Jan 17, 2010 - 4:26 AM HOUSTON(AP) -- Elliot Williams scored more than 30 points for the second time this month as he led Memphis to a record-setting 80-68 victory over Rice on Saturday night.

The Tigers (13-4, 3-0) took their 52nd straight win over Conference USA teams, breaking the all-time NCAA record for consecutive victories in regular-season conference play.

The previous mark of 51 was set by Kentucky between 1950 and 1954.

Arsalan Kazemi picked up his fourth double-double of the season for the Owls (6-11, 0-4), scoring 15 points and pulling down 11 rebounds. Trey Stanton led the Owls with 18 points.

Roburt Sallie helped the Tigers with 12 points, while Willie Kemp finished with 11.
