Alabama Crimson Tide at Memphis Tigers Tuesday, December 14, 2021
We saw a couple of big games this past weekend and some really high-intensity games. We had a few upsets this past week and a ton of really good games. The conference slate is starting to creep into the picture for a majority of teams, and now is when the real basketball gets underway.
This is going to be a very good week of basketball leading up to the holiday. There are a few really good conference matchups this week. If we have learned anything so far is that no team is safe this year.
We will take a look at five games from this upcoming week and break down the matchup and who has the edge coming into the game.
The Alabama Crimson Tide and the Memphis Tigers meet in what should be a really good game. Alabama has been playing great basketball so far this season, while Memphis is a really solid team but has struggled recently.
Alabama is ranked #9 in the country with just one loss so far on their schedule. Memphis is 5-3 on the season but has lost a couple of really tough games. They got up to as high as #9 on the year so far this season.
Alabama will rely on Jaden Shackelford to do the scoring for them as he scores 19.3 points a game. He will be the main cog for Alabama in the game. Memphis is a little more well-rounded as they are led by Emoni Bates, who scores 11.5 points a game. I look for this one to be a high-scoring contest, and I would be leaning towards Memphis at home.
