Memphis Squeaks By Southern Miss, 67-64 

Jeremy Hunt and Chris Douglas-Roberts led a late-game comeback, as the Tigers squeezed out a home victory over the Golden Eagles.

Though leading much of the game, the Tigers could never stretch their lead much beyond six points. Southern Miss made a run and took a six-point lead over the Tigers in the last eight minutes.

Hunt and Douglas-Roberts scored critical buckets and the Tigers' defense stiffened to give Memphis its 25th straight home victory. Joey Dorsey had 16 rebounds and seven points for the Tigers.

Guard Jeremy Wise led Southern Miss with 28 points. Recap and box score.
