Memphis Tigers Basketball Schedule

During college basketball season the one place you need to be in Memphis, Tennessee is FedEx Forum, home of the Memphis Tigers basketball team. The hometown fans love the Tigers who have been named as one of the most successful college basketball programs of all time. College hoops is a big deal in Memphis and when the Tigers are sporting a highly ranked team, as they were in the 2013-2014 season and should be during the 2014-2015 season, the whole city is abuzz with basketball fever. Last season the Tigers finished 12-6 in American Athletic Conference play and made it to the third round of the NCAA Tournament before falling to Virginia. This year's squad looks to be even better than last year's and the returning players will be determined to make it back to the top of the American Athletic Conference standings and into the NCAA Tournament yet again.

The Memphis Tigers will once again have their work cut out for them as they go up against some of the best teams in the country during American Athletic Conference play including defending National Champions the UCONN Huskies, the Cincinnati Bearcats, the SMU Mustangs, the Houston Cougars, and more. Making it through the daunting American Athletic Conference regular season is never easy but the Tigers have the talent to make some serious noise in the conference and possibly find themselves at the top of the standings. Memphis will be looking for their fans to be louder than ever at FedEx Forum to help give the Tigers a distinct home court advantage as they attempt to make a big move up the conference standings. Tickets to see the Tigers play in Memphis always sell out quickly so be sure to get yours from StubHub as soon as possible.

Memphis Tigers Basketball History

The history of Memphis Tigers basketball dates all the way back to 1920 and the program is in the top thirty all time in terms of winning percentage. After years playing in Conference USA, the Memphis Tigers had developed some heated rivalries in that conference. Fortunately, after the big changes in Conference USA several other programs came along with the Tigers to join the American Athletic Conference so many of these rivalries remained intact. The Houston Cougars and Cincinnati Bearcats both moved to the new conference along with Memphis so their intense regular season match ups will continue. These were traditionally three of the stronger programs in Conference USA and should continue to be in competition for the top spot in the American Athletic Conference. Additionally you can expect new rivalries to emerge as the Tigers battle national powerhouses like Cincinnati and UCONN during conference play. Last season the Tigers made it to the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament before falling to Virginia and this year's team will be on a mission to advance even further into the Tournament. This is an exciting time for the Memphis Tigers as they have made the NCAA Tournament four years in a row, and will be looking to make it five during the 2014-2015 season.

Memphis Tigers Basketball Conference

The Memphis Tigers play in the newly formed American Athletic Conference which is also now the home of a few former Big East schools including the University of Connecticut and South Florida. The Big East has been in a tumultuous state for many years, with clashes between programs that had football programs and those that did not. The newly formed American Athletic Conference boasts schools from Texas to Florida and all the way to Connecticut. The dynamic conference has proven to be one of the best in men's college basketball since forming last year, with teams like Cincinnati and UCONN as perennial contenders. Cincinnati is the defending American Athletic Conference regular season champion, but the UCONN Huskies won the National Championship in 2014, bringing a National Championship to the conference during its first year of existence. Although it is only one year old there have already been changes in the American Athletic Conference, with the departure of Louisville and Rutgers and the addition of Tulsa and Tulane. With the American Athletic Conference shakeup, things may look a little different on the college basketball landscape, but no matter which conference they are in, the Temple Owls are a team with a storied legacy that continues to find success. Expect big things to happen in the American Athletic Conference in the years to come as new rivalries are established and it continues to prove itself as one of the premiere college hoops conferences in the country.

The Experience

Attending a top college basketball game is one of the best experiences to be found in sports. Many of the top student athletes in the world take the court in college basketball, when this is combined with some of the most passionate fans in all of sports there is an atmosphere in the arena that cannot be found anywhere else. When you set foot in FedEx Forum for a Memphis Tigers home basketball game this will all be clear. As the teams set up for opening jump ball the fans get on their feet and loudly cheer for their alma mater and hometown favorites. The game continues full of end to end action, big time shots, and clutch defensive stops. All of a sudden the clock is winding down in the second half and the two sides are wrapped up in yet another tight contest. Your palms get sweaty with each trip down the floor and each time a player from your favorite team lets loose a shot you hold your breath until the ball tickles the twine. This continues until the final buzzer when the Tigers' side erupts after another big win and their fans exit of the arena in jubilation. The moment you leave FedEx Forum you will want to immediately start planning your next trip to the venue to cheer on the Tigers.


Memphis has participated in the NCAA Tournament 26 times and advanced to the Championship Game twice, in 1973 and in 2008. The 2008 appearance has since been vacated by the NCAA due to recruiting violations by former Tigers coach John Calipari.
