Penny Hardaway and his Memphis basketball team will spend Thanksgiving in the Bahamas.
Part of a loaded Battle 4 Atlantis field, the Tigers (3-0) are half of a marquee matchup with Michigan (scheduled to tip off at 4 p.m. Nov. 22 at Imperial Arena on Paradise Island). Depending on how things play out, they either will revive their rivalry with Arkansas on Thanksgiving Day or face Stanford for the second time in as many seasons.
The Tigers will face North Carolina, Villanova, Texas Tech or Northern Iowa on Nov. 24.
