Memphis has an NBA coaching staff that runs an NBA style offense with lots of isolation. I think our defense could frustrate them at times.

Looks like Memphis is a 11.5 - 12.5 point favorite. Oh well, Xavier was a 9 point favorite and we beat them by 12. Using the same math, I guess it means we'll beat Memphis by 9.

I noticed the line is 62.5-75. After the first game, our defense has held the opponent under their predicted points in every game. Kennesaw: predicted 63, scored 73 (+10)
Oregon State: predicted 71, scored 50 (-21)
Alabama St: predicted 62, scored 60 (-2)
Grambling St: predicted 61, scored 47 (-14)
Xavier: predicted 73, scored 70 (-3)

So, for the season we are holding opponents to 6 points under the Vegas prediction line while scoring 2 points less than our predicted points. If that holds true tomorrow, the final score is 61-69 instead of the predicted score of 63-75. We are shooting better and playing good defense so I will go with the upset: Clones win 75-73

McKay was probably 5X better than Conditt. I don’t remember McKay ever being a huge liability in fouling. Hoiberg teams just generally didn’t foul very much, possibly to their detriment.
Humm.......not many fouls. Not much focus on defense. I think I see the connection Mr Obvious.
