Could this be the year the University of Memphis basketball program makes it back to the Final Four?

College basketball's Memphis Tigers are preparing to enter the regular season as the last of their exhibition games wraps up against Christian Brothers University, tonight.  The Tigers begin the season against potential NCAA tournament qualifier Belmont and continue their early season competition at the Maui Invitational against Michigan.  Then, the Tigers take on Duke or Tennessee to finish their stint in Hawaii.

It's the second year for Josh Pastner's heralded 2010 recruiting class, which included Joe Jackson and the Barton brothers, among others.  Will the sophomores be able to step up?

Tiger fans should look forward to the growth of the Memphis sophomores in addition to the leadership of Senior Wesley Witherspoon and the athleticism of newcomers Adonis Thomas and Stan Simpson.

This could be the year Memphis returns to its former glory.
