Now the bad - leading scorer Douglas-Roberts sprained an ankle in the second-round win over Nevada and is a question mark for Thursday's matchup with third-seeded Texas A&M. While the Tigers responded well without Douglas-Roberts, scoring the game's final 14 points, they probably have had the easiest road of any team in the tournament for the first two rounds. Memphis will pit its pressing, run-and-gun style against the stifling, lock-down defense of the Aggies, who will get an added boost by playing in their home state. The Tigers' three regular-season losses came at Georgia Tech, Tennessee and Arizona, but this looms as their toughest test of the season. Memphis entered the NCAAs as the worst free-throw shooting team (61.5 percent) but it made 26-of-34 against Nevada. NEXT GAME: Thursday vs. (3) Texas A&M at San Antonio
