It's been an up and down year for the Tigers as they find themselves in first place in CUSA with 20 games left, but on the bubble for an NCAA. We're coming off a sweep at UAB, following three straight losses.

After losing six games to teams outside the top-100, Memphis has fought their way back onto the NCAA "Bubble". But, this team can't afford another bad mid-week loss. The Tigers will also likely need around 7-9 more Conference wins with 15 CUSA games remaining.

Will this be hard? Yes, but the team is capable. They've played great on the weekends and if they can take care of business on Tuesday and Wednesday's for the rest of the season, they make find themselves in a regional for the second time in five seasons.

One interesting note, after 36 games, the Tigers have the same record as the 2007 team, 22-14. That team finished the regular season with an 11-9 record to go 33-23 before the conference Tournament. With the new format, I think this team needs to go at least 12-8 possibly 13-7. The 2007 also finished 12-12 in the league tied for fourth. My gut feeling is that we'll need a 13-11/14-10 type finished and a top three.
