What to Know

Get ready for an American Athletic battle as the Memphis Tigers and the East Carolina Pirates will face off at 9 p.m. ET on Thursday at FedExForum. Memphis will be strutting in after a victory while East Carolina will be stumbling in from a loss.

The Tigers came out on top in a nail-biter against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane on Sunday, sneaking past 83-81. Kudos to the oddsmakers for accurately forecasting both the winner and the close margin. Forward Josh Minott was the offensive standout of the game for Memphis, picking up 18 points along with nine rebounds. Minott hadn’t helped his team much against the SMU Mustangs last week, so this was a nice turnaround for him. Minott’s points were the most he has had all year.

Meanwhile, East Carolina was pulverized by the Houston Cougars 79-36 on Saturday. Guard Tristen Newton had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with 14 points on 2-for-11 shooting and turning the ball over four times in his 32 minutes on the court.

This next contest looks promising for Memphis, who are favored by a full 11.5 points. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past six games, so buyers beware.

In the teams’ previous meeting earlier this month, the Tigers and the Pirates were neck-and-neck, but Memphis came up empty-handed after a 72-71 defeat. Maybe Memphis will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
