Temple will likely be the #1 seed in the AAC tournament and will look to make sure that is the case when they welcome in the Memphis Tigers on Thursday night.
Temple is still in question for an at large bid, making every game still very important as a slip up now would look bad in front of the committee.
As for Memphis, they simply need to win the AAC tourney as it is their only entrance to the NCAA tournament.
The Memphis Tigers have been a rather disappointment this season.
Memphis is likely destined for the NIT or even CIT, unless they can pull off an epic run during the AAC tournament. The Tigers can do no better than the 6th seed, but they can fall back to the pack with a couple losses to close the season out, making it very important to steal a win.
The Tigers limp into this one as they have dropped 4 of their last 6, but come in off a solid win over Tulsa.
It was Shaq Goodwin who played the biggest role, going for 28 points and 11 rebounds in the victory. Dedric Lawson also contributed a double double in the win, which marked the 7th straight game he’s done so.
The Temple Owls will likely be the 1 seed in the AAC tournament thanks to SMU being ineligible for postseason play.
However, with just an 18-10 record, Temple wants to leave nothing in the hands of the committee. A slip up down the stretch, especially at home, or a short stint in the tournament, could really cause some question marks to raise on them.
A lot of emotions will be running high with Senior Day upon the Owls. Temple will honor 4 Seniors, which includes their leading point getting, 3 point shooter, and rebounder. Temple will lose a lot after this season, making this one of their best chances to make a push in the tournament.
Temple will also be looking for a bit of revenge here. Back in earlier January, the Owls fell in Memphis 67-65, which could count as a bad loss for their resume. A sweep from them would be a devastating feat.
