MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Tigers are halfway home to their goal of winning four games in four days to earn the American Athletic Conference’s automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament.
Friday, the U of M made quick work of UCF, turning the lights out on the Knights in blowout fashion, 79-55.
Much of the credit goes to but Tiger bigs Kyvon Davenport and Isaiah Maurice.
Davenport had 16 points. The real surprise was Maurice, who scored a career-high 21 points to put away UCF.
The Tigers advance into Saturday’s AAC semifinals.
