MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC-TV) - Tigers fans packed the University of Memphis' Rose Theater on Saturday to cheer the team on their way to the Sweet Sixteen.
    
Fans were ecstatic as they celebrated their team's 19-point victory over Maryland in the second round of the West Regional.
    
Fans said they were glad to be able to relax during Saturday's game, after Thursday's nail-biter against Cal State Northridge.
    
"It's wonderful, it's a totally different from team than was on the court Thursday," said Tigers fan Buz Vollmer. "The guys are looking great."

Tigers fans said they enjoyed watching the Tigers show Maryland a thing or two - especially after the smack-talking by Maryland's Greivis Vasquez.

"I'm real proud of the Tigers, they finally got it together. Looked like the Tigers of last year," said Tim Jordan, a junior at the University of Memphis.
 
Next up is the Sweet 16, and Tigers fans say they're confident the fourth time will be a charm.

The Tigers play again on Thursday in Glendale, Arizona.
