While most college basketball teams are made up of players from around the nation, the '85 Tigers were a mostly-anonymous collection of players from Memphis and neighboring West Memphis, Ark. That resulted in the team being hard-nosed, hungry, and most importantly, out to shock the world. They did it, too, by turning in a run to the Final Four. Unfortunately, that also led to plenty of problems after the Big Dance. Lee's star faded and he was in and out of the NBA almost immediately. Bedford got hooked on drugs and spent the next 25 years in and out of jail. And reserve guard Aaron Price got shot a couple years later in a carjacking. Triumph and tragedy—this badass team has endured plenty of both.
