It’s very rare to say the season is near and end for at team that was Top 10 at one point.
While SMU has fallen off a bit, they are still a clear cut tournament team, but because of postseason ban, the Mustangs will have just a few games left in their season.
As for Memphis, they’ve completely fallen off the wagon and will need to likely win the conference tournament if they have any hope of going dancing this season.
The Mustangs will still try to send a message despite their postseason ban. They’ll look to move into a first place tie with Temple, as they vie for a regular season AAC crown.
SMU can really send a message to everyone who felt like the ban was necessary by winning the regular season title. SMU clearly let the ban get to their head as they were once on cruise control for a conference title, but lost 4 of their last 8 games to slip below Temple for the time being.
SMU will now try to right the ship on the road, as they’ve dropped 3 of 4 with their only win coming against USF who is quite terrible.
Senior guard Nic Moore has been giving everything he has, knowing these are his last few games in an SMU uniform. He’ll look to leave his legacy on his senior season despite all the drama.
Moore leads the team with 16.8 points and 5.3 assists as he continues to tear the opposition apart. The problem for him and the Mustangs has been that he hasn’t had any support.
The Tigers have fallen into 7th place in the AAC and they’ve really ruined any chance at getting an at large bid.
The 15-12 Tigers have lost 7 of their last 10 and have been a horrendous bet for backers. Memphis has gone just 9-15 ATS this season and 5-10 ATS at home.
It’s been the defense that has been the absolute difference for Memphis. During their 10 game span, they’ve allowed 84.1 points against in the 7 losses.
In their 3 wins, the defense has held the opposition to just 67 points.
The three teams below the Tigers (USF, ECU, and Tulane) have all beaten Memphis this season as this team just hasn’t been able to get stops. They allowed USF to get their first home win as they allowed 80 points to them in an 80-71 loss.

Free SMU Mustangs vs. Memphis Tigers CBB Prediction:
Memphis has really given away this season and is pretty much playing right now for a better seed as their resume won’t even be looked at.
However, picking up steam and gaining some momentum is important or them as they will likely need to go through many top teams earlier in the tournament.
Here though, SMU is just too much. The Mustangs are playing their final games here and will give everything they have.
