Eight is Enough 

The Memphis Tigers climbed to the NCAA's Elite Eight Thursday night, but faltered tonight 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. The Tigers made only two three pointers, both in the final minute after the game was all but decided. UCLA's tenacious defense stifled the U of M, which was also saddled with foul trouble for Rodney Carney, Joey Dorsey, and Shawn Williams. Go to SI.com for complete coverage. If you can stand it.
