UCONN travels to Memphis to take on the Tigers in a big match up in the AAC.
Memphis has dreams of winning the AAC title, well UCONN just needs a win to try and get something positive out of this season.
UConn won last years meeting 72-58.
The story of this season for the Huskies has been injuries. They were expected to compete for the AAC title, and be a force in March until the injury bug hit and has ruined their season.
They lost their second and fourth leading scorers to season ending injuries and that has really made scoring points hard for the Huskies.
The Huskies are currently led by Jalen Adams who is averaging 16.8 points per game.
The Huskies also don’t have a true point guard which has made life really difficult. For them to have any chance to win, they have to play a slow pace and use up most of the shot clock to stay in games.
Over the last three games the Huskies have only averaged 57 points per game.
They have took two of the last three games into overtime which is a win in itself. They are keeping games close with the slow pace and will look to do the same against Memphis.
First year coach Tubby Smith has led the Tigers to a 10-4 record and already have some impressive wins.
They have beat the likes of South Carolina, Oklahoma, and Iowa. This is the first game of the AAC schedule and the Tigers will look to get out on the right foot.
Tubby likes the Tigers to push the pace. They average 81.1 points per game, which is good enough for 45th in the country.
The Tigers are led by Sophomore guard Dedric Lawson. He is averaging 20.6 points, 11.1 rebounds, and 3.9 assists.
For Memphis to guarantee the win against the Huskies they need to push the pace. They have way more offensive firepower then the Huskies and if they push the pace they will run UCONN out of the gym.
