The Memphis Tigers won their third straight game in the NCAA tournament by 16 points to advance to the Elite Eight for the first time since 1992. The Tigers defeated Bradley 80-64. After leading by five at halftime (35-30) Memphis pulled away by the middle of the second half to a comfortable lead and held on behind Rodney Carney's 23 points. The Tigers will face UCLA in the West Region championship game Saturday night. UCLA edged Gonzaga to win the right to take on the Tigers. For details, check out Sports Illustrated.com
