ENEMY LINES an opposing coach's view
Conference USA is a different league after losing the likes of Louisville, Cincinnati and Marquette, so I think Memphis can take advantage of that.... If Shawne Williams plays well enough this year, he's a guy who can put his name in the NBA draft next June and get picked.... Joey Dorsey plays big and physical.... They're very talented but also young, and when you depend on young guys, things can go either way.
