Memphis is trying to do everything it can to secure a possible second-round home game in the NIT Season Tip-off against Alabama -- including discussing buying out a date at the Fed Ex Forum.

According to Memphis coach John Calipari, the university will discuss purchasing the rights to the arena away from the previously scheduled Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Currently, the Fed Ex Forum Web site shows this event occurring on Nov. 17th at 7:30 p.m. (CST), the same date and evening that Memphis would want to host a second-round game.
