Tigers Bounce UAB, 71-60 

The Memphis Tigers overcame a rare off-night by freshman point guard Tyreke Evans with balanced scoring from the four other starters to beat UAB in Birmingham, 71-60.

Doneal Mack led the Tigers with 17 points. Robert Dozier (15 pts., 10 rebounds) and Shawn Taggart (13 pts., 11 rebounds) had double-doubles, and Antonio Anderson had 16 points, as Memphis pulled away late to beat their strongest CUSA rival.

Evans was held to 8 points (on 3-14 shooting) and had 9 turnovers. But the Tiger defense held UAB scoring leader Robert Vaden scoreless on 0-17 shooting from the field.

The Tigers extended their CUSA winning streak to 55 games, and won their 19th straight game since their last loss on December 20th. Memphis is 25-3 overall, 13-0 in CUSA, clinching the conference regular-season title.

Box score.
