NCAA Tournament 2012, Saint Louis Vs. Memphis: Tarik Black Fouls Out In Ineffective Performance

The Memphis Tigers were struck a major blow in the second half of their NCAA Tournament contest vs. the Saint Louis Billikens when sophomore starter Tarik Black fouled out after an ineffective four point performance. The Billikens’ frontline overwhelmed Black from the start, and in the midst of a run that saw SLU take its biggest lead of the night he reached in one time too many.

The Billikens have taken advantage thus far, but they’ll have to keep the pressure up if they want to maintain their tenuous lead. With less than three minutes in the game the Billikens lead the Tigers by a score of 52-47. Kwamain Mitchell has dominated the proceedings, scoring 22 points on 9-13 shooting against a Tigers squad that’s shot just 1-11 from three.

More SLU: Rick Majerus has apparently been declared SLUperman, and if the Billikens win their first tournament game since 1998 he’ll never have to pay for his own phone booth in town again.
