MONTREAL, Quebec–University of Memphis’ Shaq Goodwin and Nick King each scored 16 points to lead the Tigers to a 93-71 exhibition-game victory over McGill University Monday night at Love Hall. The game was played with a 24-second shot clock instead of the 30-second clock in the Tigers’ previous two exhibition games.
The Redmen scored the game’s first two points on a Sebastian Beckett jumper, but the Tigers responded with 14-straight points to take a 14-2 lead and control of the contest. Avery Woodson started the run with a three-pointer and five other Tigers scored in the run.
McGill cut the Memphis advantage to 11 points on two occasions in the third period, but did not get any closer. The Tigers used a 12-4 run near the end of the third period to increase a 60-49 lead to 72-53.
The Tigers wrap up their Canadian exhibition tour Tuesday with a second match-up against Carleton University. Game time is 6 p.m. (CT).
