RE: The best play in Memphis Tigers Sports.
Was it the 1985 FSU game the Andre Turner stole the inbounds pass with 7 seconds left, drove the length of the floor and hit a buzzer beater from the elbow? I was fairly young, but that’s my recollection.

That is my favorite.

I thought about that one, it was great. Everyone on the line stood there waiting for the refs to give Lee a second free throw. Lee hesitated a split second, then grabbed the ball and dunked it.

I also thought about the miss/block that bounced about a mile in the air and Steve Ballard came running down the court, timed it perfectly and dunked it when the ball final got back down to the goal.

Kirk's wrong way half time play just can't be beat. We did it several times over a few years. They started having to tell the refs so the refs wouldn't F it up.

I was hoping someone would post that. It's my favorite basketball play.

It's almost like a ballet. Definitely the best play but in a meaningless game.

DJ Jeffries dunk on Kentucky's Nick Richards to go up 2 with 1:30 remaining in the National championship. Capped by the steal by Boogie Ellis and transition 3 by Lester Q. to complete Memphis' 1st ever title run. Oh wait....that hasn't happened yet. Back to my Delorean.

...and the $10K that you put on the Tigers at 200-1 will be used for a new OCS.

Stole the ball from Pee Wee Barber in Metro semis I believe. Andre was clutch. The ‘85 NCAA tournament showed just how clutch he was with two game winners vs UAB and BC. Good teams then. Either could qualify because of the stakes.

I'm all about supporting my Tigers, but a new lump sum of money coming my way would be earmarked for St Jude as well as the Tigers. Unfortunately, I only put $20 on the Tigers at +3000 or 30 to 1. So My winning amount would be $620. Hardly gets me a seat at the high rollers table but does help me to celebrate a little extra on April 6, 2020 in ATL 03-drunk

Scott Vogel with a couple of fourth quarter sacks at Arkansas State that resulted in fumbles that allowed us to come from behind and win.

That was one of the craziest games I ever witnessed. Ark St. kicked our tail all game until the last 9 minutes. It is as if the Tigers decided it was time start taking the game seriously.
