Memphis made seven 3-pointers and shot 52.4, forcing the outmanned Bison into 19 turnovers and 36.6 percent shooting.

The Tigers trailed 10-4 early, but broke the game open with a 20-2 run midway through the first half.

"It's amazing," said Bison guard Kevin Bettencourt, who added, "It's definitely frustrating because they shut everything down."

The Tigers take on Bradley, which upset heavily favored Pittsburgh next weekend.
