RE: Memphis -UC
My favorite was a game down at the Riverfront Coliseum back when Dana Kirk was coach.

Don't remember who won. I just remember we UC students were right behind the Memphis bench, and while we harassed Coach Kirk and the players, they turned around and harassed us back, and didn't pay much attention to the game.

Now, Denny Crum and the Louisville players would just ignore us.

Second favorite was the Great Midwest conference championship game at the Pyramid (1990?). My friend got chased down the hall by some 80 year old lady yelling at him how great Memphis was.

Oh, yeah, UC also won. The Terry Nelson taking a charge on Hardaway game.

1. Steve Logan senior night.
2. The Johnny Olinger game.

All the 1992 basketball games kick ass too but I was 7 so couldn't fully appreciate them (though I remember watching them and it being awesome).

RE: Memphis -UC
Beating them 4 times in '92 was great, and obviously the Elite 8 win was the most important, but I really enjoyed the Great Midwest Tournament Championship Game. That and the game somewhere in the late '90s when the Memphis players got into an altercation with the Bearcat mascot during their lay up line lol.

RE: Memphis -UC
This thread serves to confirm that Memphis remains a great rivalry--through several conferences and decades of games. In my mind for UC, the Tigers were always a rung below our rivalry with Louisville, largely because of physical distance of the campuses. But Memphis has had a great basketball tradition and is working to restore that. We need the Tigers to be good so we can look forward to headliners on ESPN where we tangle once again with both teams ranked.

Final game '93 season. Senior night. Beat Penny & the boys like a drum.

Had seats in the second row right behind the UC bench. Took the hottest chick I ever went out with. She was impressed.

... I felt it was in my best interests to just not tell her that I had won them in a raffle at the company xmas party.

Sounds like Penny is seeing a fork in the road on recruiting.

I used to love the tournament games in Memphis. When the games were over, head to Beale Street and watch some other games while enjoying a frosty beverage or three.

Lil' Penny needs guys like to make a splash because his coaching sure doesn't cut the mustard. If I were him I'd be sweating too.

i was always fond of the satterfield shot. it's crazy to me that that team went further than the year preceding it. i can't remember a bearcat team having two elite lead guards. each vying for top dog with the loser succumbing to the nba

Two of the most talented point guards we've ever had on the roster together -- pretty amazing. Satterfield was a gifted athlete, ball handler, and passer, but Logan could score from anywhere. Wish Satterfield would have stuck around another year or two. If he had developed himself into a first round pick, he would have had a better chance to stick around the league longer.

Also, the fact that neither the 2000 nor 2002 teams got out of the 2nd round is one of the all-time travesties in the realm of what might have been.

I remember hearing before game 3 "You cannot beat a team 3 times so Memphis wins this one".

Then before game 4 it was "UC cannot beat a good team 4 times, this is Penny's game".

Each time the beating got larger. with the last being a total beatdown!

I remember the can't beat them 4x as well and that we shot the lights out in this game, making everything. Hopefully Brannen can get us back to that level of offense.

That Midwest Regional Final was a butt-wuppin' particulary in the second half.

Memphis 36 21 57
Cincinnati 46 42 88

Anfernee Hardaway led the Tigers with just 12 points. Herbert Jones and Nicky Van Exel led the Bearcats with 23 and 22 points respectively. Check out Jonesy's line for the game...

36 MP
23 PTS
.692 FG%
1/3 3PT
4/4 FT
13 BOARDS
2 AST
1 PF

Nicky's...

34 MP
22 PTS
.727 FG%
4/5 3PT
2/4 FT
5 BOARDS
3 AST
1 STL
1 BLK
1 PF

They did about everything but sell popcorn at the half.

An article postgame from The Baltimore Sun...

Quote:Cincinnati sweeps away Memphis State Bearcats stalk semis after 88-57 romp

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Cincinnati Bearcats are going to the Final Four with an attitude.

Attack.

Attack on offense. Attack on defense. Attack with your mouth. Attack with your eyes. Attack first. Attack last. And in between, attack.

Yesterday, for the fourth time this season, the Bearcats beat Great Midwest Conference foe Memphis State. "Beat" isn't the proper word. The final score was 88-57. And the Bearcats were annoyed about those 57.

Cincinnati, a school with a rich basketball tradition that had sort of stagnated since its last Final Four appearance, in 1963, is returning to the national championship chase with a vengeance.

"We hate it when the other team scores," center Corie Blount said. "It's like, 'How could we let that happen?' "

The 57-point lapse aside, Cincinnati (29-4) is champion of the NCAA's Midwest Regional. The Bearcats had started the tournament as the No. 4 seed in the Midwest. Which annoyed them.

"We deserved a much higher seed, at least a No. 2," coach Bob Huggins had said. But seedings don't much matter. Cincinnati will play Michigan, a No. 6 seed, Saturday in the semifinals.

Cincinnati, whose roster is filled almost entirely with junior-college players and other transfers, has adopted Huggins' furious style of aggressive, pressing defense and a fearless offense of quick three-pointers and thumping rebounding.

When the Bearcats play defense, the team becomes one gooey blob, moving as one and filling every crevice, every space, with their moving arms and swinging legs.

On offense, anybody can shoot a three, but if you don't shoot it, you'd better be --ing for the rebound. Or you'll be --ing to the bench, listening to the manic Huggins scream until he puts you back in the game to try again.

Memphis State (23-11), which had lost to the Bearcats twice in the regular season and again in the first Great Midwest Conference tournament championship, certainly knew what to expect.

"We know about their press and their defense and stuff," said Memphis State sophomore Anfernee Hardaway. "But we missed some easy shots early and made some bad plays, and everything just got away from us."

Perhaps the Tigers were trying too hard to emulate Cincinnati's style. But both of Memphis State's starting guards, Tony Madlock and Billy Smith, plus Hardaway, collected three fouls and spent big chunks of the first half on the bench.

The Bearcats used a late first-half spurt to build a 46-36 lead at halftime. As the teams left the court, Cincinnati's starting guards, Nick Van Exel and Anthony Buford, each made a point of waving four fingers in the face of the Tigers.

What A Glorious Season It Was

Nearest hotel I could get was in Rochester MN 90 miles away. Got cheated by a MI pro team. Sold my Champ tickets for enough to cover the entire trip cost and was back in town for opening day free ticket and lunch.
