A nearly century-old neighborhood that was torn in two when Interstate 40 came crashing to a halt at the doorstep of Overton Park is now again on the precipice of change.

99. Last Word: Calipari's Return, Moss, McDowell & Stewart and Unemployment Up -

So John Calipari could be coming to town with his Kentucky Wildcats for the NCAA Southern Regional March 24 and 26 at the Forum. Aside from that local reminder of the long memory sports slights can have in our city, the regional in Memphis looks to be a big concentration of great college basketball in a city that hasn’t had a whole lot to cheer about recently on that front or the professional front.
