No. 24 Memphis ready to host No. 23 Gonzaga

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Gonzaga and Memphis square off in a nationally televised, Top 25 showdown with both teams hoping to add a signature win to its resume.

The challenging nonconference matchup comes just before the No. 23 Zags and 24th-ranked Tigers hit stretch runs in their respective conferences.

The two teams played each other six straight seasons from 2005-06 to 2010-11, with Memphis winning five of those games. During that stretch, the matchup was a much-needed test for the teams; Gonzaga was dominating the West Coast Conference while Memphis reigned over Conference USA at the time.

Gonzaga (21-3) leads the West Coast Conference again this season. Memphis (17-5) has a 7-3 in league record in its first year in the American Athletic Conference.
