While the Grizzlies make national news for shopping players, the Memphis Tigers stay in the spotlight for just plain winning...as in every game they play.
That's why the Tigers Chris Douglas-Roberts is the guest of Tuesday's Rome is Burning show on ESPN.
Host Jim Rome quizzed CDR about the U of M's undefeated season, and suggested it might be better to take an L to get that monkey off their backs before the NCAA Tournament starts.
Douglas-Roberts is unfazed by the question.
"We've heard that before. I don't think that we go into any game to lose. We want to win every game and that's the way we play. Losing wouldn't do anything for us. If we did, it wouldn't stop us from doing what we're trying to do."
The Top Ranked Tigers, 23-and-0 on the season, next host the Houston Cougars Wendesday night, 8pm, at FedExForum.
