Rose Shoots Tigers Basketball Past Cincinnati

When you're Number-2 in the Nation you have a Big Target on your back...

Especially on the road against a former Conference Rival...

The Memphis Tigers were hoping to have a simple time with a struggling Cincinnati Ballclub that's lost most of the lustre it had under Bob Huggins in Conference USA...

The Tigers make the Big East team pay early its' own arena...starting out 4 of 5 from downtown...

Shawn Taggart inside 26-14

Inside Out game working..

Doneal Mack 3 out front 29-17

Robert Dozier Hook in Paint 31-19 Tigers cruising..

But, game not over..Bearcats roar back...they cut a 15-point down to 1 at the half with this 3 at the Buzzer...

Tigers holding on for dear life...

Second half, the U of M puts the game in the hands of its' Freshman sensation Derrick Rose...

And Rose says, "come on boys, hitch a ride, 'cause we're going to the promised land!"

Rose hits 5 of 7 from downtown...and takes over the game with 25 points..

With Rose gunning, the U of M gets it done.

Final Score..Tigers win it 79-69.

The Tigers, now 9-0, get ready to face 5th ranked Georgetown at home Saturday, 11am in FedExForum.
