Marcus Moody scored 25 points to lead all scorers in a 112-42 University of Memphis (6-8) romp over Howard University (2-9). Moody's 25 also earned him a spot on the 1,000 point plateau, sharing the accomplishment with only 33 other Memphis players. The 70 point victory was the 2nd largest in team history and saw 6 Tigers with double digit scores. Shyrone Chatman and Scooter McFadgon added 19 points each, Kelly Wise had 18, and Shannon Forman and Earl Barron finished with 10 each. Chatman also had 7 assists, and Wise grabbed a game-high 14 rebounds. Memphis shot .586 from the field and hit 15 three pointers as a team. The 15 threes is also a school record that has stood since Memphis knocked in 13 three's against Florida Atlantic in 1993. The Tigers forced 17 Bison turnovers while dishing 26 assists to only 9 Tiger turnovers. The 100-point effort by the Tigers is their first since 1994. The Bison shot only .258 for the game with Ali Abdullah scoring 12 points. Memphis jumped to an early 12-point lead and continued to harass the Bison shooters until the half, going into the locker-room with a score of 50-23, favoring Memphis. In the second half, the Tigers kept coming, making the game a blowout and giving Memphis its 6th win of the season. The Tigers play next at the University of Houston (3-9, 0-0) on January 6, where they will try to even their Conference USA record to 1-1.
