Memphis is safe and Southern Miss should be just fine on Selection Sunday, but that leaves 10 teams that are placing every last hope they have in the season in this tourney. 

The greatest aspect of this time of year is all the young athletes laying it all on the line. the Conference USA Tourney will have these teams double their efforts for the chance to get to the big dance. 

Here is all the information you need on an underrated good time.

Prediction

Memphis over Tulsa

Memphis is by far the strongest and deepest team headed into the tournament. The only thing that could provide an upset is a Memphis team resting on their laurels after securing a win. 

I don't see this hungry squad taking anything for granted, and should win out in this topsy-turvy tourney.
