The Memphis Tigers: How Good Can They Be?



The Tigers pounded Seton Hall Friday night, 84-70. ESPN's Dana O'Neill was impressed:

The all-blue uniforms are fitting. Memphis keeps coming with the same regularity as the waves crashing outside the Coliseo de Puerto Rico.

Talented veteran after hyped rookie, shooter after scorer, fast break after dunk, it's an endless sea of blue that had Seton Hall calling for the Dramamine in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. The undermanned and exhausted Pirates were no match for the Smurfs on speed as Memphis romped to an 84-70 win that wasn't even that close.

But John Calipari didn't come to the Caribbean to sit back and admire the view. Calipari came here to find out what he's got. He has talent, a sickening largesse of it; he has speed, track meet style speed and he has hard workers.

What can it all add up to?
