Memphis has scored at least 90 points in five straight games. The Tigers shot 59 percent from the field in handing the Rattlers their 12th loss in 15 contests.

The U of M opens American Athletic Conference play Thursday night at FedExForum when Wichita State (7-5) comes to town. The Shockers won last season's meeting, 85-65, on the Tigers' home floor.
