How Memphis got here
Nov. 5 vs. Tennessee-Martin 102-71
Nov. 6 vs. Richmond 80-63
Nov. 15 vs. Oklahoma 63-53
Memphis has the eye of the tiger, with every major contributor back except guard Jeremy Hunt, who averaged 14 points per game last season. Add an instant starter in freshman Derrick Rose to an already deep and experienced perimeter, and positions 1 through 3 are as big, athletic and skilled as any team in the country.
