Tigers Top Oklahoma in Madison Square Garden, 63-53 

Derrick Rose had 17 points and Joey Dorsey had 9 points, 13 rebounds, and five blocks to lead the Memphis Tigers to a workman-like victory over the Oklahoma Sooners Thursday night in Madison Square Garden.

Memphis did not play particularly well offensively, shooting 37 percent from the field and making only 11 of 21 foul shots, but the Tigers' defensive intensity and depth held the Sooners at bay nearly the entire game. Every time Oklahoma closed the gap, Memphis responded.

Joey Dorsey, making his season debut, was a dominating force inside, blocking or altering shots, and nabbing 13 rebounds.

The Tigers play UConn Friday night in the title game of the 2K Sports College Hoops Classic.
