2010-11 • Memphis • Tiger • Basketball


Game #24 • Memphis vs. UCF • Page 4 Since becoming league foes in the 2005-06 season (six games), Memphis’ margin of victory is 17.5 points. Last year’s contest in Memphis was the closest game in the short series, a 76-70 victory for the Tigers at FedExForum. NEW C-USA SCHEDULE FORMAT IN 2010-11 Well, the league’s schedule-maker likes a little tweaking after five years, so the 2010-11 Conference USA slate takes on a different look with divisional play without separating into divisions. What remains the same in C-USA are the one division standings and the 16-game league schedule for all teams. However, the change comes in who plays who. This season, C-USA basketball plays a schedule based on divisions similar to the set-up in football. Teams in the East (East Carolina, Marshall, Memphis, Southern Miss, UAB, UCF) and West (Houston, Rice, SMU, Tulane, Tulsa, UTEP) play each other twice. The teams cross over and play squads in the other division once. SECOND TIME AROUND THE FIRST TIME For the first time since Conference USA realigned for the 2005-06 year, Memphis and UCF play twice in regular season action. The two squads have already met one time this season, and the Tigers posted a 77-61 victory over the Knights on Jan. 26 in Memphis. The Memphis-UCF “twice-a-season” meetings are new to the league in 2010-11 as Conference USA went to a different scheduling format. DEJA VU? TIGERS HOPE NOT Hopefully, the young Tigers learned their lesson

THIS YEAR’S EARLIER MEETING

Memphis 77 • UCF 61 Jan. 26, 2011 • Memphis, Tenn. Will Barton scored 17 points and Joe Jackson added 12 points as Memphis turned in a solid all-around performance and sent UCF to its fifth-straight loss 7761 in Conference USA action at FedExForum. Barton, playing in front of his father for the first time this season at FedExForum, didn’t disappoint. The freshman wing scored 14 of his 17 points in the first half en route to leading Memphis to a 47-28 opening-half advantage. After an A.J. Rompza layup evened the score at 16-all with 11:09 to play in the first half, the Tigers responded with a 16-4 run to regain control and take a 32-20 lead. The Knights, though, answered with a quick 6-0 run of their own and cut the margin to 32-26 with just over four minutes to go before the break. The Tigers finished the half on a 15-2 run — fueled by seven points from Barton and five from Chris Crawford — to take a 47-28 halftime lead and put the game out of reach. Crawford finished with 10 points in the contest, as four Tigers mustered double-figures in the victory. Though he fouled out with over eight minutes to play, Tarik Black was a force inside for the Tigers and set the tone early with three blocks in the first five minutes of play. Black finished with a career-best five blocks to complement nine points and four rebounds in 22 minutes. Antonio Barton finished with nine points on 4-of-6 shooting. Sophomore Drew Barham, making his fourthconsecutive start, finished with five points, five assists and seven rebounds and came up with every loose ball when needed.

Marcus Jordan, son of NBA great Michael Jordan, scored 13 points, including 7-of-7 from the charity stripe. P.J. Gaynor was the only other Knight to finish in double figures, tallying 10 points in 15 minutes off the bench. The Tigers shot 48.5 percent from the field, while holding the Knights to 35.5 percent from the floor and 6.7 percent from the three-point line (1-of-15). The Memphis defense collected 11 steals and forced 22 UCF turnovers. The Knights out-boarded Memphis 47-33, including pulling down 22 offensive rebounds.

Memphis posted a double-digit home victory over the Thundering Herd 77-61 on Jan. 15, but was out-played in an 85-70 loss to Marshall on Jan. 29. Well, the Tigers defeated UCF 77-61 at FedExForum on Jan. 26, and face the Knights again Wednesday. QUICK SECOND MEETINGS With the new scheduling format in Conference USA, most of Memphis’ games against “twicea-season” league foes are rather close together. Wednesday’s second match-up versus UCF is only 14 days after their first encounter on Jan. 26. Last year, the shortest time between games versus twotime league foes was 19 days (Tulsa Feb. 13 and Mar. 6). The following shows the second meetings versus league opponents and the days between the encounters: Opponent UCF Marshall Southern Miss UAB East Carolina

MEMPHIS IN CONFERENCE USA The Tigers have an all-time record of 182-60 (.752 winning percentage) in Conference USA play. Memphis posted double-digit league wins in 12 of its previous 15 seasons in Conference USA, including a school-record and league-record tying 16

games in 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09. Last season, the Tigers finished second in the Conference USA regular season standings with a 13-3 league mark.

The 2009-10 team’s 13 C-USA wins tied the 2002-03 (13-3 record) and 2005-06 (13-1) squads for the fourth-most league victories in a campaign. Memphis won its first outright C-USA regular season title in 2005-06, and followed that with outright regular season crowns in 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09. Memphis also tied for the C-USA regular season crown in 2003-04 (12-4 record) and 1995-96 (11-3). Memphis also won three National Division titles in 1997-98, 2001-02 and 2002-03, and captured two league White Division championships in 199596 and 1996-97.

CLOSE CALLS UNDER PASTNER The Tigers played another nail-biter in their 6258 non-conference win over Gonzaga Feb. 5, but Memphis fans should be familiar with close-call contests. In just under two years in head coach Josh Pastner’s tenure, the Tigers have played 25 singledigit outcome games, and have a 17-8 record (.680 winning percentage) in those contests. In games decided by four or fewer points, Memphis is 9-3, winning nine of its last 10. This season, the Tigers have a 10-2 record in single-digit outcome games.

want to take cover as Memphis and UCF may be sending several shots into the stands. The Tigers and Knights are Conference USA’s top shot-blocking squads, with UCF first (6.7 bpg) and Memphis second (5.2 bpg). Also, five of C-USA’s top 11 individual shot blockers will play in Wednesday’s game. UCF’s Tom Herzog leads the league at 2.5 bpg, while Keith Clanton is third at 2.1 bpg. Teammate Dwight McCombs is 11th at 1.0 bpg. For Memphis, Tarik Black is fifth (1.6 bpg) and Will Coleman is eighth (1.1 bpg). FEBRUARY FRIENDLY FOR TIGERS While the Tigers have enjoyed success in the month of January (78-20; .796 winning percentage) since 1999-2000, February hasn’t been too bad either over that same period of time. Since 1999-2000, Memphis has a 65-19 record (.774 winning percentage) in February. Last year, the Tigers posted a 6-2 record in February. Memphis has won 36 of its last 40 games (.900 winning percentage) in the month of February, with the four setbacks to No. 2/2 Tennessee 66-62 on Feb. 23, 2008, No. 17/13 Gonzaga 66-58 on Feb. 6, 2010, Houston 92-75 on Feb. 24, 2010, and Tulsa 68-65 on Feb. 2, 2011. TIGERS SEVENTH YOUNGEST IN NCAA No one wants to hear how young the 2010-11 Memphis team is anymore with half the season gone by. However, entering the campaign, the Tigers had the seventh-youngest squad out of 346 NCAA Division I programs, according to kenpom.com. Memphis is one of only four teams to be ranked in the top-25 national polls at some time this season with a top-50 youngest team. Connecticut (12th), Kentucky (36th) and North Carolina (40th) are the other three schools with a top-50 young team that was also ranked in the top-25 of the national polls at some point during 2010-11. The next youngest team in Conference USA is UCF at 102.

In research done by University of North Dakota men’s hoops contact and former Memphis media relations graduate assistant Ryan Powell, Memphis is one of three schools in NCAA Division I to get over 60 percent of its scoring from freshmen. To be exact, the Tigers are getting 61.7 percent of their points from freshmen. The following shows the three NCAA Division I schools getting over 60 percent of their scoring from freshmen and also the total points from freshmen: School Pct. Freshman Total Pts North Dakota 65.1 931 Kentucky 64.3 1,092 Memphis 61.7 1,084 DID YOU KNOW? The Tigers have the most newcomers on the team for the first time since the 1972-73 season. Memphis has eight newcomers on its roster (seven freshmen, one transfer) in 2010-11. The 1972-73 Tigers had 10 newcomers on their roster, and many of those were available because 1972-73 was the first year of freshmen eligibility. That 1972-73 Memphis squad advanced to the NCAA national title game. CHANGING IT UP It’s not a surprise that head coach Josh Pastner has had to juggle his starting lineup in 2010-11 with

“MOOCH” TO THE RESCUE If you talk with people that followed Sun Belt Conference hoops the past two years, they’ll tell you Charles Carmouche’s clutch performances for the Tigers this season are nothing new.

