14. Memphis: The best news all offseason was that coach John Capliari is staying put. The bad news is the Tigers lost Rodney Carney, Shawne Williams, and Darius Washington, three players that combined for 43 points a night. They may not be a #1 seed again or advance into the Elite Eight again, but they should be the powerhouse in Conference USA again. Memphis does have a trio of talented sophomores in Chris Douglas Roberts, Antonio Anderson, and Robert Dozier. I think they’re a bit overrated in this poll, they should probably be in the 20s somewhere. I wouldn’t expect this team to win 33 games again but Capliari is going to keep them at the top of Conference USA.
