5. Temple Sweeps Tigers; Ferguson and Miller Honored
- Tuesday, February 14, 2017
Just consider all the things that can be done in about 10 minutes: You could jog a very leisurely mile. Or run two miles and be huffing and puffing. You could dance the Minute Waltz – over and over. You could watch Tom Brady run the two-minute drill – like five times. Or in the case of the University of Memphis basketball team on Sunday, Feb. 12 vs. Temple at FedExForum, you could go 10:55 of game clock without scoring one point. And when you do that, you get the result you expect: You lose, in this instance by a score of 74-62.