• In first half, scored eight points (layup, two treys) to help turn a 20-15 deficit into a 25-all tie

Gonzaga • Feb. 5 • Hit clutch three-pointer with 1:44 left in regulation to tie game at 56-all, setting up the Tigers’ chance to win the game • His trey ended a 10-2 Gonzaga run

Austin Peay • Dec. 16 • Single-handedly brought Memphis back to give the home team an opportunity for the win • With the Tigers down 43-28 with 13:35 left, scored 11 of his squad’s next 22 points to give Memphis a 50-49 lead at the 5:23 mark

Game #24 • Memphis vs. UCF • Page 9 • Also had three assists that led to seven points in the run, essentially giving him a hand in 18 of the Tigers’ 22 points in the spurt • In addition to the points and assists, pulled down four of his team-high seven boards during the run TIGERS’ TRIFECTA DEFENSE While the Tigers are sixth in Conference USA in three-point field percentage at 31.9 percent, Memphis has picked up its “game” in defending the arc the last seven contests. In the games since Jan. 15 (Marshall twice, Southern Miss, UAB, UCF, Tulsa, Gonzaga), the Tigers have held opponents to 22.3 percent shooting (29-of-130) from the arc, and the following shows that: Opponent 3P-A Opponent 3P-A Marshall.............4-18 @Marshall........ 7-22 @USM..............5-13 Tulsa................. 4-19 @UAB..............2-23 @Gonzaga........ 6-20 UCF...................1-15 DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE For the fifth time this season, a Memphis player recorded a double-double. The latest was senior forward Will Coleman’s 11-point, 10-rebound performance in the Tigers’ 68-65 loss to Tulsa Feb. 2. The following tracks the Tigers’ double-doubles throughout the 2010-11 campaign: Player/Opponent Dbl-Dbl Coleman/Tulsa............................................. 11-10 Coleman/Marshall....................................... 19-11 Witherspoon/Lipscomb............................... 28-14 Stephens/Western Kentucky....................... 13-11 Witherspoon/NW State............................... 24-12 BIGGEST COMEBACKS SINCE 1970-71 Well, history was made in the Tigers’ Jan. 19 game at Southern Miss — or at least history since 1970-71. Memphis overcame an 18-point deficit (29-11 at the 7:49 mark in the first half) to post a 7675 victory over the Golden Eagles. The win from an 18-point deficit is the largest for a Tigers’ team in the last 40 seasons (since 197071). The following lists the top-four comebacks the last 40 years (credit to Matt Dillon for research): Date/Opponent 1-19-11/Southern Miss 1-14-87/Oral Roberts 2-16-85/Florida State 12-17-74/Brown

BACK-TO-BACK LOSSES RARE FOR TIGERS For the first time since the 2004-05 campaign, Memphis lost in consecutive games when the Tigers dropped their two decisions to Marshall 85-70 Jan. 29 and Tulsa 68-65 Feb. 2. Prior to the recent two-game skid, the last time Memphis dropped back-to-back games was the end of the 2004-05 regular season with losses to Saint Louis and Cincinnati.

Hall Transfers To Memphis

6-foot-8 forward from Memphis can practice immediately with Tigers Head coach Josh Pastner announced the transfer of Ferrakohn Hall to the Tigers basketball program Jan. 6. Hall, a transfer from Seton Hall University, is eligible to practice with the team immediately, but will sit out from game action the next two semesters (spring and fall 2011). Hall’s first practice was Jan. 6. The Memphis, Tenn., native’s first game will be at the conclusion of the 2011 fall semester, which is Dec. 15, 2011. “We are welcoming home one of the city’s products in Ferrakohn to the Tigers program,” said Pastner. “Although he can’t suit up for a game until the end of the 2011 fall semester, I expect the addition of Ferrakohn to the squad to provide an impact for our team at every practice, starting Thursday and moving forward.” In his one-and-a-half seasons at Seton Hall, the 6-foot-8 forward played in 39 games and made two starts. Hall averaged 2.9 points and 2.1 rebounds, while shooting 52.2 percent from the field. This season, Hall played in all 10 games and averaged 4.8 points and 3.3 rebounds, before announcing he would transfer from the Seton Hall program in mid-December. He played in his final game in a Pirate uniform on Dec. 19 versus NJIT and had eight points and four rebounds in 23 minutes. Hall scored a career-high 15 points in the Pirates’ 104-79 win at UMass on Dec. 11. He also had between both two-game losing streaks was 213 contests. Also, in case you’re wondering, the last time Memphis had more than a two-game losing streak was the end of the 2004-05 regular season. The Tigers closed regular season play with four-consecutive losses to Charlotte, Louisville, Saint Louis and Cincinnati. BARTON A LATE-GAMER If head coach Josh Pastner had his choice, he’d prefer Will Barton get his motor going a little earlier in games. However, later is better than never, and that’s what the 6-foot-6 guard in both Tigers’ wins over Southern Miss and UAB, and the following details that: UAB • Jan. 22 • Netted 10 of his 17 team-high points in the final 7:57 of regulation and overtime • Hit two huge treys late in the second half — the first to cut a UAB lead to 58-56 with 5:10 left and the second with 54 seconds left in regulation to give Memphis a 68-66 lead • Just prior to the trey to give Memphis the lead, assisted on Tarik Black’s layup • Baseline floater with :47 left in overtime gave the Tigers a 73-68 advantage

career bests for field goals (5), free throws (5) and free throw attempts (7) versus the Minutemen. In a Dec. 8 setback to Arkansas in the SEC/Big East Invitational, Hall earned his second collegiate start and played a season-best 26 minutes. He grabbed a career-high seven rebounds versus the Razorbacks. As a freshman in 2009-10, Hall played in 30 games, averaging 2.4 points and 1.7 rebounds and shooting 58.8 percent from the field. He scored a season-best nine points versus Navy and pulled down a season-high six boards versus Hartford. In his first collegiate start at Georgetown, Hall had eight points and three rebounds. Prior to his collegiate career in South Orange, N.J., Hall was a 2009 Tennessee All-State first team pick at White Station High School. As a senior in 2008-09, he averaged 15.4 points and 9.7 boards in helping the Spartans to the 2009 TSSAA Class AAA state crown, the school’s first championship since 2004. In that 2009 title game, Hall grabbed nine rebounds and blocked three shots. For his efforts, Hall was an All-District 15 pick and a Commercial Appeal “Best of the Preps” first team selection. In his two seasons at White Station, Hall helped lead the Spartans to a 58-20 overall record and back-to-back appearances in the TSSAA Class AAA title game (champion in 2009; runner-up in 2008). Entering his senior season in 2008-09, Hall was rated one of the nation’s top forwards. Rivals.com ranked Hall the country’s No. 46 power forward, while ESPNU.com rated him the nation’s No. 38 small forward. Southern Miss • Jan. 19 • Netted 10 of his team-best 15 points in the final 9:23 of the game • Scored five points (jumper, trey) in a 9-4 run to turn a 62-60 deficit into a 69-66 lead • His three-pointer in that spurt gave Memphis its first lead of the game at 69-66 with 3:17 on the clock • Two minutes later, had a put-back dunk to keep the Tigers in the lead at 73-70 with 1:26 left MR. CLUTCH BECOMES MR. STOPPER Coming out of high school, Chris Crawford had a reputation for scoring the ball and shooting the three-pointer. Well, in his freshman season as a Tiger, the Memphis, Tenn., native is adding defensive stopper to his resume. In Memphis’ win over UAB Jan. 22, Crawford harrassed the Blazers’ top three-point threat, Jamarr Sanders, the entire contest. Sanders entered the contest shooting nearly 40 percent from the arc (39.5 percent), but Crawford held him scoreless from the three-point line (0-of-10) and forced him into five turnovers. Although the Tigers lost to Tulsa Feb. 2, Crawford guarded Conference USA’s leading scorer, Justin Hurtt. The Golden Hurricane senior guard entered the game with a 20.5 scoring average, but Crawford held him to 11 points on 4-of-18 field goals and 0-of-3 from the arc.

