A two-game losing streak in a college basketball season isn’t that unusual. But for the University of Memphis, the current two-game skid has set off alarms.

The Tigers’ strength this season has been their defense. But at Cincinnati last Thursday the Bearcats shot 50 percent in beating Memphis 76-72. A dreadful East Carolina team scored its first American Athletic Conference victory on Sunday, Jan. 23, in an 84-83 win over Memphis at FedExForum and shot 61.5 percent in the first half. Guard B.J. Tyson hit 6 of 10 shots from long range and finished with 26 points.

Gov. Bill Haslam’s plan to restructure higher education didn’t take long to shake up the hierarchy.

11. Last Word: The Crest, OPEB Fever, Armstrong Leaves and An Elvis Warning -

But the river’s high water is still a sight to behold.

That season ended with the Tigers in the Final Four – of the NIT.

18. New Vols Coach Ready to Rebuild -

Tennessee coach Rick Barnes isn’t complaining about the shortcomings of his basketball team.

21. Grizzlies’ Footprint Growing Across Region; Redbirds, RiverKings Try to Hit Their Niches -

When Google offered its “Little Box Challenge” to the scientific world about a year ago – asking inventors to make the smallest, most efficient two-kilowatt inverter possible – Daniel Costinett was intrigued.

23. The Sporting Life of David Climer -

I’m blaming Rudy Kalis. As the years passed in a long career as a sports writer, I always swore I’d never be the oldest guy at the press conference. As long as Rudy was in the house as sports anchor for WSMV-TV, I was safe. Then he got a morning gig at Channel 4.

24. Trust in Tigers Hoops? For Now, Yes -

What food and water are to the human condition, hope is to a new University of Memphis basketball season.
