The face of the unquestioned leader

The Memphis Tigers' dominance over Conference USA has been amazing to watch over the past seven seasons, as they've won six of the last seven C-USA tourneys.

While they don't have the same fire power as they've had in the past (Derrick Rose, Will Barton, Rodney Carney, John Calipari), Memphis has continued its perennial success, winning 24 or more games seven straight years.

The rest of Conference USA can't hold a candle to those numbers.

Another impressive stat: Memphis is the only team in Conference USA to obtain a win in the NCAA Tournament since Cincinnati, Louisville and Marquette left prior to the 2005-2006 season.

As Memphis enters its last season in Conference USA (before heading to the Big East next year), the Tigers will undoubtedly hold its own and dominate once again in conference play.

Here are the reasons why.
