Tigers Dozier Ready For Opener AND Diploma

The Memphis Tigers are getting set for their Season Opener Saturday Night against Fairfield..

The Tigers are rated among the Top 15 teams in the Nation in every major Pre-Season Poll..

Being rated among the Best ON the court is something Forward Robert Dozier is quite used to.

The Senior from Atlanta is poised to etch his name as one of the winningest players in College Basketball when his run with the Tigers is finished..

But, he has other goals OFF the Court.

"I'd never even seen going to college before I got to the 12th grade..." Dozier says.

" You know I never even thought about it. I just wanted to graduate High School. That was my thing. Buyt, I started getting looked at by a couple schools... Coach Cal started calling me and everything. But, I definetely feel i'm a better person today because I came to school."

Tipoff for Dozier and the Tigers against Fairfield is 7pm Saturday at FedExForum.
