Thank you for your patience as we waited until the conclusion of the Memphis Grizzlies/
L A Clippers series to provide more information about May 2013 Commencement proceedings.
As you are likely aware, the Grizzlies have won the first round of the playoffs. The
National Basketball Association (NBA), which dictates the FedEx Forum schedule, has
decided that the Grizzlies will play on Saturday, May 11th at the FedEx Forum. Therefore,
The University of Memphis Commencement activities at the FedEx Forum have been moved
to Sunday, May 12th at 12 noon (12 p.m.) and 4 p.m.