Game #24 • Memphis vs. UCF • Page 10 LAST MEETING IN ORLANDO

Memphis 73 • UCF 66 Jan. 10, 2009 • UCF Arena Robert Dozier, Antonio Anderson and Tyreke Evans each scored 15 points, and Memphis rallied from an eight-point, second-half deficit to beat UCF 73-66 in a Conference USA match-up. The game was the Knights’ Conference USA home opener. It was also UCF’s first C-USA game in its new UCF Arena. Memphis snapped the Knights’ 12-game home winning streak in front of the largest crowd in UCF history (9,825). UCF took a 53-48 lead on a three-pointer by Isaac Sosa with 14:52 remaining. But Memphis’ defense didn’t allow the Knights a field goal for the next 11:18. During that period, the Tigers outscored UCF 21-7 to take a 69-60 lead. Jermaine Taylor’s basket with 51 seconds left brought the Knights to 69-66, but a basket by Evans and two free throws by Doneal Mack, who finished with 11 points, sealed the Memphis victory. Taylor finished with 24 points, Tony Davis scored 16 and Kenrick Zondervan finished with 10 points for UCF UCF led by eight as late as the 16:09 mark in the second half after a layup by Tony Davis. Memphis responded with a 6-0 run, capped with a offensive rebound and put-back by Dozier at the 15:02

In two early games in November, Crawford was switched to guard Miami’s (Fla.) Durand Scott and Northwestern State’s Will Pratt in the second half, and the Tigers’ 6-foot-4 guard limited both players’ touches. TIGERS’ RECENT BUZZER BEATERS Charles Carmouche’s three-pointer with 1.2 seconds left on the clock at Southern Miss to give the Tigers the 76-75 win should be a common occurrance for Memphis fans. In recent years, the Tigers have had several “beat-the-buzzer” moments, and the following chronicles those (TV in parenthesis): 2010-11 vs. Southern Miss (CSS) — After the Golden Eagles hit 1-of-2 FT with :06.7 on the clock, the ball is inbounded to Joe Jackson, who dribbles up the right side of the court. Once he gets past midcourt, Jackson throws a cross-court pass to Charles Carmouche, who swishes a three-pointer with :01.2 left for the 76-75 win. 2009-10 vs. St. John’s (NIT; ESPN2) — After the Red Storm ties with game at 71-all with 9.9 seconds left, Memphis inbounds the ball to Elliot Williams, who is double-teamed and gives up the ball to Wesley Witherspoon. He then drives to the basket and throws in an attempt high off the glass that hangs

mark. The Knights, however, responded with a quick three to extend the lead back to five. The game was tied at 59-all at the 8:54 mark, after two free throws from A.J. Tyler. Memphis took the lead with a layup by Anderson and never relinquished it.

on the rim before falling through at the buzzer for the 73-71 win. 2008-09 vs. Tulsa (ESPN2) — After 2 FT gives Tulsa a 5453 lead with 4.5 seconds, Memphis runs the “Maryland” play. Willie Kemp hits Antonio Anderson with a pass in stride near mid-court. Anderson drives all the way to the basket and lays in a shot over Tulsa center Jerome Jordan at the buzzer for the 55-54 win. The victory keeps the Tigers’ C-USA win streak intact. 2007-08 vs. UAB (CSS) — The Tigers, ranked No. 1 in the nation with a 23-0 record, found themselves down to rival UAB 77-70 with 1:21 left. After a Blazer FT makes it 78-76 with under 15 seconds left, Chris Douglas-Roberts drives the lane and is fouled with :06.5 on the clock. He hits the FT to give Memphis a 79-78 lead. UAB’s game-winning attempt comes after the buzzer, and the Tigers escape with the win. 2006-07 vs. Texas A&M (NCAA; CBS) — With the Tigers down 64-63, Andre Allen shoots a jumper that ignites a flurry of action at the rim in which Memphis gets a couple of chances to score. On the final rebound, Antonio Anderson is fouled with :03.1 left. Anderson hits both free throws for a 65-64 lead. The Aggies’ inbounds attempt is deflected out-of-bounds near mid-court by Robert Dozier and clock runs

down to under two seconds. Texas A&M gets off a halfcourt shot, but misses and Memphis wins. vs. Gonzaga (ESPN) — After two FT, Gonzaga takes a 77-76 lead with :17.6 left in OT. The Tigers respond with a Chris Douglas-Roberts “cut-acrossthe-lane” layup with :05.6 on the clock for a 78-77 lead. Douglas-Roberts is fouled, but misses the FT. Gonzaga rebounds, but Jeremy Pargo’s halfcourt heave bounces off the rim and Memphis wins. PASTNER SEVENTH-YOUNGEST HEAD COACH IN NCAA DIVISION I IN 2010-11 If you ask Josh Pastner about his age, he just says it’s a number. And it is. However, Pastner’s age makes him one of the youngest head coaches in NCAA Division I in 2010-11. The following lists the youngest head coaches in NCAA Division I: Coach, School Age Birthdate Andy Toole, Robert Morris 30 Sept. 11, 1980 Jason Capel, Appalachian State 30 Jan. 15, 1980 Brian Wardle, UW-Green Bay 31 Oct. 10, 1979 Dane Fife, IPFW 31 July 26, 1979 Adam Walsh, Centenary 31 May 7, 1979 Jason James, UT Martin 33 Oct. 10, 1977 Josh Pastner, Memphis 33 Sept. 26, 1977 Bobby Washington, Grambling 33 June 1, 1977 John Gallagher, Hartford 33 May 27, 1977 Joe Pasternack, New Orleans 33 Apr. 15, 1977 QUICKEST TO 40 WINS With the Tigers’ 77-61 win over UCF Jan. 26, Josh Pastner recorded the 40th victory in his short tenure at Memphis. The UCF victory tied Pastner with Wayne Yates for the second-quickest to reach the 40-win plateau in the program’s history. The following lists the Tiger head coaches that won 40 games the quickest: Head Coach/Years Bob Vanatta/1957-59 Josh Pastner/2010-11# Wayne Yates/1975-76# Gene Bartow/1971-73 Larry Finch/1987-88# John Calipari/2001-02# Dean Ehlers/1963-65 Eugene Lambert/1952-54 Dana Kirk/1981-82

