The Tigers had their two-game winning streak snapped by Tulsa in their last game and will try to bounce back from the loss with a win over the Mustangs, which will give them their third win in their last four games.

Memphis has played well offensively, averaging 74.7 points per game. The team is shooting 45 percent from the field and 32 percent from three-point range. They finished with 40 points in their last game and will need a much better offensive performance if they want to beat the Mustangs.
