SAN ANTONIO (AP) -Before tip-off, Joey Dorsey was on the big screen inside the Alamodome with a videotaped announcement: ``There's a new powerhouse in college basketball.''
He and the Memphis Tigers sure backed it up.
Unlike a year ago in this building, when his smack talk about Greg Oden backfired, Memphis' burly big man did a great job hunkering down the middle in Memphis' 78-63 victory over UCLA in the national semifinal Saturday night.
Although he didn't score, Dorsey was in the middle of everything all game, providing the rebound, the screen, the blocked shot and even a few assists, all while helping slow Bruins freshman star Kevin Love.
Now the 24-year-old senior gets to end his up-and-down career in style - playing for the national championship Monday night, against either Kansas or North Carolina.
You can almost already hear him saying: ``Bring it on.''
