Just a friendly reminder for those holding out hope that the Tigers can muster a magical run in the American Athletic Conference Tournament and punch a ticket to the Big Dance.

If they're going to do that, they'll have to beat at least two teams they've lost to earlier this season, starting with the University of Central Florida today at 1:30 p.m. ET. The game will be televised on ESPN2 or WatchESPN.com (cable login info required).

If Tubby Smith and his team survive today against UCF, they'll have to knock off SMU, who beat them by 41 points just last week.

Keep hope alive . . .
