Tennessee ended Memphis' quest for a perfect season with a 66-62 victory over the Tigers Saturday night. We're not sure if the victory can be attributed to the Vols outscrapping the Tigers or this awesome Bruce Pearl pep talk, but the Vols are No. 1 -- and students are burning couches to celebrate.

After all, Pryor posted 39 points, 24 rebounds, 10 blocked shots and 6 assists (including a first half triple-double) in the WPIAL AA Boys' Championship as Pryor's Jeannette squad beat up on Beaver Falls, 82-68.
