Mike Krzyzewski's comment has rankled Roy Williams.
Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl had to call Memphis coach John Calipari to ask for tickets for Peyton Manning for their much-anticipated, 1-2 matchup. "Tickets are going online like they're Super Bowl tickets," Calipari said during a conference call. "It's incredible." As of Tuesday, tickets were going for as much as $10,000 on Stubhub. The game's timing has a lot to do with the soaring demand. For the full Associated Press story, click here.

ESPN.com Memphis coach John Calipari can't wait for Saturday's 1 vs. 2 showdown with Tennessee. Why? "It's finally a game that we're allowed to lose," Calipari said Monday night. Calipari's frustration stems from a perception that the Tigers aren't allowed to, or shouldn't drop, a game in Conference USA. He said that Duke isn't criticized for losing at Wake Forest, yet had Memphis lost at UAB on Saturday night (and it took a defensive stop in the final possession to pull it off), then the Tigers "would have dropped eight or nine spots in the poll." Memphis' next game, prior to Tennessee, is at Tulane on Wednesday. The Green Wave are having a solid season under Dave Dickerson at 5-5 in the league, 15-9 overall. For Katz's full blog, click here.

Meet Lester HudsonBy Chris Low
ESPN.com Even now, Lester Hudson still pinches himself occasionally and wonders how he made it out of one of the roughest neighborhoods in Memphis, his thoughts drifting back to all those times he wanted to give up and all those times when the thought of playing Division I basketball seemed like a fairy tale. But this is no fairy tale. This is the real thing, and so is Hudson. Three games into his UT-Martin career earlier this season, he became the first men's player in Division I history to record a quadruple-double with 25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals in a 116-74 win over Division II Central Baptist College. But he also showed greatness against the big boys, erupting for 36 points, nine rebounds and six assists against Vanderbilt, 35 points and 10 rebounds against Memphis and 27 points and 11 rebounds against Mississippi State. In his most recent outing, a 98-85 win over Southeast Missouri State on Feb. 16, Hudson turned in a triple-double -- 26 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.
