Matrisciano, whose official title is "Life Changer," joined the program in the offseason and he's already made a palpable impact. Sophomore forward Tarik Black dropped 22 pounds over the summer and is now a chiseled 240 pounds.

His work will undoubtedly be on display every night the Tigers take the floor. The Tigers will be one of the best-conditioned teams in the country, and any team that attempts to run with Memphis will likely find itself on the losing side of things.
