1 Memphis is in a major tailspin. The Tigers followed up the 19-point drubbing they took from Pitt by losing 65?53 to Ole Miss, which had a 2?4 record. The loss was Memphis?s fourth in its last six games and snapped the Tigers? 24-game home winning streak.
2 Ellis Myles is underrated. Louisville?s 6'7" senior center had just seven points and four rebounds against Florida, but the Cardinals would not have won without the toughness he provided while playing a game-high 39 minutes.
3 Travis Diener is a real gamer. Despite aggravating a sprained right ankle during the first half, Marquette?s 6'1" senior point guard scored 29 points in a 63?54 win over Wisconsin, helping the Golden Eagles improve to 9?0 and raising his scoring average to 21.1.
