Memphis went 22-14 last year under new coach Penny Hardaway, the former NBA star who has assembled one of the nation’s top recruiting classes. James Wiseman, a 7-foot-1 center from Nashville, Tenn., is ranked as the top recruit in the nation for the Tigers.
Oregon also has a top-five recruiting class that includes Chandler Lawson, who arrives from Memphis. Oregon recently added five-star center N’Faly Dante, who could face off against Wiseman.
Oklahoma went 20-14 last season while Oregon State went 18-13.
