Press Break The Post's Rundown of Local and National College Basketball
Top of the Arc - March 18, 2009

Good afternoon, everyone. I had an early flight today to Kansas City. And I have been interviewing players, mostly Memphis players, the past few hours. I wanted to rank the games tomorrow in order of most intriguing. Tell me if you disagree.

Maynor takes aim at another storied program

Jones’s veteran team has confidence from last season
