It’s a shame those two games are at the same time.

I will be pleasantly surprised if the Tigers win by double digits. Presently, Vegas has Memphis winning by eight and KP shows a six point Tiger victory.

If we lose then i can finally let go of the at-large hopes and enjoy the season for what it is- an injury-riddled dissapointment.

Hah. We feel your pain.

Part of me wants a 4/5 UCF-SMU “Pride Bowl” game at the AAC tourney.
The other part says that, at this point, that game involves neither of us.

RE: 2/3 AAC Basketball Games
To all UConn fans: UC fans would like to thank Coach Ollie for not granting Cane Broome a scholarship when he was transferring but instead directed him to UC, once again much appreciated. You just can't have enough 1,000 point scorers.

This is the closest thing we have to rivalry in this conference and rivalry games never go as you expect

Don't disagree that since we joined the old Big East UConn has become a rival of sorts due to some big games that we've played against them. But, don't forget that we have quite the history with Memphis that goes back a long time through several conferences.
When they right their ship, (notice I said "when" and not "if") the rivalry with Memphis will come more to the forefront.

FWIW, all time head-to-head the Cats have played the Tigers 76 times. The only teams we've played more are Louisville (91), Saint Louis (78) and Xavier (78). We've played Connecticut 24 times but 22 of them has been during the Mick Cronin era.

I was going to bring that up to him, but you beat me to it. Problem is, since we rejoined forces, we haven't really lived up to our part of the rivalry yet.

I will be shocked if you guys don't turn it around soon. Talk about a passionate fan base and a great basketball city. Heck, the Memphis board has quite the following. There sure are some "unhappy" folks over there these days. 03-lmfao

Looking at the AAC Standings, I'm thinking Memphis fans need to root for all 3 visiting teams today.
