The Laird of Memphis

Though he might be mistaken for a manager who might be seen picking up towels after practice Preston Laird happens to be a player for the Memphis Tigers. This kid is a Memphis native who is working his way into the rotation. He happens to be gaining ground over other Tigers on the team. A decent showing from the kid who may become the next Root which is great because with Chance McGrady coming up to his final year, and Tiger Fans need some reason to stay late during a hometown blowout.

Memphis finally catches a break

Official the ncaa has cleared Matt Simpkins to play as of december 4, 2008. Now we await whether they clear Angel Garcia who i believe john calipari might be trying to convince to leave, that mostly has to do with a recruit/scholarship issue the memphis tigers have coming up next year.

Also C.Henry should be ready to practice soon. I cannot wait to watch the Chris Henry, Willie Kemp, Wesley Witherspoon rotation, that should be interesting to see who performs the best in that possible point guard rotation. I hope my boy Willie comes around and shuts up his critics, he really seems to have confidence issues at times like he is simply psycheing himself out, but when comes down to it he has come through.
