"No top-10 team is playing more marquee games than Memphis. But the interesting thing about the Tigers' schedule is that they got so many of those big games at home. Memphis plays Gonzaga, Tennessee, Georgetown and Arizona at the FedEX Forum. The neutral-court games against Oklahoma, Connecticut and/or Kentucky in New York, as well as USC in the Jimmy V in New York too, gives Memphis a loaded slate. Their only true road game of note is at Cincinnati."

Don't get me wrong, that's a tough schedule. But the highly touted (overrated?) Tigers play most of the guys on their home floor.

No mention of Xavier, who have a very good schedule this season.
