Tigers Basketball Ranking Up, But is Confidence Too High?

The Memphis Tigers Basketball team moves up 1 to 11th in the Nation according to both this week's AP and the Coaches poll.

The team is preparing for Wednesday's showdown with 16th ranked UCLA in the NIT Season Tip Off Classic at New York.

After resounding wins over Alabama and UW-Milwaukee, U of M coach John Calipari is battling to keep his players heads from getting too big.

< Coach Cal says Sunday was one of the worst practices we've ever had. The reason was I gave them 2 days off....I don't know what I was thinking. They were lazy apathetic, don't tell me you think you're good!>

Game time Wednesday for the Tigers and UCLA is at 8pm at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Top Ranked Duke faces Drexel in the other N-I-T Final.
