Penny Hardaway and his Memphis men’s basketball suffered a tough loss on Thursday night, 70-62 to SMU.

It was a third-straight loss for Memphis, and Hardaway vented his frustration at the media, starting with him telling reporters that they know he doesn’t have a full roster.

“Stop asking me stupid (expletive) questions,” he said.

He also said, “We don’t have our full roster. Y’all know we don’t have our full roster. … I’m coaching really hard, my boys are playing really hard, I’m not embarrassed about nothing. We have 4 freshmen starting, y’all need to act like it. Act like we got 17- and 18- and 19-year-olds out here trying to learn how to play against 22-, 23- and 24-year-old guys.

“Come on, man. Stop disrespecting me, bro. Like, don’t do that. I work too (blank) hard. I work way too hard for that. Y’all write all these bulls— articles about me and all I do is work. We got young kids on the floor. They got young kids on the floor.”

Memphis fell to 9-8 overall.
