Projection: likely out

Memphis is teetering on the edge of the bubble, primarily due to a mixed bag of results and a less-than-stellar defense that has struggled to contain opponents. They've pulled off some crucial wins, like the one against a highly respected Clemson squad and a victory over Virginia, which likely resonates with the committee. However, losses to lesser-regarded teams in conference play, such as South Florida and Rice, weigh down their resume. The last games against UAB and particularly against FL Atlantic, one of the stronger teams this season, hold significant weight. A win in these games, especially on the road against a tough FL Atlantic team, could provide a much-needed boost. Conversely, a loss, especially a bad one, could be the death knell. The Tigers have been walking the tightrope all season – and their fate might be determined in the final performances leading into Selection Sunday.
