It wasn’t too long ago that Uconn made an epic run in the NCAA tournament. Winning a conference title would certainly give them the momentum going forward as they get set to take on Memphis in the AAC Final on Sunday afternoon.
The Huskies and Tigers both needed to upset teams to get here and while Uconn likely has an at large bid in their pocket, the Tigers will need a championship to find their way into the tourney.
Memphis just did not have a good enough non conference schedule, along with their struggles in conference play this season. A few more wins and resume builders would have them locked in for at least an large, but still, they control their own destiny in terms of the NCAA tourney.
A win here would put them in and their recent hot streak shows a lot of potential for that happening.
In their last 3 games, the offense has really stepped up. Memphis has averaged 82 points during that span, as they’ve had no problem creating their own shots and getting to the basket.
Their defense has also been swarming. They forced 18 turnovers against Tulane in the semi finals, something they must do in this one. Getting extra possessions and forcing the Huskies in to some tough shots is a must, as Uconn has been on fire from the field lately.
Uconn should have enough on their resume to have clinched a tourney spot.
However, they can remove all doubt here with a win and with their success against the Tigers this season, that is a very realistic option.
The Huskies have won both matchups so far with the Tigers, which includes a 20 point win on the road in Memphis last time these two teams met. Uconn has been a force on both ends of the floor in the matchups, but the defense really stepped up last time. They held Memphis to just 57 points and under 40% shooting.
While Uconn missed the tourney last season, they are certainly hungry to get back. The Huskies won the NCAA championship in 2011 and in 2014 as their experience level is one of the best.
