The best play in Memphis Tigers Sports.
I was thinking of a couple of football plays and a couple of basketball plays but none of them really seemed right. Stopping Ole Miss on a couple of fourth fourth downs. 'Tournament run' dunks by CDR or Joey Dorsey -- don't seem to qualify as "the best" - so help me out. I'd be interested to see/ read what others have to say. Plays that are indelibly marked in your memories but, for some reason, aren't in mine - at least not at the moment.:-)

Antonio Anderson hitting both free throws to take us to the elite eight. Everyone said free throw shooting would come back to haunt us that year.

In Texas, if I recall correctly.

Texas A&M was unable to take advantage of a partisan crowd, the stands in the Alamodome filled mostly with maroon-clad fans providing a football-like atmosphere and waiting to celebrate another big victory.

Instead, it was the small contingency of fans in blue behind the Memphis bench -- including former Tigers star Penny Hardaway -- who were cheering at the end.

"We just hung around, and that's all we were trying to do," Calipari said. "This is what we wanted, to come to Texas in front of 30,000 and prove ourselves."

My favorite was the joe Jackson team where the ball got passed backwards over one of the players heads and finished with a dunk. I think there were 2 or 3 circus passes on the same play. Not the most meaningful but my favorite.

RE: The best play in Memphis Tigers Sports.
Mine may not meet stated criteria (sorry) but it was a run of great plays like we’ve never seen in Tiger sports history. The 3 game and 38 minutes of the 2008 NCAA Tournament that HOF basketball writer Mike DeCourcy called the most dominant stretch that he had seen in the NCAA tournament. Taking out Michigan St. (I believe halftime score was 50-18), kicking Texas azz in Houston by 18 and it wasn’t that close and beating UCLA (had 4 solid NBA players) by 15 and having Kansas down 11 with 2 to go.


Then perfect storm hit and if you take out any SINGLE bad play, we probably win double digits up till about 45 second mark.

After Memphis beat UCLA on Saturday, beat the Bruins down the court and beat them up, somebody said that it had been written in a newspaper that him against UCLA coach Ben Howland was a coaching mismatch, in Howland's favor, of course. Because the guys who don't like Calipari have always thought he is all talk.

And almost before the question had been completed, Calipari was saying, "Hey, I don't think Ben's that bad," delivering the line like a pro and getting a laugh.

Just like CDR slamming over KL

Keith Lee's dunk on the missed front end of a one and one that eveyone else on the court thought was a 2 shot foul.
