The 21st-ranked Memphis Tigers, at 2-1 on the year, will look to get another one in the ‘W’ column on Thursday when they take on the 2-4 Siena Saints as part of the Old Spice Classic.
After being torched by Marcus Smart and Oklahoma State last week, Memphis rebounded by defeating Nicholls State a few days ago. Head coach Josh Pastner believes that the Okie State loss helped with their humility against Nicholls, and may prove worthy moving forward as well:
“I think this year with us getting our butts handed to us a week ago, guys understand the humbleness,” Pastner said.
This team having their heads on straight will come in handy when they take on this 2-4 Siena team. As they try and piece everything together since the wake-up call against Oklahoma State, the last thing this team needs is another setback, especially a pointless one.
