It's a Good News/Bad News day for the Tigers Basketball Program..

As we told you earlier in this newscast, Freshmen Kareem Cooper is charged with misdemeanor Marijauna possession..

The Tigers also top-out at Number-3 in Both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches Polls..

That's a move up from 4th last week..

The Tigers advance after both Duke and Florida lose for the first time this season.

Memphis, at 17-and-2, Hosts UAB Thursday at FedExForum.

As far as Cooper is concerned, the U of M Coaching staff and administration are getting details of his traffic stop arrest before making a decision on what to do with the him.

One Tigers Fan, season ticket holder Jerry Todd, has his own idea.

I just hope that whatever the outcome he can salvage his career and if he has to be punished, do some punishment and come back and play with us again.">
