The nation’s best defense on the fewest points surrendered per possession belongs to Memphis, and the Tigers will look to continue those efforts on Sunday against a Cincinnati team that have won six of their last seven games The Bearcats will play without their main agent David DeJulius, who signed off from the rest of the season before the final game against Tulane. He had given the team 10 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game while only making two sales per game.
Cincinnati is 313rd in the country in 3-point shooting this season and has only one player who averages more than five rebounds and two assists per game. On the positive side, the Bearcats have admitted 71 points fewer on defense in eight of their ten games this calendar year.
Memphis was unable to take care of the ball on offense and turned it up 22.2 percent of its possessions to, which ranks 322nd nationwide. But the Tigers also make 22.4 percent of their defense holdings in revenue, which is 19th.
With both teams outside the top 220 for points per possession and Memphis ranked for rebound rate 20, two Sunday offenses don’t have many clean ways to light the scoreboard.
