West Region: Arizona Wildcats (5) vs. Memphis Tigers (12) Fri. March 18, 2011 2:45 p.m. EST

It wasn’t all that long ago when the Memphis Tigers (12) were arguably one of the best college basketball programs in the country with superstar point guard Derrick Rose (Chicago Bulls) leading the way on the court and head coach John Calipari (Kentucky Wildcats) getting it done by calling the shots on the sidelines. Ever since D-Rose made the jump to the NBA and Calipari took the head coaches job at Kentucky, the Tigers haven’t exactly been a force to be reckoned with in college basketball, but they will look to change that in the 2011 NCAA Tournament.

On Friday night in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the Memphis Tigers (12) will have their work cut out for them in their first game of the 2011 NCAA Tournament as they will be facing off against a very good Arizona Wildcats (5)  team.

As of right now, the Arizona Wildcats (5) are the favorites to come out on top in this matchup and for good reason. The Wildcats may have missed out on an opportunity to win the Pac-10 title, but they do have a legitimate shot at making a deep run in the 2011 NCAA Tournament if they can get passed the Tigers.

Not only do I believe the Wildcats will beat the Tigers, but they should also cover the -6 point spread.
