The Skinny: Great moments are born of great opportunity, and that’s what you have here tonight boys.  That’s what you’ve earned here tonight, one game.

If we played them eleven times, they’d probably win seven.  But not this game, not tonight.  Tonight, we dribble with them.

Tonight we stay with ‘em, and we shut them down because we can!

Tonight we are the greatest basketball team in the world.

You were born to be basketball players — every one of ya…and you were meant to be here tonight.


Their time, its done, its over.

I’m sick and tired of hearing what a good basketball team Memphis has.


Now go out there and take it!

Just because something has never been done before doesn’t mean it can’t be.  NOW LETS GO OUT THERE AND GET HALFWAY TO HISTORY!
