How Sweet It Is! 

The Memphis Tigers advanced to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 1995 by beating Bucknell this afternoon, 72-56. The Tigers, who also set a school record for victories with 32, were led by Antonio Anderson with 13 points, one of seven Tigers who scored at least eight points. (click on headline for more)

Memphis made seven 3-pointers and shot 52.4, forcing the outmanned Bison into 19 turnovers and 36.6 percent shooting.

The Tigers trailed 10-4 early, but broke the game open with a 20-2 run midway through the first half.

"It's amazing," said Bison guard Kevin Bettencourt, who added, "It's definitely frustrating because they shut everything down."

The Tigers take on Bradley, which upset heavily favored Pittsburgh next weekend.
