Post Game Autograph Session with the Tigers
Tigers vs. Texas-Arlington
- Memphis senior Ramses Lonlack is the lone player returning on either roster who played in the game in the Bahamas. The one senior on the UTA roster was a member of the volleyball team the previous four seasons and is just joining the women's basketball team this season. Lonlack was scoreless on three shots in that game.
- Amping up for tough four game stretch: -- Memphis will need these last two home games to prepare for a difficult four-game stretch against four separate opponents who went to the NCAA tournament last season. On Sunday, December 4th, Memphis will host UT Martin, who won the Ohio Valley Conference tournament last year. UTM has already beaten one C-USA foe, Southern Miss, and beat Saint Louis, a team that led Memphis by as many as 11 in its regular season opener. That game will be followed by final exams, then a two-day tournament at St. John's. At St. Johns, Memphis will open against Louisiana Tech, who won the WAC last season, then will play either host St. John's, an at-large team out of the Big East, or Prairie View A&M, who won the SWAC last season to make the NCAA field. But first, the Tigers need to focus on Texas-Arlington, who is coming off its' first win of the season, then Tennessee State.
-Teddy Bear Promotion Game Set -- The game against UT Martin, an NCAA tournament team last year, will be the Teddy Bear Game this year. Fans bringing a bear to donate to the Mid-South Child Advocacy Center will receive free admission. At halftime, fans can toss their bears on to the court to win a prize and the bears will be collected after that to donate to the Child Advocacy Center. This is the third year the Tigers have collected stuffed bears for the group that works on behalf of abused children.
