Tigers Pass Test at UCF

In College Hoops, at least the Memphis Tigers are back in the 20's in the Associated Press poll..

Just NOT in the Top 25.

The Tigers ran their record to 12-and-3 over the weekend after coming from behind on the road at UCF, 73-to-66.

The U of M gets enough votes to come in 29, after spending the last 2 weeks in the mid-30's.

The Tigers Young players, like Freshman Wesley Witherspoon, say they spent the early part of the game in Orlando in a Fog.. Almost overwhelmed by the sellout crowd in their first C-USA game away from home.

Asked if he'd seen anything like it, Freshman Forward Wesley Witherspoon thought for a moment, then thought again and said, "No, nothing like That!"

  Senior Forward Robert Dozier praised Witherspoon, along with fellow Frosh Tyreke Evans for getting it done when it counted.

"These guys to go in that place with all those people hollering and screaming and to come back after being down by 9 shows the toughness we'll need to win anywhere."

  The Tigers next Road Test comes Tuesday night at Tulsa.
