    Before you start bashing stats, get them right. Louisville won by 7 points - 79-72.

    Memphis just barely won their opener, are they overated? Maybe Louisville just had their wake up call?
    Louisville plays great defense, when they get behind Pitino has them crank up the D and they get on some good runs.

    That's what it was then. Standard definition + TV picture concaving (going out soon) = 70-72.

    And the difference between Lou and Memph is that Memphis is actually a great team. Not just a bunch of athletes that play basketball.

    Louisville has to be a pretty good team to win the Big East reg season and tourney. It's not a cupcake league like Conf USA, or the SEC.

    I've only seen them play during the Big East tourney, and they look like a very talented team with depth, but sometimes they seem to slip into cruise control, but kick up the D when they need to. I would not be concerned to see them trail every game they play, but I'd give them the best chance to go all the way.

    Big East had about 2 teams I'd place above most CUSA teams. They were barely edging those teams out too while Memphis was winning by 30 a lot of nights.
    I hope Louisville and Memphis meet. Kill them dead.

    A full court press doesn't affect Memphis. Ask Maryland. You press up front, they'll just snowball it down the court for easy buckets.
    Mizzou could beat them though.

    missouri is also very balanced...against marquette i think they ended up having five guys with ten or more points...with memphis, they rely on two players...one a freshman. shut down evans and memphis is screwed i think.

    Eh?? Dozier, Taggart, Evans, Anderson and Sallie can all drop 20 any given night. Then kids like Kent will kill you if left open. They've got a ton of depth.

    Evans - 16.6 ppg
    Dozier - 12.7 ppg
    Taggart - 10.5 ppg
    Antonio Anderson - 10.0 ppg
    Doneal Mack - 8.9 ppg

    Meanwhile, Mizzou only has 2 players that average double figures in scoring.
