Tigers Finally Ready for Tennessee

In College Hoops, the wait for the Tennessee Game is almost over..

The players say it's taken a lot of concentration to keep them focused on the task at hand against teams with not much name recognition..

After stumbling at UMass in a last second defeat last Saturday...the Tigers were workmanlike in dispatching their next 2 foes at home, Southeast Missouri State and IUPUI.

Unlike SEMO, ooey-pooey came to FedExForum with a very good resume, including a 9-and-2 record, and a RPI much higher than the U of M's in the low 50's.

Still, the Tigers were able to win by 20.

Pastner says It's total focus on the Vols from now till game time.

Memphis hosts Tennessee Thursday Afternoon at FedExForum.

Tipoff is 3pm.