#19/19 Memphis 72 • Miami (Fla.) 68 Nov. 15, 2010 • Memphis, Tenn. In a game that had 58 fouls, 13 ties and 15 lead changes, No. 19/19 Memphis scrapped its way to a 72-68 nonconference victory over Miami (Fla.) to tip off ESPN’s 24 Hours of Hoops in front of 17,783 raucous fans at FedExForum. Trailing 63-59 after a three-point bucket by Malcolm Grant at the four minute mark in the second half, Wesley Witherspoon intercepted a pass near mid-court and fed a streaking Chris Crawford to narrow the margin to 63-61. After a missed shot by Miami, Witherspoon drew a fouled and calmly stepped to the line and knocked down two from the charity stripe to even the mark at 63 with 2:26 to play. Miami countered as Durand Scott drew another foul and made two free throws to put the Hurricanes back in front 65-63. Crawford again answered the bell, this time with a corner trifecta that sent FedExForum into a frenzy and put Memphis ahead 66-65. Scott went back to the line on the next possession, this time making one of two to again tie the ballgame at 66. Charles Carmouche and Joe Jackson would each make a pair of free throws to keep the Canes’ late push at bay before Antonio Barton’s free throw with 1.5 seconds left put the game out of reach 72-68. Jackson finished with 17 points on 5-of-11 shooting to lead the Tigers, who won despite shooting just 33.9 percent and getting dominated 51-31 on the glass. C armouche added 13 points, including 8-of-10 from the charity stripe, and five steals in a team-high 31 minutes. Witherspoon (12) and Antonio Barton (10) were the only other Tigers that finished in double figures. The Miami backcourt of Scott and Grant, which came in averaging a combined 43 points, didn’t disappoint. The duo combined for nearly half of Miami’s points. Scott finished with 20 on 5-of-11 field goals and 9-of-11 free throws, while Grant finished with 18 points. H urricane center Reggie Johnson, who was limited in the first half due to foul trouble, found a rhythm after the break and finished with a double-double of 12 points and 12 rebounds. Memphis held Arian Foster, who led the ACC in three-point shooting last season with a mark of 42.1 percent, scoreless in 22 minutes of action. Foster finished 0-of-4 from the arc, and Miami shot just 15.8 percent as a team from three.

Global Sports Challenxge Wesley Witherspoon netted his first career doubledouble with 24 points and 12 rebounds and Will Barton added 22 points, including 11-straight in the second half, to lift Memphis past Northwestern State 94-79. Led by 14 first-half points from Witherspoon, the Tigers took a 57-44 lead into the break, but the Demons countered with a 21-9 run to open the second half and take the lead 63-61 at the 13:12 mark. The Tigers responded immediately. Joe Jackson found an open Barton in the corner for a trifecta to put the Tigers back on top 64-63. Barton then picked Devon Baker’s pocket near midcourt before gathering the ball and going up for an emphatic two-handed jam to extend the Memphis advantage to 66-63. The Demons’ William Mosley answered on the other end with a layup to narrow the gap to 66-65, but Barton countered again with another three-pointer to extend the Memphis advantage to 69-65. From that point, the Tigers closed the game on a 25-14 run. Barton finished with eight boards and three steals to complement his 22 points in 31 minutes of action.

#14/15 Memphis 102 • Tennessee Martin 80 Nov. 23, 2010 • Memphis, Tenn. Global Sports Challenge

Behind Wesley Witherspoon’s 20 points, No. 19/19 Memphis showed grit and tenacity on its way to a 70-61 victory over LSU in front of 7,941 fans at BancorpSouth Arena in the Global Sports Challenge. It was the largest crowd to watch a basketball game at BancorpSouth Arena. Memphis found itself in a first-half hole for the first time this season, as LSU took a 34-33 lead into the break on the strength of 12 first-half points from Aaron Dotson. After the break, Memphis came out of the locker room firing and used a 6-0 early second-half run to regain the lead at 39-34 at the 17:23 mark after a Joe Jackson steal and coast-to-coast finish. LSU, though. responded with a 6-2 run to narrow the gap to 41-40 on a contested triple from Andre Stringer, who finished with a team-high 13 points. Chris Crawford answered on the ensuing possession for Memphis, driving through the left side of the lane and using the backboard to go up and under for an “and-one” layup that keyed an 8-0 run for a 49-40 advantage. LSU again responded. This time, the visiting Tigers put together a 12-4 run to climb within one at 53-52 at the 5:39 mark. An old fashioned three-point play by Jackson put Memphis ahead 55-52, before LSU answered with a trifecta from Ralston Turner and a layup by Stringer to take the lead 57-56. After Tarik Black split a pair of free throws to notch the game at 57, Jackson found Crawford alone in the corner. Crawford, who had struggled finding his range throughout the game, calmly received the pass and swished home the three-ball to put Memphis in front for good at 6057 with 3:53 to play. An emphatic dunk by Witherspoon on the next Tiger possession gave Memphis a 62-57 lead with less than three minutes to play. Another triple from Crawford at the 1:02 mark extended the Tiger lead to eight at 67-59 and put the game out of reach. Jackson iced the game in the final minute, hitting 3-of-4 from the charity stripe.

Will Coleman scored a career-high 20 points and added seven rebounds off the bench to lead No. 14/15 Memphis past Tennessee Martin 102-80 in a non-conference encounter. Coleman, who was held scoreless in 13 minutes of action in the previous contest against LSU, responded in a big way against the Skyhawks. The 6-foot-9 junior scored on an array of crowd-pleasing and emphatic dunks, as he led the Tigers to their second 100-point plus performance of the season. Freshman Will Barton, also coming off the bench, finished with 20 points, five rebounds and six assists, and junior Angel Garcia finished with 15 points and nine boards in a reserve role. The Tigers reserves racked up 60 points against the Skyhawks. Joe Jackson (16 points) and Wesley Witherspoon (14) were the only other Tigers in double figures. Memphis outplayed Tennessee Martin in nearly every facet of the game, leading from start to finish and assisting on 29 of 38 baskets. Memphis also took advantage of its superiority in size, accumulating a season-high 56 points in the paint. Witherspoon started the scoring outbreak for Memphis on the first possession of the game, as he controlled the ball at the top of the key before driving for an easy lefty lay-in. Witherspoon scored seven of the first 11 points for Memphis, and the Tigers continued to get easy looks throughout the contest, finishing 38-of-74 from the field (51.4 percent) and converting 19 Skyhawk turnovers into 31 points. Reuben Clayton, a Memphis native, led the way for Tennessee Martin, scoring 20 points and pulling down 10 boards. However, 15 of Clayton’s 20 points came in the opening half. Terence Smith (14 points) and Mike Liabo (10) were the only other Skyhawks in double figures.

#14/15 Memphis 78 • Arkansas St. 71 (OT) Dec. 1, 2010 • Memphis, Tenn. Will Barton scored 20 points and added six rebounds in a career-high 39 minutes to lead No. 14/15 Memphis past Arkansas State 78-71 in a non-conference overtime thriller at FedExForum. Memphis sprinted out to a 25-7 advantage after the Red Wolves made just two of their first 20 attempts from the floor and cruised to a 35-24 halftime advantage. Arkansas State opened the second half on a 9-2 run to cut the lead to 37-33 at the 17:54 mark, but the Tigers responded and quickly built the lead back to 50-40 with 14:13 to play. The Red Wolves, however, wouldn’t go away, as they cut the lead to as few as three on three different occasions before a three-point basket by Daniel Bryant cut the Tigers’ lead to 65-64 with 2:10 to play. Bryant made one-of-two free throws with 35 seconds remaining to tie the game at 65-all and send it to overtime. With Memphis big man Will Coleman fouled out, Arkansas State fed it down low to Martavius Adams, who converted back-to-back buckets to give the Red Wolves their first lead of the game at 69-65 with 3:52 remaining in overtime. Memphis finally snapped out of its offensive funk and went on a decisive 9-0 run sparked by a determined drive and left-handed layup by Wesley Witherspoon to narrow the gap to 69-67. Joe Jackson stole the ball on the ensuing Red Wolves’ possession and drove for a fast-break layup to knot the game at 69-all. Charles Carmouche buried two free throws on Memphis’ next possession after being fouled on a drive to put the Tigers back in front at 71-69. After an Adams’ missed jumper, Jackson again drove to the hole, and this time, converting a three-point play to give Memphis a 74-69 advantage and put the game out of reach. Jackson finished with 10 points, joining Barton (20), Witherspoon (10) and Antonio Barton (1) as the only Tigers to finish in double figures. Bryant finished with 16 points on 5-of-17 shooting to lead Arkansas State. Memphis native Donald Boone chipped in 12 points. Adams (11 points) and Malcoln Kirkland (10) also finished in double figures for the Red Wolves.

