A whole host of would-be Cinderella squads will tip off at the Fed Ex Forum in Memphis, Tennessee, on Wednesday in the C-USA Tournament. All eight teams playing in the first round have NCAA Tournament hopes rest that solely in winning the conference tournament itself. The consensus among bracketology experts is that the C-USA will send only two teams as potential at-large bids - Memphis and Southern Miss, the No. 1 and No. 2 seeded schools in the tournament.
SMU (13-18) would advance to play No. 3 seed Tulsa if they can beat Marshall, who is floating on the bubble as a "first four out" team by many bracketologists.
