Tigers Lose to Tennessee, 66-59

Posted By on Thu, Dec 31, 2009 at 6:30 PM

It wasn't pretty for either team, but the 14th-ranked Tennessee Vols came to Memphis and beat the hometown Tigers, 66-59, Thursday.

After four minutes of play, neither team had scored. That's how hard points were to come by early in this game. The Tigers broke to an early lead, 13-7, but the Vols had too much inside game for Memphis, and went on 9-0 run to take a 16-13 lead. The Tigers never led again.

Wayne Chism made a buzzer-beating jumper at halftime to give the Vols a 7 point lead. The second half was a game of droughts. Memphis went nearly six minutes without a point, allowing Tennessee to build a 42-29 lead. Memphis then switched to a zone defense and held Tennessee scoreless for six-and-a-half minutes. The Tigers closed the gap to four or five points several times, but could never climb all the way back.

Tennessee out-rebounded Memphis 42-26 and shot 12 more free throws. For a more extensive recap and game stats, check out

Movies This Week

Posted on Thu, Dec 24, 2009 at 2:30 PM

There are lots of high-profile movies opening this holiday week, and Flyer film critics can help guide you through them: Chris Herrington recommends Oscar favorite Up in the Air, with minor reservations, but thinks Nine, the movie about the Broadway musical about the movie (Fellini's 8 1/2) is a bomb. Greg Akers is pleasantly surprised by the non-traditional Sherlock Holmes, which turns the literary detective into an action hero. And Hannah Sayle is conflicted about the high-toned rom-com It's Complicated.
