There’s nothing like basketball in Memphis. Nothing compares.
That’s the hand of University of Memphis player Pierre Henderson-Niles slapping the face of “Larry the Cable Guy” (aka some racist UAB fan) after the Tigers stormed back from 6 down at UAB to keep their conference win streak, and undefeated season, alive. It was one of the greatest games in the history of NCAA Basketball. I like to think of it as a metaphor for what the Tiger’s want to do to your favorite team:
Look, I know as much as anyone that tumblr isn’t much of a venue for sports content unless you can some how relate it to a meme, but did you know that the University of Memphis has chance tonight to break a record that has stood for over 60 years.
They haven’t lost a conference game since March 2, 2006. That was 1,420 days ago. Now, they are 64-0 in conference play and currently tied with the 1945-50 Kentucky Wildcats for longest conference win streak. With a win tonight, well… let’s just say they would set a record that will probably stand for 100 years.
New Avatar. It’s college basketball season, you know…
