Thank you, Wake Forest.

By beating Duke late Sunday you managed to make next weekend's showdown bigger than it was already going to be, and it was already going to be super huge. Now, it's going to be super duper huge. Because barring some voting irregularities the top two teams in the rankings will meet Saturday at FedExForum.

It should be No. 1 Memphis vs. No. 2 Tennessee.

It should be two rivals with a combined record of 48-2.

It should be no wonder that the asking price for courtside seats is up to $10,000 each.

UT has the #1 rpi and top 5 in SOS.  Maybe they didnt play UNC, DUKE ect but The teams they have played and beaten were pretty good.  Just going buy the numbers.  And UT is just as bad at free throws.  Thats why all the experts say if they let them play it will be a 100-102 game.  If they call it tight it will be a 45-47 game.  GO VOLS

i don't know about best two teams in the country.  both are great and don't get me wrong, i think they deserve to be 1 & 2 tomorrow.  but, i'd like to see UT play someone like kansas, duke, unc, ucla, and see how they compete.  when they played texas they got drilled.  i think memphis is definitely there.  if i was pearl my strategy would be foul, foul, foul, foul.  no easy baskets.  memphis is horrible at the charity stripe.