#14/15Memphis 77 • Western Kentucky 61 Dec. 4, 2010 • Memphis, Tenn. Coming into Saturday’s matchup against Western Kentucky, Memphis (7-0) needed someone to emerge on the inside. D.J. Stephens did just that by totaling career highs in points (11) and rebounds (13) in a series of abovethe-rim plays en route to leading the Tigers to a 77-61 victory over the Hilltoppers (3-5) at FedExForum. Freshmen Joe Jackson (15) and Tarik Black (11) were the only other Tigers to finish in double-digits in a game that saw Memphis commit 21 turnovers and lose the battle of the boards, 43-41. WKU finished with 25 offensive rebounds, which resulted in 21 second-chance points. The Tigers overcame that sloppy play by exploiting their size on the inside and forcing the Hilltoppers into 20 turnovers of their own. Memphis finished with 46 points in the paint and 20 points off the 21 WKU turnovers. WKU was led by 16 points from Sergio Kerusch, who added eight rebounds in 29 minutes. Ken Brown (10) was the only other Hilltopper that finished in double figures. The Memphis defense held Juan Patillo to just six points on 1-of-10 shooting from the floor. Pattillo came in as WKU’s leading scorer at nearly 17 points per contest. Memphis took a 47-31 advantage into halftime and was keyed by 11 first-half points from Jackson, who also provided what was perhaps the highlight of the season thus far. The Hilltoppers refused to go away, however, as they cut the lead to single digits on two different occasions in the second half. Memphis was able to respond each time, however. Kerusch made it a 53-45 game at the 13:06 mark on a layup before Wesley Witherspoon responded with an emphatic slam for Memphis on the other end. WKU narrowed the deficit to nine again seven minutes later, this time on Pattillo’s only field goal of the night at the 6:44 mark that narrowed the Tiger lead to 61-52. Five straight points by Will Coleman, however, effectively put the game out of reach, as the Tigers closed the game on a 16-9 run. Coleman and Witherspoon each finished with seven points in the contest. Black’s 11 points were a career-high, and the freshmen from Memphis, Tenn., also added a career-best four rejections.

#4/4 Kansas 81 • #13/14 Memphis 68 Dec. 7, 2010 • New York, N.Y. Jimmy V Classic Kansas’ physical play proved too much for Memphis, as the No. 13/14 Tigers fell to the No. 4/4 Jayhawks 8168 at Madison Square Garden. The game was part of the Jimmy V Classic doubleheader. Will Barton scored 16 points on 7-of-15 shooting and and pulled down seven rebounds in the losing effort for Memphis. Chris Crawford added 15 points, while Charles Carmouche was the only other Tiger in double figures with 12 points. Memphis battled back from being down eight points on two different occasions in the first half and narrowed the deficit to 37-35 at halftime on the strength of Crawford’s 12 first-half points. Tarik Black tied the game at 39-all for the Tigers with two free throws at the 18:21 mark of the second half, but Kansas countered with a 9-0 run to recapture the lead 4839 at the 16:05 mark. The Tigers narrowed the margin to 50-45 on a layup from Will Barton with 14:07 to play, but that was the closest Memphis got the remainder of the contest. Kansas went on a 10-1 run capped by an Elijah Johnson dunk at the 10:10 mark to extend the lead to double digits for good. Twin post players Markieff and Marcus Morris led the attack for the Jayhawks, scoring 16 points and 14 points, respectively. Tyshawn Taylor (13 points) and Thomas Robinson (10) also finished in double digits for Kansas. Memphis struggled shooting the ball, making just 27-of-72 (37.5 percent) attempts from the floor, including 6-of-18 (33.3 percent) from beyond the arc. Black and Witherspoon added eight points apiece, but went at combined 6-of-21 from the floor. The Tigers forced 22 Jayhawk turnovers, but were outworked on the glass 44-31.

#18/19 Memphis 70 • Austin Peay 68 (OT) Dec. 16, 2010 • Memphis, Tenn. Despite trailing by as many as 15 points in the second half, Memphis fought back to force overtime and eventually escaped with a 70-68 non-conference victory over Austin Peay. The Tigers committed 14 first-half turnovers and shot just 34.8 percent in the opening period, but still enjoyed a 24-19 cushion heading into the break. Four-straight turnovers to start the second half quickly turned into a 16-0 Governors run that put Memphis on its heels. Scoring 21-straight over seven minutes that spanned both halves, Austin Peay turned a 24-14 deficit into a 35-24 lead just three minutes into the second half. Sparked by his own four-point play at the 16:45 mark, Charles Carmouche single-handedly willed the Tigers back into the game by scoring or assisting on Memphis’ first 20 points of the second half. The Tigers finally came back to tie the contest after a corner triple from Chris Crawford that capped a 19-4 Memphis run and knotted the game at 47-all with 8:35 to play. Memphis again was trailing in the closing minutes. Down 56-53 with 27 seconds left, Will Barton drew a foul and headed to the line. Barton made the first and missed the second, but a fortuitous bounce off the rebound allowed Memphis to get the ball back trailing 56-54. The other Barton brother responded this time, as Antonio took the ball on the right wing and took two dribbles before lofting a 12-foot floater up and in to tie the game at 56 and force overtime. Clutch three-point shooting by Memphis in the extra period proved to be enough to lift the Tigers past the Governors. Crawford nailed two trifectas and assisted on another by Will Barton, as the Tigers jumped out to a 68-62 advantage with just under a minute to play. Austin Peay refused to lay down, tough, as triples from Melvin Baker and Justin Blake brought the Governors back within 69-68 with 13 seconds to play. After Will Barton made 1-of-2 free throws to extend the advantage to 70-68, the Tigers locked down on defense and forced a missed three-point attempt from Blake at the buzzer. Austin Peay won the battle on the glass 51-41, and both squads committed over 20 miscues apiece (UofM 24; APSU 20).

Freshman Joe Jackson scored a career-high 23 points and Memphis survived another close call, as the Tigers hung on to beat Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 68-63 at FedExForum. The Tigers found themselves ahead 20-14 with eight minutes to go in the first half, but cold shooting allowed the Islanders to reel off an 8-0 run to grab the lead at 2220 with 6:10 to go before the break. Memphis responded with its own 6-0 mini-run, but Texas A&M-Corpus Christi finished the first half on a 7-2 spurt to claim a 29-28 advantage going into intermission. Memphis came out of the break and regained the lead 33-29 after a triple from Jackson and a layup from Will Coleman, who finished with 15 points, nine boards, and four blocks in a team-high 32 minutes. The Islanders again responded and went on a 9-2 run to retake the lead at 38-35 with 12:25 remaining in the game. Memphis battled back again and trailed by only two points at 45-43 with just under 10 minutes to play. After back-to-back layups from Jackson, Antonio Barton drove hard to the bucket for the hoop and was fouled. He converted the free throw for an old-fashioned three-point play that put Memphis ahead for good 46-45. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi cut the lead to three on four different occasions in the final 6:14, but clutch free throw shooting and solid ball handling allowed the Tigers to keep the Islanders at bay. Drew Barham split a pair of free throws with 33 seconds remaining to make it a two-possession game at 6561, and after his second free throw missed the mark, Chris Crawford got the rebound. Memphis played keep-away for 12 seconds until Will Barton was fouled with :21 left. He hit both charity tosses to put the game away for Memphis. Charles Carmouche, coming off a 16-point performance against Austin Peay, was the only other Tiger to finish in double figures. The junior transfer from New Orleans finished with 12 points and six rebounds in 31 minutes. Hollis Hill led the Islanders with 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting in 21 minutes off the bench. Terence Jones and Justin Reynolds finished with 11 points apiece. Demond Watt led the visitors on the glass with eight boards.

