Elliot Williams had 19 points and Roburt Sallie 17 for the Tigers (15-6, 5-2).

An Elliot Williams field goal made the score 50-48 in SMU's favor with 4:34 remaining, but the Mustangs went on a 6-0 run and protected the lead with free throws down the stretch.

After a 64-game Conference USA winning streak that ended on Jan. 20, Memphis has lost two of its last four league contests.
