Tigers Don't Mind Pressure of Being Number One

Now that the Memphis Tigers Basketball team has successfully defended its' first test as the Nation's Number One College Basketball team...are the players feeling the pressure of being America's Favorite Target?

That Number One Ranking puts a Big Fat Bullseye on the Boys in Blue and Gray...

Every arena they play in on the Road is Sold Out...

Every Team they play will give Memphis its' best shot.

It's something Tigers players expect....and welcome.

  Forward Robert Dozier says:

"That's what we want, to go into other places and hear the boos... That just jacks us up to play harder. It's Fun."

  Adds Guard Chris Douglas-Roberts:

 "We work so hard in practice, this is the result we expect. We like it. Want want to keep that focus and take it one game at a time."

The Tigers host West Coast Conference Power Gonzaga Saturday, 11am at FedExForum
