As if the undefeated streak wasn't enough, the #1 ranking in the country wass also on the line for the Memphis Tigers Saturday night at FedExForum. But first the Tigers needed to take care of business against Southern Miss. Doneal Mack got Memphis out to a big 21 point half time lead with 3 three-pointers in the first half, 4 for the game. The rest was academic. Chris Douglas Roberts had a game high 19 and Derrick Rose added 13 as the Tigers won big 83-47 and remain undefeated at 17-0. They and Kansas are the only perfect teams left.
Drum roll please....top ranked North Carolina lost to Maryland Saturday afternoon 82-80. It's their first loss this season for teh Tar Heels and that means when the Polls come out Monday...your Memphis Tigers will be the #1 team in the country.
Get your blue pom pons out because this is getting SERIOUS!
