Henderson-Niles no longer on Memphis team

Josh Pastner announced Monday that Pierre Henderson-Niles is no longer a Memphis Tiger.

"As I told the team, I have a soft spot for Pierre, and I really want to see him do well," Pastner said. "He's a fine young man, and I am proud of how hard he worked to get in shape to play this season and also how hard he worked in the classroom so that he can graduate in May. Moving forward, we will do all we can for Pierre as he finishes up the academic work toward completing his degree. We wish Pierre nothing but the best."

A source told CBSSports.com that Henderson-Niles' often poor attitude is the root of the problem, but the source still described this development as a "mutual decision." The source insisted there was no off-the-court incident that triggered things.

This leaves Memphis with just one true post player (Will Coleman) for the rest of the season.

The Tigers play UCF on Wednesday night.

Sanchez (or something) isn't impressed by Memphis

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- For those of you into fun storylines, I recommend Memphis vs. Maryland. Why? Because these teams have been trading shots for 24 hours -- shots that included Greivis Vasquez telling reporters that Memphis would finish with a losing record in the ACC. Of course, that might mean something to Memphis if all the Memphis players even knew Vasquez's name.

"I know they got a good player -- I don't know his name -- but he good or whatever, so we just going to try to do what we do and stop him," Memphis forward Pierre Henderson-Niles told The Washington Post . "I ain't never seen them; I know they got one good player, Sanchez or something like that; whatever his name is."

Sanchez or something?


Man, this is going to be fun.

Tip-off is set for 3:20 p.m. ET.
