Tiger Basketball Warms Up under Intense Spotlight

No doubt the Bluff City is all Abuzz over the Memphis Tigers Basketball Program being ranked among, if not THE top ranked teams in the Nation..

But, what do the players feel about all the hubbub? 

No matter where they look, they can't get away from the feeling something special is going on..

No other College program in the United States has a delegation of Chinese Basketball Coaches watching the players every move.

Then, again, no other program has the Memphis Master Salesman, John Calipari, running it.

The players understand, though, having a top ranking, and Earning it, are two different things.

That's why they say last years' second straight run to the Elite 8 is just that...

Last year.

  Forward Robert Dozier is ready to go.

"Soon as a month after the season, guys right back in the gym..and we were getting after it, Ready to work hard.">

  Tigers Coach John Calipari wants to put it in the Rear View mirror. 

"It was a fun year..it was a rewarding year. We accomplished way more than people thought..maybe more than i thought. Now we move on. Now it's the next challenge."

The Tigers will showcase for their fans Friday Night during Memphis Madness at FedExForum.

The event is Free and open to the Public.

Action starts at 8pm.
