    Early years

    The predecessor of the University of Memphis, West Tennessee State Normal School, first put a basketball team on the court in 1920. Zach Curlin began coaching the team in 1924. The Tigers joined the Mississippi Valley Conference in 1928. The team played its early home games at a local high school gym, a local YMCA, and in a room on campus called the "Normal Cage" which allowed only six inches from the court lines to the walls. In 1929, a $100,000 facility on campus named Memorial Gym became t...


    In 1970, Gene Bartow was named head coach. The 1970 season also saw the first games of Larry Finch and Ronnie Robinson, two all-time greats. Larry Finch scored 24 points in his first appearance as a freshman. In 1971, the Tigers led by Finch and Robinson upset conference rival Louisville. At 11–2, they were ranked #19 after not reaching the Top 20 in a decade. Early in the 1971–1972 season, Memphis State fell in a heart breaker to No. 2 Marquette after leading by five points with five minutes...


    In the 1980s, the Tigers made seven NCAA tournaments and won three Metro Conference titles, amassing a record of 230–87 (.726). Keith Lee began playing for the Tigers in 1982, and Memphis was ranked number one in both major national polls for the first time the same year. However, that same night they were knocked off by Virginia Tech 69–56 in Blacksburg. In the 1983 NCAA Tournament, the Tigers beat Georgetown led by Patrick Ewing, whom Lee dominated in the paint. They lost their next game to...

    The Tigers have appeared in the NCAA Tournament 26 times. Their overall record is 34–26. However, wins in 1982–1986 and 2008 have been vacated. * = vacated by NCAA

    The Tigers have appeared in the National Invitation Tournament(NIT) 19 times. Their combined record is 24–17 and they were NIT champions in 2002 and 2021.


    Memphis has had 8 players chosen as All-Americans by the four sources used by the NCAA to determine consensus teams, the Associated Press, the United States Basketball Writers Association, the National Association of Basketball Coaches and The Sporting News (which replaced the United Press International in 1998). Three players have been unanimous first team selections (Keith Lee, Anfernee Hardaway, and Chris Douglas-Roberts). Keith Lee was the only Tiger to be selected more than once, eventua...

    Since the NBA Draft began in 1947, 50 players from Memphis have been drafted, with an additional four signed as undrafted free agents. Of the 50 drafted players, 28 played in at least one NBA (or ABA) game. Memphis has produced 13 first-round picks, including 8 top-ten picks and one number-one pick (Derrick Rose). Three former Tigers have been named NBA All-Stars: Larry Kenon (twice), Penny Hardaway (4 times), and Derrick Rose (3 times). Three have gone on to win the NBA Championship: Win Wilfong with the St. Louis Hawks in 1958, William Bedford with the Detroit Pistons in 1990, and Earl Barron with the Miami Heat in 2006. In 2010, Memphis became the second college to produce two consecutive NBA Rookie of the Year winners: Derrick Rose in 2009 and Tyreke Evans in 2010 (the first being North Carolina with winners Walter Davis in 1978 and Phil Ford in 1979). In 2011, Rose became the first former Tiger to be named the NBA Most Valuable Player. Many Memphis players since the 1960s that...

    "By 1913 all departments of the earlier University of Memphis, except the law school, had been taken over by the State University." This information is in error; I believe the "state university" that took over those departments was the University of Tennessee, not West Tennessee Normal School (for obvious reasons). They remain part of the University of Tennessee today. (talk) 19:58, 24 June 2014 (UTC) 1. You can change the statement, but first you should find secondary or tertiary sources to support your "thoughts". Otherwise, your opinion becomes one more 'he said, she said'. Notable sources make an encyclopedia. Thanks for your interest. rags (talk) 13:02, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

    If the 'Controversy Section' is going to continue to maintain that it is (or even was) University of Memphis policy to 'require female athletes to sign a document that they might lose their scholarships due to pregnancy' - it at least should provide a working link to the source used in support. There is none and this is not or even 'was not' University policy as far as I know. 1.

    This page has two sections for notable athletic alumni, a list under notable alumni and a prose paragraph in athletics. I would suggest that the latter be merged into the former. Purplemouse16:30, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

    My sympathies to the classmates and teammates of the player. This incident, treated in detail here, needs to be summarized as cleanly as possible for posterity. Not meaning to knock current editors who have treated the article very objectively, IMO. Hard to appreciate now, but try to picture how it should look for readers outside the school and a year or more from now. Suggest a separate section (which one editor has hinted at) for the time being, and a much shorter summary as time progresses. And, yes, unless the death can be attributed to his football career, it may not belong under that section. Student721:36, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

    The article says, "first Final Four appearance since 1985", but that's marginally untrue because the 1985 Final Four was vacated by the NCAA. Is there a consistent policy on dealing with nullified sporting honors in Wikipedia? Ben Johnson (sprinter) says, "and an Olympic Gold which was subsequently rescinded". I'm going to change it just to note the vacated Final Four, but my opinion is this should be considered the first since 1973. - PhilipR (talk) 03:57, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

    I would like to contend that Derrick Rose and others are not "notable alumni" and should not be listed in such a category because they have not graduated from the University of Memphis. Perhaps they should be included as "notable attendees", or, if they are significant enough, in the prose regarding their contribution to the university (Rose in the "Basketball" section, for instance). I didn't want to make the change without discussion, though. MrAsterisk (talk) 22:43, 27 June 2008 (UTC) Kathy Bates graduated in Fine Arts from Southern Methodist Unversity--not Memphis State.

    what is the black to white ratio ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:09, 10 April 2010 (UTC) 1. The History section indicates 1:2, or 1/3 black. This is kund of dinosaur thinking, in the 21st century, and not very accurate at any rate, since there are students from around the world, from countries where they distinguish "black" from "coloured", and from localities where they are pretty much colour-blind. Unlike the deep-fried South. Cain't we all jes get along? rags (talk) 16:36, 10 June 2017 (UTC)
