8. Tigers Season Ends On Common Theme -

RALEIGH, N.C. – Senior guard Geron Johnson had guaranteed the Memphis Tigers would win two NCAA Tournament games. But in the wake of their 78-60 loss to top-seeded Virginia Sunday night in the round of 32, Johnson looked a reporter in the eye and offered a revised declaration.

9. Tigers Season Ends on Common Theme: ‘Underachieved’ -

RALEIGH, N.C. – Senior guard Geron Johnson had guaranteed the Memphis Tigers would win two NCAA Tournament games. But in the wake of their 78-60 loss to top-seeded Virginia Sunday night in the round of 32, Johnson looked a reporter in the eye and offered a revised declaration.

10. Tigers Hang to Beat GW in NCAAs -

RALEIGH, N.C. – Senior guard Michael Dixon Jr. once thought his college basketball career was done.

You know the story. From Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year at Missouri to being exiled after sexual assault allegations that never became more than that, never turned into actual charges.

11. Rested Grizz Prep for Playoff Push -

Historians, not to mention members of the 1985-86 Boston Celtics bench, will note that in the Grizzlies’ recent victory over the Utah Jazz the Memphis bench shot 42.9 percent: significant because it ended a stretch of 14 straight games of the bench shooting 50 percent or better, the longest such streak in the NBA since those Celtics did so in 15 consecutive games.

15. Time for Winning -

Through a 31-game regular season and an 18-game grind in the American Athletic Conference, the University of Memphis never lost back-to-back games. It’s a notable achievement.

But now that the single-elimination season has started, it also is an irrelevant statistic going forward unless the Tigers have the misfortune to lose their first AAC Tournament game Thursday, March 13, at FedExForum against Connecticut, and then lose their first NCAA Tournament game a week later.

16. Grizz Need Strong Finish for Playoff Chance -

Twenty games to go and, at this point, even a 13-7 finish might not be good enough to ensure the Grizzlies make the Western Conference Playoffs.

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. home prices fell for the second straight month in December as brutally cold weather, tight supply and higher costs slowed sales.

The Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index declined 0.1 percent from November to December, matching the previous month's decline. The index is not adjusted for seasonal variations, so the dip partly reflects slower buying as winter weather set in.

22. US Housing Construction Down 16 Percent in January -

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. home construction fell in January for a second month but the weakness in both months reflected severe winter weather in many parts of the country. The expectation is that housing will deliver another year of solid gains, helped by an improving economy.

26. Playoffs Implications -

The calendar says the Dallas Mavericks will be at FedExForum to play the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday, Feb. 5. Just one game of 82 in the coast-to-coast marathon that is the NBA season.

27. Mulroy Gets in County Mayor’s Race -

29. Café Keough Owner Banking on Locale, Food for Success -

It’s tough enough to start a new business. Tougher still if that business is an independent restaurant. And tougher still if your vision for what it will be lives only in your imagination.

“I’m trying to make an old Memphis cafe,” Kevin Keough, owner of Café Keough at 12 S. Main St., said one recent afternoon as he sipped coffee and explained his dream. “But that doesn’t exist. So I had to make it up, what I think it could have looked like.”

32. Details Surface in Ambitious Digital Pilot Program -

Toward the end of his run as Memphis City Schools superintendent, Kriner Cash talked of a switch in schools to digital devices for learning away from school.

33. Home Court Not So Sweet for Tigers -

37. Grizzlies Look to Build Momentum -

Their winning streak is a modest two games. But don’t tell the Grizzlies they’re the same team that they were a month ago.

Since a five-game losing streak from Dec. 11-18, the Grizzlies have gone 7-4. They have added forward James Johnson, who has injected them with energy, athleticism and an ability to contribute numbers all across a box score. They have exchanged a disappointing Jerryd Bayless for shooting guard Courtney Lee, who in the Grizzlies 108-101 victory over Atlanta Sunday, Jan. 12, at FedExForum scored 15 points in his first start since being acquired from Boston on Jan. 7.
