John Calipari and his Memphis Tigers will receive several video game consoles. Come January, the legitimate national title contender will need better competition than their schedule provides. Perhaps simulating challenging basketball games on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii will keep the Tigers motivated.
