Tigers Look for Boost to Finish Regular Season Strong

After 30-games the Memphis Tigers are 29-and-1..

Reason to Celebrate, right? 

That's exactly what you'd think the Tigers would be doing..

But after coming up with their Best Road Record in 47 years at 10-and-0, and poised to go unbeaten in Conference USA for the second year in a row...the U of M is trying to keep from becoming complacent about its' League..

Head Coach John Calipari is searching for ways to rekindle the fire that saw Memphis whip up on Top 25 competition early in the season...

A season that started more than 4-months ago.

  U of M Head Coach John Calipari says this time of year the Top 30 teams are feeling the pressure of battling for seeding i the NCAA Tournament..

  The teams in the bottom half of College Hoops pretty much just want to get the season over.

The teams in the middle are sweating if they'll get a bid to the Big Dance.

  Coach Cal says it all adds up to pressure...and pressure makes you tired...from players to coaches.. Everybody.

Calipari says his team has done a good job of answering the bell each game so far.

The Tigers Host U.A.B. in their final Regular Season game Saturday, Noon Tipoff at FedExForum.