Georgetown’s Austin Freeman scored a game-high 24 points and Julian Vaughn posted a double-double of 15 points and 10 boards to lift the No. 10/9 Hoyas to an 86-69 non-conference win over No. 16/17 Memphis in an ESPN2 nationally-televised game from FedExForum. Chris Wright added 19 points for the visitors. Will Barton led the Tigers with 18 points, seven rebounds and three assists. Will Coleman had 12 points and six boards, while Tarik Black added 10 points. After an inspiring late first-half run, Memphis opened the second half hoping to continue that momentum swing. The more-experienced Hoyas, though, had another plan — open the second half with a spurt to put the game out of reach. And that’s what Georgetown did. The Hoyas went on a 10-4 run to start the second half and extended their halftime lead from 40-36 to 50-40. Vaughn paced the run with four of his 15 points. Memphis cut the Hoyas’ lead to nine at 54-45 on a D.J. Stephens thunder dunk at the 15:39 mark, but the Tigers got no closer the rest of the contest. Memphis cut the Georgetown lead to nine points three other times, with the last coming at 67-58 with 6:20 left. From there, the Hoyas steadily pulled away for the win, outscoring Memphis 19-11 in the final six minutes. In the first half, the game was neck-and-neck in the early going. Memphis grabbed a four-point lead at 22-18 at the 10:03 mark, but Georgetown responded with an 8-0 spurt to take a 26-22 advantage. The Hoyas did not trail again in the game. Georgetown shot 56.9 percent from the floor and 45.5 percent from the three-point line. The Hoyas had 18 assists and only 11 turnovers. Memphis hit 39.4 percent from the field and 31.6 percent from the arc. The Tigers won the battle on the boards, out-rebounding Georgetown 36-33. The Tigers dished out 15 assists, but committed 14 turnovers.

Wesley Witherspoon posted a double-double of 28 points and 14 boards and Will Barton added 15 points, six boards and five assists to lift No. 21/22 Memphis to an 8870 non-conference victory over Lipscomb. Joe Jackson (13 points) and Antonio Barton (12) also netted double figures for the Tigers. Jackson dished out a career-high eight assists, while Witherspoon had three boards and three steals. Will Coleman scored six points and grabbed seven boards. Adnan Hodzic led Lipscomb with 22 points and seven boards. Josh Slater added 12 points, four boards and six assists (team high), and Brandon Brown scored 10 points and pulled down four boards. The Tigers led 29-16 with 8:32 left in the first half and looked like they were going to pull away. The Bisons, though, put together a 16-6 rally to cut the Memphis advantage to 35-32 with 2:01 on the clock. Hodzic (10 points) and Slater (four points) paced the Lipscomb run. After a Lipscomb 30-second timeout, Memphis closed the first half with a 7-0 spurt to take a 42-32 lead into halftime. Will Barton started the run with a dunk, and Chris Crawford struck next with a three-pointer. Antonio Barton closed the spurt with a layup. In the second half, Lipscomb stayed within striking distance at 59-53 with 13:26 left in the game. The Tigers, though, answered with a 16-6 run to increase their lead to 75-59 with 6:52 left and put the game out of reach. Antonio Barton ignited the spurt with two treys. Memphis shot 54 percent from the field and 50 percent from the three-point line (11-of-22). The Tigers recorded 21 assists on 34 made baskets. Memphis won the battle of the glass for the third-straight game 42-23. The Bisons shot 46 percent from the field and 72.7 percent from the charity stripe. Lipscomb, however, managed to hit only 19 percent from the arc (4-of-21). The Memphis defense forced 15 Bisons turnovers, but the Tigers committed 18 misuces.

Antonio Barton scored a career-high 24 points, including 20 in the second half, and No. 21/22 Memphis survived a three-point shooting onslaught to defeat Tennessee State 91-86 at FedExForum. After defeating Lipscomb 88-70 Dec. 30, Memphis again found itself in back-and-forth affair, as Tennessee State seemed to have a long range answer for every Tiger run. Both teams shot above 50 percent in the first half, as Tennessee State connected on 10-of-11 three-point attempts in the first 20 minutes of play. Memphis countered with solid offensive sets in the halfcourt and used its advantage inside to counter the shooting barrage. Led by Tarik Black’s 15 first-half points off the bench, Memphis came back to tie the game at 43-all at halftime after trailing 35-28 with less than eight minutes to play. Will Barton also added 10 in the first half. Tennessee State didn’t slow down after halftime, as the visiting Tigers came out firing in the second half and put Memphis on its heels after a layup from Kenny Moore put Tennessee State ahead 60-52 with 13:06 to play. On the next Memphis possession, the Tigers swung the ball around the perimeter before Joe Jackson found Antonio Barton open at the top of the key. Barton took the pass and drilled the open look, and then did the same thing on the next two Memphis trips. Barton’s three-straight trifectas brought Memphis to within one at 62-61. Both Tigers went back and forth for the remainder of the game — there were nine lead changes in the contest — before Antonio Barton’s fifth triple with 2:34 remaining gave Memphis the lead for good at 82-79. A three-pointer by Moore with 22 seconds left brought Tennessee State back to within 87-86, but Memphis scored four-straight points to finish the game. Moore led the three-point onslaught for Tennessee State, as the forward made 5-of-6 from deep en route to scoring 22 points. Wil Peters (17), Robert Covington (16), Patrick Miller (12) and Jacquan Nobles (11) all finished in double figures for Tigers, which was seeking their first ever victory over a ranked foe.

Tennessee made 12-of-21 from long range and led from start to finish in a 104-84 victory over Memphis at Thompson-Boling Arena. Will Coleman scored 17 points and Will Barton added 14 of his own, but the Tigers struggled from the field (30of-65) and the charity stripe (14-of-26) and couldn’t mount a comeback against the hot-shooting Volunteers. Melvin Goins started the barrage of trifectas for Tennessee just 44 seconds into the game when he took a pass from Scotty Hopson and drained the triple for an early 3-0 advantage. Memphis fought back to narrow the deficit to 14-10 after a triple from Charles Carmouche at the 15:40 mark, but Tennessee responded with 10-0 run to seize control of the contest and never looked back. Despite the Tigers closing the first half on a 7-0 run sparked by five points from D.J. Stephens, the Volunteers took a 49-34 lead into the break. Freshmen Tobias Harris led the way for Tennessee, scoring 17 points and grabbing 13 points in a double-double effort, as the Volunteers outrebounded the Tigers 41-33 and scored 42 points in the paint. Scotty Hopson went 6-of12 from the field en route to a 16-point performance, while Goins made all four of his attempts from deep on the way to scoring 15 points. Stephens finished with nine points and six rebounds in the losing effort, while Drew Barham and Antonio Barton finished with nine points and eight points, respectively. Memphis committed 16 turnovers which led to 23 Tennessee points and allowed the Volunteers to score 19 points in transition. Tennessee shot 53.7 percent from the floor and 57.1 percent from the arc. Memphis hit 46.2 percent from the field and 45.5 percent from the three-point line.

Despite going scoreless from the floor for the final 5:23, Memphis scrapped out a 61-58 victory over East Carolina in the Conference USA opener for both teams. After allowing 104 points in a Jan. 5 loss at Tennessee, defense was a focal point, as Memphis held the Pirates to 5-of-17 shooting in the opening half. The Tigers out-rebounded ECU 21-11 en route to a 33-21 advantage at the half. A slow second-half start again proved troublesome for Memphis. The Pirates outscored the Tigers 28-16 in the first 12 minutes to tie the game at 49-all. East Carolina hit 5-of-8 from beyond the arc in its run. The Pirates briefly held the lead at 52-51 after an andone dunk from Darrius Morrow at the 7:16 mark. Memphis regained the lead on a pair of free throws from Tarik Black on its next possession, but again found itself tied with East Carolina at 56-all with 3:51 to play. Memphis, however, is no stranger to late-game drama, as seven of its 12 victories have been by nine or fewer points, and the Tigers again rallied late for the win against the Pirates. Wesley Witherspoon stepped to the line with 2:54 to play and swished two free throws through to put Memphis ahead for good at 58-56. Free throws from Antonio Barton and Joe Jackson on the Tigers’ next two possessions gave Memphis a 61-58 lead with :03 left. Chris Crawford then intercepted a pass intended to set up Brock Young for a game-tying three-pointer to seal the victory. Black finished with 12 points and seven rebounds while battling foul trouble throughout the second half. Coleman finished with 11 points, including going 7-of-12 from the charity stripe, as the senior finished in double figures for the second-straight game. Morrow led the way for the Pirates, finishing with 17 points and eight rebounds in a game-high 33 minutes. Jamar Abrams (15) and Young (10) were the only other ECU players to finish in double figures.

