HOUSTON (AP) -- Pity those poor, vulnerable Memphis Tigers.You know, the ones who just made mincemeat out of yet another team that was supposed to end their stay in the NCAA tournament.This time, they took it out on Michigan State, embarrassing yet again all those naysayers who suggested Memphis was the most suspect of the top seeds in this year's NCAA tournament.
Sour Feeling For Spartans
Heading into Friday's game against top-seeded Memphis, Michigan State had won its last five Sweet 16 games. The Spartans will have to start a new streak, though, after an embarassing loss to the Tigers.
