The Annual Memphis Madness to kick off the start of Tiger basketball season.
This year the Memphis Tiger Network went behind the scenes of the 2012 Memphis women's basketball photo shoot. We had a chance to meet a lot of new faces on the team this year and talk to some of the veterans. Lets just say that when the camera started rolling, we got a chance to see the team in a whole different light. Enjoy!
