Presley Shows College Spirit At Basketball Clash
PRISCILLA PRESLEY thrilled college basketball fans in Memphis, Tennessee on Saturday (23Feb08) when she turned up courtside for one of the biggest games in the University of Memphis' history. The top ranked Tigers were taking on state rivals and U.S. number two team Tennessee, and Presley, a long time team fan, wasn't about to miss the action. She handed out two scholarships to the university on behalf of Elvis Presley Enterprises before the game and was treated to performance of her former husband's Jailhouse Rock at half-time, complete with cheerleaders dressed up like prisoners. And, to show her team spirit, Presley lit her former home Graceland in blue - the colour of the Tigers - to give the college team a boost. Her efforts didn't pay off, however - Memphis lost America's longest winning streak this season when Tennessee beat them 66-62.
