Memphis Tigers fans took a roller coaster ride Saturday. The night began with high hopes at the Wing Factory in Orange Mound as fans rooted for their team. Banners, balloons and tassels bore Tiger grey and blue as the University of Memphis hit the court in the Elite 8.
There were ups and downs as the Tigers put up a fight. Though they didn't make it, fans still stand behind their team.
"Basketball is a unified system of bringing people together, so that's what Memphis is all about," said Former Grizzlies Co-owner, Charles Ewing.
