MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - The Grizz Girls dance team is getting ready for Saturday's big game, and offered a sneak peek at what goes into their performances.

"It's really easy to think that a Grizz girl is just a pretty face, but there's so much that goes into what they do," said Grizz Girls Choreographer Tamara Moore.

Moore says these ladies are the one performance group that actually starts at the beginning of the game and goes until the very end, dancing their feet off.

"I love all the energy that you get from the fans. Especially during playoffs. When those intro's are going, the lights are out, pyro, there's so much energy."

By night these women tear up the grind house floor, but by day they are nurses, teachers, and college students. Even with the diverse backgrounds, the girls take their role in the organization seriously.

"As a Grizz girl you're a representative for the community. We're the people that fans get to meet one on one. You know they don't get to see players as much but you know the girls they get to talk to," said Moore.

Grizz Girls say the sweat and long hours of practice pay off on the court.

As for their prediction for Saturday's big playoff game, "Of course were gonna take it game by game and round by round but of course I'm saying were going all the way to finals," said Grizz Girl Tabitha.

"You know it's round two baby. It's playoff time. Let's go! Go Grizz!!!"
