Call it a Tuneup..
Call it an Exhibition..
Call it whatever you want...but the Memphis Tigers went to work tonight on the Basketball Court at FedExForum.
The Tigers face off against Local Division Three school LeMoyne-Owen in Pre-Season action downtown...
This gives the teams a chance to work out whatever they've learned in practice.. And put it to use against a real opponent.
For new Magicians Coach Smokey Gaines, it's also a chance to put some real cash in LeMoyne-Owens' Athletic Budget.
Tigers waste no time in putting their stamp on this one...
Newcomer Shawne Williams, the former Hamilton High star gets the first hoop of the game tipping in his own miss..
Many more buckets where that came on as the U of M unleashed a fierce full court press, that results in 2-straight slams by All-America point guard Darius Washington..
D-Wash ends up with __ points...
Memphis with some long range gunning as Antonio Anderson fills it up from 3..
And what would Tigers Highlights be without a Rodney Carney Dunk
Final Score..Tigers win it 104-to-60..
