So it's Saturday night, Jan. 19, we were at the game and we all knew North Carolina had lost their basketball game to Maryland and all we had to do was beat Southern Miss and we'd be # 1.
The Fed-ex Forum was electric. The crowd was loud and the energy was high 45 minutes before tip-off
The TIGERS took off from get go and never looked back......winning by 36...........83-47.
We had to wait til Monday when the polls came out to be sure, and where we would be in the polls.
On the radio, in the stores, all over town, it was TIGER talk.
Finally the polls were released...
The University of Memphis men's Basketball team.....was indeed, # 1 in both the USA
Today/ ESPN poll.......and the Associated Press Coaches Poll
For now.......the most respected team in college basketball.
The City is going....NUTS
What a great time to be a TIGER fan
HOW BOUT THEM TIGERS!!!!!
