The pumping musical Memphis celebrates an America whose definition of freedom is always evolving. The national tour, which pulled into the Academy of Music on Tuesday and is staying through Sunday, delivers the show about the '50s with the same high energy and spirit as its Broadway rendition. Memphis , which is loosely based on a true story about a young Memphian who integrated the music on the city's radio stations, won the best-musical Tony in 2010, and its popularity across demographics has helped producers turn it into a new Broadway experience, across formats.

Paradise agrees with Michigan. Tim Hardaway Jr. had 21 points, Trey Burke added 14 and the No. 15 Wolverines knocked off No. 8 Memphis 73-61 in the the Maui Invitational yesterday in Hawaii.

Marcus Oliver scored a career-high 26 points and Houston hit just enough free throws in the closing minutes to upset Memphis, 80-74, yesterday in the Conference USA Tournament at Cincinnati. Memphis (22-9) never led and never figured out how to stop the Cougars' patient, highly accurate offense, which shot 55.6 percent from the field and pulled away at the free throw line. Houston (18-13) scored its last 14 points from the line, hitting 14 of 24 in the final 3:57. It was a stunning loss for Memphis, which nearly won the regular-season championship on Cincinnati's court Sunday.

Everyone knows Memphis can crank up the tempo and play a fast-paced game. But if someone wants to get down and dirty? Well, the Tigers can slog it out with the best of 'em, too. Joey Dorsey set the tempo with a performance that endeared him to football coaches everywhere, finishing with 13 points, 12 rebounds, a season-high six blocks, five fouls and an untold number of bumps and bruises, and top-seeded Memphis outscrapped Mississippi State, 77-74,...

Rodney Carney was of average height until a growth spurt during middle school left him at 6-foot-5 as a high school sophomore. He is now 6-7, and he is as thin as angel hair pasta and so gangly that it looks as if his body moves in sections. But in helping Memphis reach the NCAA tournament regional semifinals in Oakland, the leaper of a forward has displayed many of the attributes of a little man: Speed, quickness, agility. "You try to get a man and a half [on Carney]

John Calipari has fielded this type of telephone call before. Because of his success as coach at the University of Massachusetts, because of his high profile as coach of the New Jersey Nets and because of his current job as an assistant coach with the 76ers, it is not unusual for his phone to ring when another job is available. This time, it's the University of Memphis, where Johnny Jones has been the interim coach since Tic Price resigned last month. This time, it's Memphis athletic director R.C. Johnson - a former Temple athletic director - checking with a onetime Atlantic 10 Conference opponent.

In the end, it came down to a comfort zone for Tyreke Evans, the talented 6-6 shooting guard from American Christian and the nation's top unsigned basketball player. Evans liked the way Memphis played, he liked how far Memphis is from his Chester home, and he liked the way Tigers coach John Calipari prepares players for the NBA. They are among the most important reasons why Evans chose Memphis over Villanova yesterday during a news conference announcing where he'll attend college next season.

The University of Memphis isn't backing down in its appeal of the NCAA order to vacate the 2007-08 men's basketball season, even though the Committee on Infraction's response has fans worried about even worse punishment. Memphis argues in its 28-page rebuttal to the NCAA's response to the university's appeal that the Committee on Infractions puts the Tigers at risk of double jeopardy. If the appeals committee decides to restore the vacated wins or cut the fine, the Committee on Infractions has asked that the case be remanded back to it to consider other punishment not handed out originally.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Memphis point guard Ricky Tarrant Jr. literally took a shot to the mouth, and bounced back to deliver the knockout free throws as the Tigers rallied past Temple, 67-65, in an American Athletic Conference game Wednesday night before 12,247 at FedEx Forum. The Owls, who had built an 11-point lead five minutes into the second half and saw it slip away thanks to Tiger pressure and some suddenly suspect ballhandling, looked to have forced overtime with two seconds left as Josh Brown stole the ball off a rebound and put it home to tie the game at 65 for the Owls (8-7, 3-2)

OK, CALL IT far-fetched, but after his death on Thursday, Ed Devlin may have made it known how happy he was with the Eagles' victory over New England three days later. After Ed died, a Catholic priest who went to his bedside, told the family to expect a sign from Ed letting them know everything was all right. "While we were watching the Eagles game on Sunday, I suddenly knew what the sign was," said his brother, Terry. "It was the Eagles beating the Patriots!" Whatever, Ed certainly would have been thrilled by the unexpected victory.

FOR ALL it has done in the first 11 games, Temple hasn't won anything yet. The Owls are 9-2. The only time they had 10 victories in a season was 36 years ago. Still, the reality is this: If they lose Saturday night to Connecticut in South Philly and don't get into the first American Conference title game, then lose whatever non-New Year's bowl they'd go to, they'd finish 9-4, having dropped four of their last six. So how "successful" would that...

Temple hopes to fix the leaks on its defense when the Owls host Memphis in Saturday's noon American Athletic Conference game at Lincoln Financial Field. The Owls face a team that averages more points per game than the 42.0 average Temple has allowed in its last two games. Temple (8-2, 5-1 AAC) can clinch the AAC East Division with wins over Memphis and then Connecticut in its season finale, regardless of any other outcome. The Owls can also clinch with one win and a South Florida loss vs. Cincinnati on Friday night.
