Memphis Tigers men’s basketball

The Memphis Tigers men’s basketball team signifies the University of Memphis at NCAA Division I men’s college basketball. The Tigers have collaborated because 2013 in the American Athletic Conference. As of 2011, the Tigers had the highest winning percentage in NCAA history. They play home games. ESPN Stats and Information Department ranked Memphis since the 19th most prosperous basketball program from 1962 to 2012 in their yearly 50 in 50 list.
On April 7, 2009, Josh Pastner has been appointed the head coach of the team. Pastner was hired as an assistant at Memphis in 2008 after serving as an assistant coach under Lute Olson at Arizona for six years. Pastner gained a reputation as a recruiter throughout his tenure at Arizona. In his first year as coach at Memphis, Pastner brought in Elliot Williams, a transfer from Duke, who led the team in scoring and has been drafted to the NBA. Williams was allowed to play with his first season after departing Calipari took with him Memphis’ top-ranked recruitment class. In 2011 Pastner directed the Tigers back to the NCAA championship for the first time in his coaching profession, even though they dropped in the initial round into his former group, Arizona.
Throughout the 2011—12 year, the Tigers announced they were leaving Conference USA to join the Big East Conference starting in 2013 (later renamed the American Athletic Conference). They began the season strong, moving as high to No. 13 in the nation before falling out of the ranks (a phenomenon which would become a recurrent motif of this Pastner age ). In the last match of this season, Josh Pastner’s success over Tulsa gave him 72 career victories, the most by a Memphis head coach over his first three seasons. Memphis made its second straight NCAA Tournament after winning the Conference USA championship. An 8-seed, the Tigers dropped in the first round to 9-seeded Saint Louis. After the summer, sophomore celebrity Will Barton left for the NBA.
Back in 2012—13, the Tigers, led by CUSA player of the year Joe Jackson, won the Conference USA regular season and tournament titles in their last year in CUSA. [18] The Tigers started competition in the then recently formed American Athletic Conference in 2013. AAC competition wasn’t as kind to the Pastner-led Tigers, since they earned an NCAA tournament berth in only 1 of the group’s first 3 seasons at the AAC.
On April 8, 2016, facing mounting criticism in Memphis, Pastner chose the job of head men’s basketball coach at Georgia Tech. [19] A few days later, the Tigers hired Tubby Smith to take over the head coaching job. [20] Smith had just won the Big 12 coach of the year award in addition to some national training awards because of his season at Texas Tech.
Smith was fired on March 14, 2018, after failing to achieve the NCAA Tournament in both of his two decades as head trainer. Penny Hardaway was later verified as Smith’s replacement
