Both of these teams are looking to use this tournament to say me too. They will need to start with a win and perhaps even get another one or two to make the conference finals.
As you can see by the line this is expected to be a close match. They split the two regular season games between the two with both teams winning at home. Can coach Tubby Smith parlay all that experience into a good result.
Memphis was probably in…two weeks ago. The struggled badly the last couple of weeks dropping 4 of their last five including getting run off the floor at SMU. They might have to win the whole thing to be frank.
Dedric Lawson is one of the best players that nobody talks about. He is thisclose to averaging 20/10 in a legit power forward body that has NBA scouts drooling.
He can shoot it a little bit from the outside.
He and his brother K.J. are a very productive frontcourt duo. K.J. does not have the same ceiling as his brother but averaging 12/8 is certainly no slouch.
Dedric seems likely to go pro after a super sophomore season. That might put a little extra urgency into this one, a game Memphis needs if Tubby want to take yet another team to the Tourney.
UCF has already reached that magic 20 win plateau but they they might need to do some more work if they are going to punch their ticket for the Big Dance.
It would be a shame not to see one of the biggest players in the game at that event.
That would be Tacko Fall, all 7’6″ 300 pounds of him. Just a sophomore he has increased his scoring and rebounding. Amazingly he is making 72% of his shots from the field.
He only blocks a few shots per game but his impact is significant.
B.J. Taylor is the leading scorer for the Knights at 17ppg. He and Matt Williams are a pretty prolific backcourt averaging 32ppg. Neither is a great shooter though allowing teams to sag on Fall.
UCF is a strong defensive team and probably underrated overall. Fall get a lot of attention but the players around him are not scrubs.
They can be a factor in the AAC tournament.

Free Memphis Tigers vs. UCF Knights NCAAB Prediction:
This definitely looks like a close game. Each team has its strengths and it would be a surprise if it was not in doubt over the last few minutes of the game. The winner gets some momentum going forward.
Look for a rugged game without much flow. Both of these teams have yet to play in the tournament and will be in an unfamiliar venue. It could look a little ragged early.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UCF -1.5
I like Fall to be a difference maker and UCF to come out on top.
