As the 2023-2024 college basketball season approaches, Memphis Tigers fans are excited and hopeful. The question on everyone’s mind is whether the Tigers have a realistic shot at making it to this year’s Final Four in Phoenix. This article will explore the factors that make this dream seem more achievable than ever.
The Roster: Experience and Talent
One of the most promising aspects of the Tigers’ campaign this year is their roster. Head coach Penny Hardaway has assembled a team that combines experience and talent. Unlike some programs relying solely on high-profile recruits, Memphis boasts a lineup of players who have seen action in big games and possess the skills to excel at the collegiate level.

Challenging Non-Conference Schedule
The Tigers’ non-conference schedule for the upcoming season is challenging. They’ll face powerhouses like Virginia, Texas A&M, and Michigan, offering them the perfect opportunity to prove their mettle. These high-profile matchups will test their skills and prepare them for the rigors of conference play.
FAU: A Top Contender in the AAC
While many eyes are on Memphis, noticing the competition within the AAC is essential. Florida Atlantic University (FAU) is one of the newcomers to the conference, fresh off their remarkable Final Four run last season. This program’s success highlights the quality of teams Memphis will face within the AAC, providing added motivation to rise to the occasion.
Final Four Dreams Within Reach
Memphis fans are no strangers to the excitement of the NCAA Tournament, but making it to the Final Four is a rare feat. Last year, as the Tigers gained momentum towards the end of the season, they started to be viewed as a dark horse team that could potentially reach the Final Four. This season, those expectations remain high.
The Path to Success
Memphis must excel in non-conference and conference play to achieve Final Four glory. Their experienced roster and the challenges they’ll face early in the season should prepare them for the postseason. Coach Hardaway’s leadership and the players’ determination will be critical factors in this quest. Memphis Tigers fans believe this year could be their time to shine on the national stage in the ever-competitive college basketball world. While nothing is guaranteed, the pieces are in place for a memorable season. As the Tigers take the court, the dream of reaching the Final Four is realistic.
