C-USA: The Last Dance

Posted By on Wed, Jan 9, 2013 at 9:19 AM

When the Tigers tip-off tonight against East Carolina at FedExForum, their 18th and final Conference USA season will be officially underway. For some historical perspective, the Memphis program spent only six years in the Missouri Valley Conference (1967-73) and only 16 in the Metro Conference (1975-91).

With five regular-season titles and six tourney championships, it's been an era of dominance for the U of M. Below is a list of the Tigers' record against their 11 current C-USA foes (including games in the postseason tournament). Only Tulane, UAB, and Southern Miss have been in the league with Memphis all 18 years. And five of the teams below — Houston, SMU, UCF, East Carolina, and Tulane — will be joining the Tigers next season in the revamped Big East.

• UAB: 24-7
• Southern Miss: 26-10
• Tulane: 25-2
• Houston: 23-9
• East Carolina: 12-1
• Tulsa: 13-1
• UTEP: 6-3
• UCF: 9-1
• Marshall: 10-1
• Rice: 6-1
• SMU: 9-2