Memphis 77 • Marshall 61 Jan. 15, 2011 • Memphis, Tenn.

The host SMU Mustangs used a 17-0 second-half run and shot 56.3 percent from beyond the arc en route to upsetting Memphis 64-58 in a Conference USA encounter at Moody Coliseum. The Tigers led 48-37 after a dunk by Tarik Black at the 11:18 mark. However, a Memphis cold-shooting streak coupled with empty trips at the free throw line — 0-of-9 from the charity stripe in the second half — were too much for the Tigers to overcome. Papa Dia scored five-straight points, capped by a reverse layup and three-point play with 3:16 left, to give SMU its first lead of the game at 51-48. Collin Mangrum, who finished with 15 points in the game, then buried a triple on the next possession to extend the lead to 54-48 with under three minutes to go. Joe Jackson responded on the next possession with a layup — the first Tiger score since the 11:20 mark — to cut the lead to 54-50 with 2:02 to play. Jackson was whistled for palming the basketball on the next possession, however, and Magrum capitalized with a follow-up layup on the ensuing Mustangs’ possession to push the lead back to six at 56-50. A missed jumper by Jackson on the next possession forced the Tigers to foul, and Robert Nyakundi made two free throws to give SMU its largest lead of the night at 5850 with 39 seconds on the clock. Wesley Witherspoon and Will Barton connected from long range in the final 30 seconds, but the Tigers missed five free throws down the stretch and couldn’t close the gap. Jackson led the Tigers with 15 points, while Witherspoon was the only other Memphis player to finish in double figures with 11 points. Tarik Black added nine points and five rebounds. For a second-straight season, Dia led the Mustangs to a victory at home over the Tigers, scoring 21 points and pulling down 10 boards. Nyakundu and Mangrum added 15 points of apiece for SMU.

Senior Will Coleman posted his first double-double of the season (19 points, 11 rebounds), and Memphis scored 48 points in the paint as the Tigers never trailed in a 77-61 Conference USA victory over Marshall at FedExForum. After the Tigers jumped out to an early 8-2 advantage, the Thundering Herd battled back to tie the game at 15-all on a Dago Pena trey. A nifty layup by Antonio Barton and a triple from Charles Carmouche on the ensuing Memphis possessions sparked a 20-0 run as Memphis extended its lead to 35-15 at the 6:03 mark. The Tigers shot 17-of-27 (63 percent) from the floor and held Marshall to just 26.9 percent shooting in the opening half, while dominating the Thundering Herd on the glass 21-12. Memphis took a 45-28 advantage into halftime. The Thundering Herd never got back into the game after going without a field goal for over six minutes during the Tigers’ decisive first-half run. Marshall found itself within 51-41 after an old-fashioned three-point play from Damier Pitts, but an emphatic putback jam from D.J. Stephens and a Carmouche triple on the next two Tiger possessions effectively put the game out of reach. Carmouche finished with 16 points, connecting on all three of his trey attempts and hitting 7-of-8 from the charity stripe. Freshman Tarik Black, who played alongside Coleman for much of the game, finished just one rebound short of his own double-double with 12 points and nine boards. Will Barton settled into his mid-range game against the Thundering Herd, making 7-of-9 shots from inside the arc in a 15-point, five-assist effort. DeAndre Kane led Marshall with 16 points and five rebounds, while Tirrell Baines added 15 points of his own. Pitts finished with 14 points, but shot just 4-of-16 from the floor. The Tigers finished the game shooting 50.9 percent from the floor and 72.7 percent from the free throw line. Memphis won the battle on the glass 39-29. The Tigers defense held Marshall to 37 percent shooting from the floor and 22.2 percent from the three-point arc.

In what will go down as the Tigers’ biggest comeback in the last 40 seasons, Charles Carmouche buried a threepointer from the left wing with :01.2 on the clock to lift Memphis to a thrilling 76-75 victory over rival Southern Miss in Conference USA action. Chris Crawford intercepted the Golden Eagles’ inbounds pass on the ensuing possession to seal the win. Memphis was down by 18 points at 29-11with 7:49 to go in the first half and came back to win the game, marking the largest comeback by a Tiger squad since 1970-71. The Tigers cut the Southern Miss lead to 11 points at 40-29 at the break and was still down by double digits (48-37) five minutes into the second half. That’s when Memphis chipped away. A 10-3 Tigers’ run over a 3:44 span sliced a 48-37 Golden Eagle lead to 51-46 at the 12:14 mark of the second half. Southern Miss regained its composure and built the advantage back to nine points at 62-53 with only 7:46 left. The Tigers, though, went on another run — this time a 16-4 spurt to take their first lead of the game at 69-66 with 3:17 left. Crawford hit two treys in the spurt, and Will Barton, who netted a team-high 15 points, hit the three-pointer that game Memphis the lead. After a D.J. Stephens’ dunk made it 71-66, the Golden Eagles responded with an 8-2 spurt to retake the lead at 74-73 on an R.L. Horton lane jumper with 16 seconds left. Carmouche’s jumper with 11 seconds missed, and Horton grabbed the rebound and was fouled with :06.7 remaining. Horton hit 1-of-2 free throws, giving the Tigers one final chance. Joe Jackson took the inbounds pass, raced it up the right side of the court and hit Carmouche with a pinpoint, cross-court pass for the game-winning shot. In the first half, Southern Miss jumped on the Tigers early. After a 2-2 tie, the Golden Eagles went on a 10-0 run for a 12-2 advantage. Memphis cut the lead to 16-8, but the home squad raced to another 13-3 spurt for a 29-11 lead. Gary Flowers finished with a game-high 21 points. Horton added 18 points, seven rebounds and three assists. For Memphis, Crawford scored 12 points (all in second half), Carmouche 11 points and Joe Jackson 10 points. Tarik Black grabbed a game-high eight boards. Both teams shot over 50 percent from the floor (UofM, 50.8 percent; USM, 51.0 percent).

Will and Antonio Barton combined for 33 points and scored all six of Memphis’ points in the extra period en route to leading the Tigers to a 76-73 Conference USA overtime victory against UAB in a sold-out Bartow Arena. Despite missing its final four free throw attempts in overtime and shooting 51.9 percent (14-of-27) from the charity stripe throughout the game, Memphis once again managed to pull out the close victory. Blazers’ senior point guard Aaron Johnson, who finished the game with 13 points, made 1-of-2 free throws with six seconds left in regulation to force overtime. With four freshmen on the floor to start overtime, the Tigers responded by scoring the first five points in the extra period before Johnson cut the lead to 73-70 with 35 seconds remaining. Memphis countered when Tarik Black, who finished with 15 points and hit all five of his field goal attempts, stepped to the line and calmly knocked down two free throws with :26 left in overtime. Antonio Barton made 1-of-2 from the line on the next Memphis possession before Cameron Moore drilled a contested trifecta to make it a one-possession game. Will and Antonio Barton both missed two free throws on the next two Memphis possessions, but a last-second shot by the Blazers clanked off the rim allowing the Tigers to escape with their 10th-straight victory over UAB. Will Coleman was the only other Tiger to finish in double figures, as the senior finished with 13 points and three rebounds off the bench. The Tigers shot 28-of-53 (52.8 percent) from the floor, including 6-of-18 (33.3 percent) from long range. Moore, who scored 13 of the Blazers’ first 23 points, finished with 24 points and 11 rebounds. Jamarr Sanders scored 15 points, but was 0-of-10 from the three-point arc. Johnson added five assists and four rebounds. Despite coming into the contest ranked 10th in CUSA in three-point field goal percentage defense, Memphis held UAB without a trifecta until the 13:32 mark in the second half. The Blazers finished the contest just 2-of23 from deep.

