Tennessee vs. Memphis Preview

The rest of the Tigers' points will come from new faces.  The Barton Bros. - 6'6" Will and 6'2" Antonio - lead the Tigers in scoring and three point shooting, respectively.  Will Barton combines with Witherspoon to give the Tigers two bigger players who can really do a number of things well, and both fill up the stat sheet.  Memphis also relies heavily on local kids, as usual:  Joe Jackson from White Station, Tarik Black from Ridgeway, and Chris Crawford from Sheffield are all instant contributors.  Other than Kentucky, Memphis had the best recruiting class in the nation (though both took a hit without Enes Kanter and Jelan Kendrick):  five of their top seven scorers are freshmen.
