ESPN Upset Special
Wednesday: Houston over Memphis, 8 p.m. ET
The No. 1 Memphis Tigers take the show on the road. The drive and kick offense and suffocating defense have Chris Douglas-Roberts, Robert Dozier, Derrick Rose and Joey Dorsey attacking on both ends of the floor. The Cougars have a great mix of high school, junior college and transfer players with valuable experience. Kelvin Lewis, Rob McKiver and Lanny Smith make up the three guard line up for coach Tom Penders. Lewis, an Auburn transfer, had a career high 17 points against UTEP, McKiver can score from anywhere on the floor and Smith is a quick athletic point that can handle the ball and leads the team in assists. Inside, Tafari Toney and Texas transfer Dion Dowell score and take care of the rebounding. Houston will not be intimidated by the Tigers and might have enough high-major players to keep it interesting at home.
