections and discusses a major snub. Learn more about your ad choices.

In episode 91 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler, GT247 founder Brooks Hansen, GT247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield and GT247 veteran Jonah Jordan discuss the latest in Memphis football and basketball. To begin the episode, the crew recaps Memphis' win over Central Arkansas and gives their biggest takeaways from the game, including the play of DJ Jeffries, Alex Lomax and Jayden Hardaway among others. After massive shooting struggles through the first four games of the year, Jeffries looked like himself again against UCA. Although it was against an inferior opponent, it's good for Jeffries to build his confidence before AAC play begins. Through five games of his junior season, Lomax has struggled heavily, and the crew explains why he is struggling and how it can be fixed moving forward. Memphis is still looking for a consistent point guard, so it would be big for them if Lomax stepped up at some point this season. During last week's episode, Fowler, Hansen and Stubblefield raved about Jayden Hardaway, and he had his best game of the season against the Bears. Hardaway looked confident, decisive and efficient, and he can definitely be a contributor for the Tigers this season. Next, the topic shifts to football and Memphis' loss against Tulane in New Orleans. The Tigers have now lost two consecutive games in the Big Easy, but Fowler and Jordan explain why they are optimistic for the future. Ryan Silverfield has underwent the most unlucky year for a first-year head coach, and he should be able to turn things around next year. Although Memphis has struggled this season, they are still 6-3 and will go to a bowl game if they accept a bid. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
In episode 90 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler, GT247 founder Brooks Hansen and GT247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield to discuss the latest in Memphis football and basketball. Penny Hardaway and the Tigers defeated Arkansas State by 29 points on Wednesday night, and the GT247 crew breaks down the good, bad and indifferent from the win inside FedExForum. Memphis' offense operated better as they finished the game with 21 assists, but the trio reiterates multiple times that it's hard to take too much away from this game because it was against such a bad opponent. Throughout the episode, Fowler, Hansen and Stubblefield also talk about the inefficient shooting from sophomores DJ Jeffries and Lester Quinones. Jeffries has struggled shooting the ball in all four game, and – despite having a great all-around game on Wednesday – Quinones struggled to knock down open shots once again. During the episode, the crew also breaks down performances from freshman Moussa Cisse, JUCO transfer Ahmad Rand – who played his first game with the team – and Jayden Hardaway. Cisse finished the game with 14 points and 10 rebounds, Rand looked like a potential difference maker on defense and on the boards and Hardaway proved that he is capable of making an impact this year. The trio goes into depth on all three players and what their individual roles can look like on the team this season. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
In episode 89 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler, GT247 founder Brooks Hansen GT247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield and the newest/oldest member of the team Jonah Jordan discuss the latest in Memphis football and basketball. To begin the episode, the crew recaps Memphis' performance in the Crossover Classic, and they explain what went wrong in losses against Western Kentucky and VCU. The Tigers looked incredible against a solid Saint Mary's team, but they looked like the 2019 version of the team in the final two games of the tournament. Hansen, Fowler and Jordan explain what Memphis needs to do in their two games this week against Arkansas State and Central Arkansas to look like they did against the Gaels. Throughout the discussion, the crew talks about point guard play, Moussa Cisse, Landers Nolley and more. After the basketball discussion, the topic switches to football and the 10-7 win over Navy on Saturday. For the first time in school history, Memphis defeated the Midshipmen in Annapolis, but it certainly wasn't a pretty win. The Tigers struggled running the ball, and they were only able to put up 10 points in a game that they should've won by double digits. In the win, the defense had their best performance of the season which is an encouraging sign. Jordan and Fowler break down the win over Navy, and they explain what they will be looking for from the Tigers moving forward. Following the win over Navy, Memphis will be in New Orleans, Louisiana this weekend to face Tulane. When Memphis traveled to face Tulane in 2018 they suffered an embarrassing loss, and the GT247 crew explains what the Tigers need to do to knock off the Green Wave. Learn more about your ad choices.

In episode 88 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler and GT247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield break down Memphis' six-point loss to Western Kentucky in the semifinal of the Bad Boy Mowers Crossover Classic. To begin the episode, Fowler and Stubblefield explain why they believe the Tigers lost, including their struggles on the offensive end of the floor. Landers Nolley (25 points) and Boogie Ellis (14 points) were Memphis' only players with double digits in this game, and everyone else struggled on offense. The GT247 crew explains why they think Memphis' offense was ineffective in this game, and they also broke down what they can do better on Friday. Defensively, the Tigers played well once again, but they couldn't handle former five-star prospect Charles Bassey. Bassey dominated Memphis in the second half, and the team simply had no answer for him. Memphis was without Ahmad Rand (contact tracing), and they are still awaiting word on DeAndre Williams from the NCAA, and both of those players could've made a difference in this game.

In episode 87 of GT247's Tigers in 20, host and lead writer Christian Fowler, GT247 founder Brooks Hansen and GT247 digital content producer Kenny Stubblefield break down Memphis' 17-point win over Saint Mary's. The Tigers and the Gaels met in the first game of the Bad Boy Mowers Crossover Classic, and Memphis dominated the game. Although they started the game slow, Memphis controlled the game from the middle of the first half to the end of the game. Despite only being 5-point favorites, Memphis clearly showed who the best team was on Wednesday. Sophomore guard Boogie Ellis lead all scorers with 24 points, and he finished the game 6-of-7 from three. During the episode, the GT247 crew gives their instant takeaways from the game, and they also discuss performances from Ellis, Damion Baugh, DJ Jeffries, Moussa Cisse and more. Although Jeffries and Virginia Tech transfer Landers Nolley didn't have great offensive games, Memphis was still able to win by double digits, which says a lot about this team. Jeffries and Nolley are expected to be the two best scorers on the team, but that doesn't mean Penny Hardaway and the staff don't have multiple players who can catch fire.  With the win over Saint Mary's, the Tigers will be back in action at 11 a.m. CST on Thursday, and they will face the winner of Western Kentucky/Northern Iowa.
