Mississippi Valley State got smoked 76-25 by Washington State in its opener, things don't get any easier in Norman, where Oklahoma drilled American 83-54 in its opener. Sooners are picked 6th nationally by Blue Ribbon, despite losing three starters from LY's 23-12 team.

UAB is really good, expected to give Memphis its first challenge in long time in C-USA; Blazers beat Troy by 21 in their opener. Santa Clara is young but improving; they have three starters back from 15-16 team in Keating's first year. This is their season opener.

Arizona has had ton of chaos in last year, with three different coaches, eligibility issues that still linger, but their starting five is still very good. Florida Atlantic has new coach in Mike Jarvis, so they're winning any tactical battles. No idea what or who Arizona brings to table here.

Siena won Bracket Buster game at Boise State LY, they have all five starters back from team that upset Vanderbilt in first round of NCAA's; they're #1 pick in MAAC. Boise has very long road trip here, is picked to finish 6th in WAC after losing four starters from LY's team.

Marist lost by hoop at Rutgers in its opener under new coach; they've got one starter back from LY's 18-14 team, are picked 9th in MAAC, but Rutgers game might be good indicator. St Bonaventure won opener vs Robert Morris; they're picked to finish 12th in A-14 this year.

Chattanooga got crushed by 39 in its opener against Tennessee; now it is another pressing team, Missouri. Tigers won opener vs Prairie View by 21- they have weird roster, with five freshmen, five seniors, and couple other newcomers. Missouri is picked to finish 8th in Big 12.

Re: NCAA News and Notes Monday 11/17

Massachusetts (1-1, 0-1 ATS) at (13) Memphis (1-0 SU and ATS)

John Calipari and his Tigers host the coach’s former school when the Minutemen visit Memphis in a non-conference matchup.

Calipari coached in Massachusetts from 1988-1996 and led the school to five straight Atlantic 10 titles and NCAA Tournaments, including a Final Four appearance in 1996. Now in his eighth campaign in Memphis, Calipari has led the Tigers to the Big Dance in five of the last six years, including making it to the national title game last year before losing to Kansas 75-68 in overtime.

Memphis (38-2, 18-18-2 ATS in 2007-08) lost its two leading scorers in Chris Douglas-Roberts and Derrick Rose to the NBA, but is still favored to win Conference USA. The Tigers opened Saturday with a 90-63 blowout win over Fairfield in the first round of the Puerto Rico Tip-off Tournament, cashing as 21-point favorites. Four of Memphis’ five starters scored in double digits, with Shawn Taggart leading the way with 14 points and 12 rebounds.

The Tigers opened last season with a 26-game winning streak (13-11-2 ATS) before losing at home to Tennessee, then the Tigers won 12 more in a row (5-7 ATS) before the loss in the national title game. Memphis went 18-1 at the FedEx Forum last year, but just 10-8-1 ATS.

UMass (25-11, 17-15-1 ATS last year) reached the NIT championship game at Madison Square Garden in April, falling to Ohio State 92-85 in the title tilt as three-point pups. The Minutemen rattled off four wins to get the final, going 3-1 ATS in the process, and they finished 11-8 on the highway (11-7 ATS).

First-year Minutemen coach Derek Kellogg played for Calipari at UMass and was his assistant at Memphis the last eight seasons. Kellogg easily won his debut Tuesday, pounding Arkansas-Monticello 90-71 in an un-lined contest, but fell Wednesday 80-73 at Southern Illinois, blowing a nine-point halftime lead and failing as five-point underdogs.

UMass is just 1-6 ATS in its last seven Monday games, while the Tigers are just 1-8 ATS in their last nine on Mondays and 2-7 ATS in their last nine after a spread-cover. However, Memphis is 4-1 ATS in its last five overall and 4-1 ATS in its last five non-conference games.

For the Minutemen, the over is 20-9-1 in their last 30 non-conference games and 12-5 in their last 17 after a non-cover. For Memphis, the over is on runs of 6-1 overall, 5-1 at home, 4-1 against teams from the Atlantic 10 and 6-1 in non-conference games.

ATS ADVANTAGE: OVER
