Alright, on to Memphis forreal this time. They're down and don't have their normal talent, but they're still good enough. The mids they struggled against so far this year were also missing their leading scorers when they played them.
Jeremiah Martin (PG) takes the most shots for them. 45.8% have been from deep, he's hit 40.9% of them. About 1/3 of his shots are at the rim, but only 5% of those are assisted on so it would appear when he gets there it's from taking his defender off the dribble from the perimeter.
Jamal Johnson has taken 76.4% of his 55 attempts so far from deep (has hit 35.7%) so he's the guy to run off of the three point line and 86.7% of them have been assisted. Other than that there's a couple of other guys who take a higher percentage of their shots from deep, but they haven't hit them at anything close to a good clip.
Kyvon Davenport is another guy to watch, stretch big who's taken the second most shots on the team, Jimario Rivers is their big who plays more like a true big.
Their attendance has been way down this season according to Gary Parrish so I don't know what to expect atmosphere wise.

We're expecting Bob and Jali to make some serious noise tonight in the arena

Biggest test of the season thus far and there is still more activity on that $iena thread. That series is over until they make a call to us end of story. Benson should not be the one to initiate anything.
Lets get that check tonight and steal a W.

I want to see a competitive game with a chance to win at the end of the game. They are still Memphis so I think they'd beat us 9 times if we played them 10 times. I will be disappointed if we get blown out by 20+ though.
Yes they're no where near the Memphis of past, but I think your still underestimating the level of athletes that are in the AAC and the America East.
