The Memphis Tigers climbed to the NCAA's Elite Eight Thursday night, but faltered Saturday night trying to take the next step -- to the Final Four. Cold shooting from the floor and turnovers at critical moments cost the Tigers a chance to live up to their number one seeding.

UCLA's tenacious defense stifled the U of M, which was also saddled with foul trouble for Rodney Carney, Joey Dorsey, and Shawne Williams. Go to SI.com for complete coverage. If you can stand it.
