What you need to know about Memphis

The Tigers managed to escape with a 67-64 win over the Tulsa Golden Hurricane to pick up their second AAC victory of the season last week. Earl Timberlake and Malcolm Dandridge led the scoring for the Tigers with 12 points apiece, and Timberlake also pulled down eight rebounds in the win. Both players saw an expanded role due to the Tigers’ health concerns and played well above their season averages.

Memphis center Jalen Duren (hip) and forward Deandre Williams (back) are both questionable for Sunday’s contest. If they aren’t able to go, the Tigers will need others to step up and replace their combined 22.4 points and 12.8 rebounds. As head coach Anfernee Hardaway has had to shuffle his rotation, his team’s chemistry has suffered a bit, and Memphis leads the nation in turnovers on offense with 18.4 per game. That could make it difficult for the Tigers to widen the margin against the Bearcats, who only turn the ball over 10.1 times per game this season.

What you need to know about Cincinnati

The Bearcats didn’t face too much resistance from SMU at home this past Thursday in a 77-60 win. David DeJulius was one of the most active players for Cincinnati, finishing with 22 points and six assists. Dejulius has been the Bearcats’ top playmaker this season on offense, averaging 12.8 points per game. Junior guard Jeremiah Davenport is right behind him with 12.5 points per contest. Davenport is also the co-leader on the glass for the Bearcats with 5.1 rebounds per game.

Cincinnati’s defense has been strong this season, and the Bearcats have held opponents to just 36.9 percent shooting from the field. They also average 4.3 blocks this season, led by forward Abdul Ado, who swats 1.5 shots per game.
