RAW VIDEO: Tigers' Calipari puts USC win in perspective

WATCH RAW VIDEO OF COACH CAL'S COMMENTS IN THE PLAYER TO THE RIGHT OF THIS STORY>>>


The Memphis Tigers Basketball team is taking some time off after its' latest trip to New York City..

All except Tigers Head Coach John Calipari.

Coach Cal is still analyzing his 2nd ranked teams' performance in the Jimmy V Classic against #24 USC...

The sloppy contest went to Overtime before the U of M pulled it out 62-to-58..

A thing of beauty it wasn't, but Calipari feels it's a masterpiece because it goes down as a 'W' instead of an 'L', and it gives him a chance to learn more about who can do what, and when.

"Guys deal with pressure...it's different for each of us. Some guys get calm, some start to sweat! Some have anxiety attacks...some are like 'AAHH'. Other guys can calmly do it. Most people can't. 20 offensive rebounds we gave up.. We had 22 turnovers. And we WIN the game! It show we are a pretty good team...and we have a will to win."

The Tigers don't get back in action until December 15th taking on Middle Tennessee State in Nashville.
