The Memphis Tigers more than hung around with the top seed in the West Regional, the Gonzaga Bulldogs, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday night. And Chet Holmgren, Gonzaga's lanky unicorn freshman, got dunked on by Memphis' Malcolm Dandridge. Almost like he wasn't even there.

Dandridge is listed at 6-foot-9, 250 pounds, while Holmgren is seven-oh and a shade under 200 pounds. Somehow Holmgren survived.

Holmgren had two points, two rebounds and two blocks in the first half as Memphis took a double-digit lead into halftime. It's a curious showing for such a high profile NBA prospect, but you can't teach height.
