Tigers Ready For #1 Arizona in RPI

When the 2nd ranked Memphis Tigers take on Arizona tomorrow night....they'll be playing team that's actually ranked higher than they are. In the very important RPI category that is.   The Arizona Wildcats are the top ranked RPI team in the country. They're 8-2 record is good for 17th overall. But taking into account their strength of schedule so far...they're #1 and the Tigers are #2.

"I don't now what that means but...their offense...they were down 20 to Texas AM, a top 10 team, and came back to beat them by 13.  And that was when they were down 20 late in the first half," said Tigers head coach John Calipari.

The Wildcats are explosive alright, led by 6'8" shooting guard Chase Budinger. It's a 9pm tip off Saturday night at FedExForum.
