Obviously, not having James and Lester hurts, but Memphis (if Malco can eat up a few minutes) still has the ability to make UTk work for 40 minutes.

Kenpom has them 351 out of 353 teams in bench minutes. Not a lot of height either.

It matters for seed purposes. But I understand what you’re saying.

In a perfect world where every team always played their best game I agree with you.

But when you are 1 seed you don't have to be your best to get the second weekend and you may get lucky and not see a top 4 seed until the Elite 8.

Yup ya'll are correct. But we can afford to let this team grow a bit without doing too much damage to our seeding. Hopefully ha.
