Former teammates Andre Hollins and Joe Jackson will face off in what should be the most interesting match-up of the game. In 2009 these two lead White Station High School to the school's fifth state title. Jackson was the point guard with Hollins playing off guard that season before Andre moved to point the following year when Jackson graduated.

The Gophers will need to be prepared to defend the dribble-drive offense. Memphis is not going to shoot a ton of threes, but they do try to get into the lane and score. Only about 20% of their points come from three and they only attempted 7 threes in their VCU loss. They do not turn the ball over much so Minnesota should also be prepared to run their half-court offense.

I hope that we have put the Duke game behind us. Learn from it and now we move on to another ranked team. Memphis is a top 20 team and this will be a resume win. The Duke loss is over and in the long run it won't hurt us. Leave it behind and get a ranked win this afternoon.
