Memphis Handles Houston, 69-60 

Tyreke Evans came out of his two-game slump with a vengeance Wednesday night, leading Memphis to a 69-60 win over Houston.

Evans scored the Tigers' first nine points, as Memphis surged to a quick 11-2 lead. But Houston battled back in the second half, tying the Tigers twice, at 42 and again at 50. Houston was never able to take the lead, however, and Memphis pulled away in the last five minutes.

Evans led the Tigers with 23 points. Shawn Taggart had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Robert Dozier chipped in 13. The Tigers were a perfect 14 of 14 from the foul line.

Houston, which fell to 18-10 on the season, was led by Aubrey Coleman with 19. Memphis (27-3) extended its CUSA winning streak to 57, and its overall winning streak to 21.

Box score.
