Rotation #645-646
Memphis/SMU over 143 (loss)
The first meeting this year was a quality basketball game.  Both teams shot the ball well and hit a lot of three pointers.  Memphis was in control with 6 minutes left and it was like a lid went on the basket.  The Tigers scored 0 points in the final 6:01 in the game.  How is that even possible?  SMU went on a 15-0 run to end the game and won by 4.  The Mustangs do a great job at spacing the floor and they hit the three ball as well as any team at home.  Memphis is young and will get beat on a lot of kick out plays for wide open three pointers.  I do think the Tigers are the more talented team, but pulling off a road win against a team 14-1 in this building is going to be tough.  I think we are going to see a ton of three point attempts.  SMU is a great offensive team, but still are weak on defense.  Memphis may indeed be young, but they can finish near the basket.  Look for a high flying offensive game.  Take the Over.
