If it's anything the Top Ranked Memphis Tigers Basketball team DOESN'T NEED right now is an off the court distraction..

Well, one hits them in the hoop right before tonights' game against SMU at FedExForum.

U of M Starting Forward Robert Dozier could face an assault charge after allegedly slapping an ex-girlfriend after a confrontration Downtown near the Plush Club at 3:30am last Sunday.

Police say Laparis Woods filed a domestic assault report, but has not pressed charges..

Head Coach John Calipari says Dozier is suspended indefinitely.

Dozier apologized after the game, saying whatever the outcome, this will not happen again. 

Dozier, a Junior Starter, dressed but did not play Wednesday night against SMU....

But, Joey Dorsey surely did...coming off the bench after a tough effort against UTEP, Dorsey responds with 10-points and 14-rebounds...

Freshman Derrick Rose takes a fast track to the Bucket for the Jam.. But it's not the U of M's offense..it's the Defense that gets things rolling..

The Tigers force 13-first half miscues on SMU..

Then, the Offense heats up..Sophomore Willie Kemp gets the Bolivar Bounce on the Baseline 3-pointer..

Next.. Andre Allen goes coast to Coast..

It's a Career night for the former BTW star...

Back to Back 3's here.. 5 of 8 on the Night.. 19-points for Allen..

Memphis up by 40 before stepping off the gas..

Final Score..Tigers in a Blowout 77-to-48 

The U of M now 22-and-0 overall, 8-0 in C-USA.

The Tigers next host UCF Saturday at 3 at FedExForum.
