Oregon Ducks vs. Memphis Tigers

Where: Moda Center, Portland, OR

When: Tuesday, November 12, 9:00 PM. ET.

The Memphis Tigers will be going for their third consecutive win when they take on the Oregon Ducks in Phil Knight Invitational on Tuesday night.

Ducks Going For Third Consecutive Win

The Ducks are off to a good start this season, but they haven’t been challenged in their first two games, easily defeating both of their opponents. They will have a tougher go of it on Tuesday against a talented Memphis team that is hoping to make a deep NCAA tournament run this year.

Oregon has played well offensively this season, averaging 88.5 points per game. The team is shooting 55.8 percent from the field and 43.8 percent from three-point range.

Payton Pritchard has been the top scorer for the Ducks, averaging 21.5 points per game. He is also averaging 6.5 rebounds and seven assists per game for the Ducks.

Anthony Mathis is averaging 19.5 points and two rebounds per game, while Chris Duarte is averaging 11.5 points, six rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game.

Oregon has also played well defensively, holding opponents to 66 points per game. They will find out just how good they are on the defensive end when they play the Tigers, who are averaging over 90 points per game.

Tigers Rallying Around Star Freshman

The Tigers got some bad news last week when the NCAA declared that freshman sensation James Wiseman was ineligible because his family received financial assistance from head coach Penny Hardaway when he coached Wiseman in AAU.

The team was able to get a restraining order that allowed him to play in their last game and will have to wait until a November 18 hearing to find out if they will have their star for the remainder of the season. Even though the NCAA had declared Wiseman eligible in March, the decision could affect the team’s national title hopes if it is upheld.

With Wiseman on the court, the Tigers continued their strong play and pulled off a 92-46 win over UIC in their last game. They are shooting 56.7 percent from the field and 42.6 percent from three-point range.

Wiseman leads the Tigers with 22.5 points, 10 rebounds, and four blocks per game. Boogie Ellis is averaging 15 points and two assists per game, while Precious Achiuwa is averaging 12 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.

The Tigers have also done a great job on the defensive end, holding opponents to 55 points per game. They will face a tough test from the Ducks but will pick up the win if they continue to play well defensively.
