(WMC-TV) - The Memphis Tigers are preparing for a challenging game in the NCAA Tournament against 9 seed George Washington. The team is excited to have a shot to make a run, and look forward to Friday.
"I'm just excited to be in the tourney, just to have another chance," said Joe Jackson, Tigers guard. "To get a chance to make a run on my last year is exciting."
The Tigers have four senior guards who are tournament tested, and for them it's their last shot at a career-defining moment.
"You have to stay loose when you get into these type of games," said Michael Dixon, Tigers senior guard. "I think everybody's in good spirits."
Memphis plays tomorrow around 5:55 p.m. in Raleigh, North Carolina.