Will Barton scored 17 points and Joe Jackson added 12 points as Memphis turned in a solid all-around performance and sent UCF to its fifth-straight loss 77-61 in Conference USA action at FedExForum. Barton, playing in front of his father for the first time this season at FedExForum, didn’t disappoint. The freshman wing scored 14 of his 17 points in the first half en route to leading Memphis to a 47-28 opening-half advantage. After an A.J. Rompza layup evened the score at 16-all with 11:09 to play in the first half, the Tigers responded with a 16-4 run to regain control and take a 32-20 lead. The Knights, though, answered with a quick 6-0 run of their own and cut the margin to 32-26 with just over four minutes to go before the break. The Tigers finished the half on a 15-2 run — fueled by seven points from Barton and five from Chris Crawford — to take a 47-28 halftime lead and put the game out of reach. Crawford finished with 10 points in the contest, as four Tigers mustered double-figures in the victory. Though he fouled out with over eight minutes to play, Tarik Black was a force inside for the Tigers and set the tone early with three blocks in the first five minutes of play. Black finished with a career-best five blocks to complement nine points and four rebounds in 22 minutes. Antonio Barton finished with nine points on 4-of-6 shooting. Sophomore Drew Barham, making his fourth-consecutive start, finished with five points, five assists and seven rebounds and came up with every loose ball when needed. Marcus Jordan, son of NBA great Michael Jordan, scored 13 points, including 7-of-7 from the charity stripe. P.J. Gaynor was the only other Knight to finish in double figures, tallying 10 points in 15 minutes off the bench. The Tigers shot 48.5 percent from the field, while holding the Knights to 35.5 percent from the floor and 6.7 percent from the three-point line (1-of-15). The Memphis defense collected 11 steals and forced 22 UCF turnovers. The Knights out-boarded Memphis 47-33, including pulling down 22 offensive rebounds.

DeAndre Kane led four Thundering Herd players in double figures with a game-high tying 20 points to lift Marshall to an 85-70 Conference USA victory over Memphis at the Cam Henderson Center. Tirrell Baines and Damier Pitts each added 17 points, while Shaquille Johnson scored 10 points. Baines led Marshall on the glass with a game-best eight rebounds. Will Barton led Memphis with 20 points. Tarik Black (14 points) and Joe Jackson (12) also netted double digits for the Tigers. Black and Charles Carmouche each grabbed five boards to lead Memphis. Marshall held a 39-27 advantage at halftime and extended that lead to 16 points at 57-41 with 11:27 left to play. Pitts and Dago Pena paced the second-half opening run for the Thundering Herd with five points apiece. The Tigers, though, had one more spurt in them left. Over the next four minutes, Memphis trimmed the Marshall lead from 16 points to five (18-7 run) at 64-59 with 7:19 remaining. Barton, Black and Jackson accounted for all 18 Tiger points in the spurt. Marshall weathered the Tigers storm and answered with a 12-2 run to push its lead back to double digits at 76-61 with only 5:11 left to play. In the run, the Thundering Herd converted two three-point plays to put the game out of reach. In the first half, Memphis and Marshall played to a standstill in the first eight minutes, and the home team held a 13-12 lead at the 11:56 mark. Over the next seven minutes, Marshall went on a 17-5 spurt to take control of the contest with a 30-17 advantage. Johnson, Pena and Pitts each hit a three-pointer to ignite the Thundering Herd run. Memphis shot 42.4 percent from the field and 72.7 percent from the foul line. The Thundering Herd hit 46.6 percent from the floor and 64.9 percent from the charity stripe. Marshall out-rebounded the Tigers 38-34, and the Thundering Herd defense forced 13 Memphis turnovers. The Tigers entered the game ranked first in C-USA in assists and steals, but only had eight dimes and five swipes.

Tulsa 68 • Memphis 65 Feb. 2, 2011 • Memphis, Tenn.

Memphis 62 • Gonzaga 58 Feb. 5, 2011 • Spokane, Wash.

The Memphis Tigers, owners of the nation’s best record in conference home games over the last five years, fought one of their toughest battles of the season before falling to a veteran-laden Golden Hurricane squad 68-65 in Conference USA action. Memphis did a good job defending C-USA scoring leader Justin Hurtt. The Tulsa guard missed his first 11 shots from the field and was held to no first-half points for the first time this season due, in large part, to the defensive presence of freshman guard Chris Crawford, who marked the senior guard throughout the contest. An early Tarik Black dunk set the tone for the Tigers, who scored their first 20 points from inside the paint. However, a four-minute scoring drought in the first half allowed Tulsa to grab a 23-21 lead with under five minutes to play before halftime. A four-point play from Will Barton jump-started the offense again for the Tigers, whose offense had gotten stagnant after Black left the game with three fouls. Memphis nursed a three-point lead at 30-27 into halftime. Memphis started out strong in the second half, stretching the lead out to 10 points at 37-27 with 17:11 left. The run was highlighted by a D.J. Stephens’ monster dunk. The Tigers held Tulsa without a bucket for almost three minutes to begin the second half before Hurtt finally got on the board. Tulsa slowly chipped away at the Tiger lead, whittling the deficit down to one with eight minutes remaining. A Joe Jackson foul on Tulsa’s Scottie Haralson three-point attempt gave Tulsa its first lead of the second half with 7:36 to go, but Will Barton equalized the game at 51-all on the other end with two made charity tosses. Antonio Barton then made another huge three-pointer for the Tigers, his second of the game, to put Memphis up two at 54-52 with 5:50 left. The teams traded baskets and possessions down the stretch with neither gaining the upper hand for long. Two Hurtt free throws with 1:19 to go put the Golden Hurricane up one at 62-61. Hurtt then followed with a runner in the lane with 36 seconds left put Tulsa on top for good at 6461. Crawford put up a three early in the shot clock on the next possession that was unsuccessful. After an exchange of free throws and layups, the Tigers had a final chance to tie the game when Antonio Barton stole the Tulsa inbounds with :05 left. His and his brother’s desperation three-point attempts both came up short.

Antonio Barton scored 17 points, including the last four, and his brother, Will, added 12 points, seven rebounds and six assists to lead Memphis to a 62-58 non-conference victory over Gonzaga at Spokane Arena. Leading 32-30 at the half, Memphis went on a 15-4 run out of the locker room to open a 47-34 advantage, with an Antonio Barton trifecta at the 13:38 mark the final three poitns of the spurt. Memphis, however, would go almost the next 13 minutes without a field goal, and the Bulldogsfought back to take a 54-53 lead with 3:03 to play. After a second-consecutive layup from Robert Sacre, Charles Carmouche finally ended the Tigers’ field goal drought with a triple from the right corner to tie the game at 56-all with 1:44 to play. Will Barton and Scare then each made a pair of free throws before Antonio Barton knocked down a 17-foot jumper to give the Tigers the lead 60-58 with 35 seconds to play. On the next Bulldogs’ possession, Tarik Black poked the ball away from Sacre, and Antonio Barton recovered the loose ball and was fouled with :01.9 left. Barton knocked down both free throws to seal the game and fittingly stole the ensuing Gonzaga inbounds play to close out the victory. Carmouche finished with 13 points, including three big-time three-pointers. Trailing 25-17 in the first half, Carmouche nailed a shot from long range to start an 8-0 run in which Memphis tied the game at 28-all. Will Coleman was solid coming off the bench, finishing with nine points on 4-of-5 shooting to go along with seven rebounds in 30 minutes of action. Black finished with six points and seven rebounds, including five on the offensive glass. Memphis outrebounded Gonzaga 36-29. Steven Gray led the way on offensive for Gonzaga with 12 points on 4-of-14 shooting, and Kelly Olynyk (10 points) was the only other player to finish in double figures. Sacre finished with nine points and three rebounds, while Elias Harris struggled to eight points on 3-of-9 shooting.
