Free Throws… A Memphis Nightmare
April 8, 2008
And you though movies like The Exorcist, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Halloween were scary… Ha! You haven’t seen scary until you have watched the Memphis Tigers try to lock up a National Championship while shooting free throws. Stephen King couldn’t write a better horror than what took place in San Antonio on Monday night.
All season long, Memphis had struggled to make free throws as they were second to last in the nation in this category. Head coach John Calipari downplayed his team’s struggles all season, but when it counted the most, the Tigers came up short. Memphis managed to miss four out of its last five free throws and left the door open for Mario Chalmers to bury the game-tying 3 that was the ultimate dagger into the hearts of the Tigers.
So before anyone takes my idea and runs with it, I’m starting the filming of my epic horror film, A Memphis Nightmare!
