Headed to UAB-Memphis tonight

Posted on: February 16, 2011 11:32 am
 
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- I've got a column about the competitiveness of Conference USA filed that should be posted shortly. Then tonight I'm headed to FedExForum to watch UAB and Memphis play a game that will launch the winner to the top of the league standings (provided Southern Miss handles UTEP tonight in Hattiesburg).

Also: This game represents the (expected) return of Wesley Witherspoon.

Witherspoon, a 6-foot-9 wing, hasn't played since being suspended Jan. 13 for mocking an assistant coach on a team bus after the Tigers lost at SMU. The suspension was lifted after two games. But Witherspoon was then sidelined with what was described as a "soar" knee, and, needless to say, it might be the most curious sore knee in the history of Memphis basketball considering there were no indications that it was sore before the suspension. Either way, Witherspoon has practiced the past two days and should be in uniform tonight. Whether he'll play is another matter altogether, though, because the Tigers have been better without him. They are 10-4 with him, 9-2 without him this season. So minutes of any kind aren't guaranteed.

Gary were you trying to be funny with "soar," or are you just an idiot?
